A photo series has shown the lengths some young people go to to edit their appearance before posting pictures on social media platforms like Instagram - and the results are pretty shocking.
The project, entitled Selfie Harm, saw renowned British photographer Rankin photograph 15 British teens aged 13-19.
The teens were then asked to spend five minutes editing the photo until they thought it looked "social media-ready."
The shots show not only how simple it is to change your appearance in a few minutes (thanks to the plethora of apps available nowadays), but also the pressure young people are under to look a certain way.

Some enlarged their eyes and lips, and added makeup too.
"This is just another reason why we are living in a world of FOMO, sadness, increased anxiety, and Snapchat dysmorphia," he continued.
"It's time to acknowledge the damaging effects that social media has on people's self-image."
"What's even scarier is there's little or no debate happening around this. Something like Photoshop, which is a much more complex and inaccessible program, is actually part of a huge social ethical discussion.
"These filters are something very new and, in my opinion, a lot more dangerous. It's almost like giving a teenager access to a Photoshop expert."
The website reads: "In the age of the influencer, we're increasingly force-fed thousands of images every day.
"Hyper-retouched, sexually gratuitous bite-sized images are served up fast and fleeting. They often leave us feeling hollow and inadequate.
"These are the empty calories. The visual calories we gorge on because they're there. Our appetite for this type of content is insatiable. It is visual sugar and we are addicted.
"Consuming too much of this content seriously harms your mental health."
