20 Photos To Remind You That Photoshop Is One Big Lie

Walk past any news-stand or look up to any modern day billboard and you'll be greet with countless unrealistic images and Photoshopped individuals. They're specifically edited to make you feel inadequate and generate desire to fix that inadequacy. Their sole aim is to convince and co hearse you into buying their latest product.

Those pearly white teeth which are only achievable if you purchase the latest range of glitzy toothpaste, that flawless skin tone is within reach....but only if you buy a lifetimes supply of moisturizer.

The concept of digitally fixing, blurring, tweaking and enhancing everyday life isn't a new one. Each day millions of individuals add a bevy of filters to their latest Instagram uploads. But when digital manipulation becomes ubiquitous in everyday life, it's easy to fall into the trap that such beauty and perfection is the norm.

To that end, here's a selection of celebrities before and after their unrealistic Photoshop treatments. Hopefully they will serve as a reminder that none of us are perfect - despite what the media would like you to believe.
