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.
