Can you believe
people want to look like their Snapchat Filter? If you're
wondering, Snapchat Filters kind of animate yourself to look
like a caricature with fuller lips, bigger eyes or a
thinner nose etc.
Researchers from the Boston University School of
Medicine are calling the condition Snapchat dysmorphia, a
form of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in which people have
“an excessive preoccupation with a perceived flaw in
appearance.” “This is an alarming trend because those
filtered selfies often present an unattainable look and are
blurring the line of reality and fantasy for these
patients.” I can understand why they would want to change
themselves to be better then they really are. We all want to
be better. I'm suggesting that instead of cosmetic surgery,
exercise and do fitness routines. There are many things
people can do to better themselves without the use of
surgery. I am bettering myself right now by writing and
drawing everyday. After just 3 days, I can already tell I'm
all for the better because of it.
