25 Unedited Pics Proving Real Beauty Is Way Different Than The Photoshopped Perfection We See On Instagram

Social media is often criticized for its unrealistic portrayal of people’s lives, with photoshopped and staged photos and a focus on perfection leading to feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt.

However, it is rare to come across unedited and authentic images on these platforms, which serve as a refreshing reminder to not take everything at face value and to question the authenticity of the curated content shared by influencers. They bring a dose of realism to the otherwise contrived atmosphere of social media.

The Instagram Reality subreddit exposes Instagrammers and influencers who manipulate their images. As a result, it has become a source of authentic and unedited pictures that showcase real beauty.
