Social media has a big impact on body dysmorphia. Spending more time on screens and using social media is connected to a worrying increase in this disorder, especially among teenagers. Editing apps and filters have made it hard to see reality clearly. Many people, especially women under 30, change their selfies before posting them. This can make them feel unhappy with their real appearance compared to their digitally altered pictures. Platforms like TikTok mostly show attractive faces based on standard ideas of beauty, which can make people compare themselves and feel dissatisfied with how they look. Comparing ourselves to others on social media can make us feel like we’re not good enough. Harmful challenges and trends on social media also make unrealistic beauty standards more common, which leads to more people feeling unhappy with their bodies. To handle the effects of social media on body image, it’s important to use it thoughtfully, be aware of editing tools, and follow accounts that promote positivity and accepting yourself as you are.
