It's a truth universally acknowledged that Instagram and real life don't always mirror one another. Even armed with that knowledge, it's sometimes hard to remember that what we see on the photo-sharing app isn't necessarily what goes on behind the scenes.
Chrissy Teigen revealed at Beautycon in LA that even she feels the pressure that goes hand-in-hand with posting a perfect photo on Instagram.
She admitted to feeling "inadequate" because of filters and face-editing apps.
“My old ass will go on social media," she said. "And I will look at the Photoshopping, Facetuning, and the apps — and everything that goes into creating what is now a hit Instagram photo — and I feel insanely inadequate."
Same, girl, same.
Teigen's advice? If you have "imperfections," show 'em off.
“I’ve been on shoots. I’ve been naked-to-naked with people. I will say that everyone has a stretch mark,” Teigen shared. “Every time I see [another person's] stretch mark, I’m like, ‘Girl, yes!’ It makes me feel better, and if more of us did that kind of shit, how many people would feel better?”
