A Majority Of Elementary School Girls Are Influenced By The Images They See In Magazines. Bad News.

I know — we all get it, celeb pictures are Photoshopped. But I still believe that even though we know this, constantly seeing the end product without catching a glimpse of the "before" results in unrealistic ideals.
