There is an incredible amount of pressure on people today to look perfect stemming ultra-thin models gracing magazines and billboard covers. The media in general puts an enormous emphasis on the outward appearance, sadly it has an ill effect on the general public feeling less than in terms of appearance, when the reality is, many of these pictures are treated to some lengthy Photoshop sessions. It still has a daunting effect on all ages.
