Estrela do Instagram mostra fotos do seu corpo antes e depois do Photoshop

Redação Hypeness - 07/06/2017 | Atualizada em - 10/07/2017


Que mulher nunca se olhou no espelho se achando gorda demais, muito branca (ou muito negra), com celulites ou estrias… Não tem problema encontrar um ou outro defeito em nossa própria aparência. O problema é quando, além de ser condicionado pelo que vemos por aí, esses “defeitos” só surgem porque nos comparamos com imagens de corpos irreais, criados em softwares de edição de imagens.

Sobre essa questão, a psicóloga, ativista da aceitação corporal e Instagramer Stacey Lee criou uma série de imagens mostrando suas fotos antes e depois dos retoques no Photoshop. As imagens foram publicadas em seu Instagram @psychandsquats, que já soma mais de 22 mil seguidores.

KEEP IT REAL! Oh dear lord if you told me I'd have the strength and confidence to post this a year ago I would have laughed in your face…but here it goes ? . ?? Left = reality ??Right = everything that's wrong with social media and advertisements ⭐️ Do you know why we hate ourselves so much? Because everything we see tells us to. ? The magazines I read at 12 years old all showed pictures like on the right here. Photoshopped. Altered. Glorified. Unrealistic. Impossible. FAKE! Stop trying to look like the girl in the magazine. Even she doesn't look like the girl in the magazine⭐️ I can't live up to those expectations. Nobody can. It sets girls up for failure, disappointment, and low self esteem. How many apps are designed to lie to people? I altered this photo in under two minutes. Smaller waist, bigger butt, and smoother thighs. ??‍♀️ Did you know to achieve this look in reality it would involve removing ribs, while bulking to gain muscle mass, and applying sandpaper to my legs and then polishing them…?? I'm not saying don't work hard to improve yourself. I'm saying don't work in the hopes of achieving something impossible. Know what is REALISTIC and you will set yourself up for success. Ps. Yes I'm aware I have cellulite. Yes it's an insecurity. This is terrifying. But shit I'm human. ??#keepingitreal #dedicated #bodytransformation #transformationtuesday #strongnotskinny #bbg #bodygoals #fitness #inspo #kaylaitsines #progressnotperfection #muscle #training #girlswholift #transformation #motivation

As revistas que eu lia com 12 anos todas mostravam fotos como a da direita. Photoshopadas. Alteradas, Glorificadas. Irreais. Impossíveis. FALSAS! Pare de tentar parecer com a garota na revista. Nem ela mesma parece com a garota na revista“, escreveu ela em sua primeira publicação, no dia 24 de abril. Na legenda, Stacey, que é natural de Melbourne, na Austrália, também conta que alterou a foto em apenas dois minutos. Porém, para que essas mudanças ocorressem na vida real talvez fosse preciso até mesmo que ela retirasse uma costela, simplesmente porque sua estrutura óssea não é tão fina quanto a foto editada mostra.

FEAR THE PHOTOSHOPPED PHOTO! How many times have you looked at a photo of yourself and thought negatively about it? How many times have you compared yourself to the models in the magazine, or more likely, the 'models' on instagram and social media and thought 'nope I don't look like that'? ? How many times have you been tempted to add a filter, tweak the cellulite, remove the blemish, maximize the booty, in order to portray a more 'socially acceptable' version of yourself to the world? Because you feel you aren't 'enough' as you are. ? Subconsciously we are primed to find certain body types more acceptable. This can be very subtle changes to photographs seen on a daily basis. But these small changes resonate deeply within our minds. Shaping our beliefs about the way we 'should' look, and therefore creates unrealistic comparisons and perpetuates negative self talk which becomes low self esteem. ? Recognizing the signs of a photoshopped image is important for our mental health. Understanding that sometimes what we are looking at is simply a fantastical image created on something designed to suit virtual reality, NOT the real world. ? The good news is. YOU HAVE CONTROL! Don't like someone images because they make you feel shit? You look and think 'why can't that be me, why aren't my legs smooth, my thighs smaller, my butt bigger, my waist skinnier, my arms more defined? I'm disgusting. I'm fat. I'm gross'…UNFOLLOW!!!!! ? I have been victim to this myself. I unfollowed a lot of women (no offense) because it was damaging my self esteem. I didn't look and feel motivated, I felt devalued and defective. I only follow people who remind me to stay REAL with myself and with the world. Yes I'll add a filter sometimes, I love photography. But I'll NEVER adjust my body through an app and post it as a real image. That's adding fuel to an already all consuming fire. ? Take your control. Don't fear your unfiltered self ? #keepingitreal #dedicated #bodytransformation #transformationtuesday #strongnotskinny #bbg #bodygoals #fitness #inspo #kaylaitsines #progressnotperfection #muscle #training #girlswholift #fitspo

A segunda imagem do gênero foi publicada no dia 8 de maio. “Quantas vezes você se comparou com as modelos nas revistas ou mais provavelmente com as modelos no Instagram e outras mídias sociais e pensou ‘não, eu não pareço assim’?“, dizia a legenda. Stacey lembra que é importante reconhecer quando estamos diante de imagens alteradas digitalmente para que não acreditemos que aquele ideal de corpo é algo possível de ser alcançado.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE UP? Psych Stace signing in ??‍? One of the recurrent themes I treat in my profession is body image and its effect on self esteem. Self esteem is defined as confidence in ones own worth. However when that worth is tied to an image, a number on a scale, the size of clothes, the smoothness of skin, the smallness of a waist, the bigness of a butt, the definition on your abs, or the gap between your thighs, your worth will never me measured correctly. One of the reasons behind this is that the measuring stick we use, is based on lies, manipulations and imagined ideals. We are primed to believe a certain standard of 'beauty' is the goal. We are shown images every day which are not realistic, even the small changes to photos or advertisements make a difference. They send subconscious messages saying that you aren't enough, and never will be. As soon as I stopped following accounts that used photoshop, professional images (regularly that is, shit photo shoots are fun I won't knock you for that), constant filters, and altered their images, my self esteem improved. Being able to see real women share their real bodies, which still look incredible! Gave me the confidence to work for my realistic goals, and to measure my progress on a REAL measuring stick. This image was not created to say I don't like how I look in the real photo, it's to say the opposite actually. I love the work I've put in to look like the photo on the left. The point of this image is to show that when something that is already 'good' is altered to be 'better', it teaches people that your 'real' isn't good enough. I don't want to ever perpetuate or encourage that twisted notion. So I post these photos to combat that idea and to raise awareness of the damage it can have. So, what measuring stick are you using?

Um dos temas recorrentes que eu trato em minha profissão é a imagem corporal e seus efeitos na autoestima. Autoestima é definida como a confiança no nosso próprio valor. Entretanto, quando esse valor está associado a uma imagem, um número na balança, o tamanho das roupas, a suavidade da pele, a largura da cintura, o tamanho da bunda, a definição dos abdômens ou o espaço entre suas coxas, seu valor nunca será medido corretamente. Uma das razões por trás disso é que o nosso termômetro está baseado em mentiras, manipulações e ideais imaginados.“, conclui ela na última imagem, publicada há uma semana.
