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 10 minutes to photoshop myself to 'perfection,'" Iskra wrote next to the image. "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."
She continued, "I can't leave home everyday retouched & live in the 'real world' airbrushed so why would I want to pretend to be online? 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."
Clearly, Iskra's message struck a chord with fans given that it's received over 138,000 likes. Scroll through the gallery below to see more of her best social media photos!
