Too Long; Didn't Read

Instagram filters come in a variety of selections that enhance and alter facial structures. They allow users to take pictures with different coloured eyes, features that represent people from a particular culture, and the ability to change skin tone. The damaging effects they are having on society, young adults and people from cultural backgrounds that some filters are aimed at are having a devastating impact on users and their mental health. Many of the selfie filters on social media apps such as Instagram get rid of natural blemishes and pores on faces, making a face appear smooth and clear.
