Aerie model Iskra Lawrence has always been proud of her natural curves, but the 25-year-old recently took to Instagram to show just how much of an impact Photoshop can have on one's self-esteem.

Wearing the same bikini in side-by-side pics, the blonde bombshell left one unretouched, while editing the other to fit within today's standards of beauty.

🚫 shocking it only took me about 10minutes to photoshop myself to "perfection". But WTF is perfect? We weren't born thinking flaws made you less beautiful we are taught by society and the media that we should feel insecure about our flaws so we buy into certain products etc to "improve" or attain perfection. I wanted to post the unretouched pic right next to the retouched one so you could see the impact of how a few edits all done on my phone can completely change the way someone looks. I can't leave home everyday retouched & live in the "real world" airbrushed so why would I want to pretend to be online❓we are beautiful because we are us and we are so much more than our appearance. I hope when you see what looks like perfect flawless images of ppl online you don't not ever feel insecure or less beautiful because it's not real. What's real is you and you are good enough cus those "flaws" make you completely unique. 🦄✨ #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful 👙 @simplybeuk Tag a friend who is beautiful just being the REAL them🙌✨
