Do You Retouch Your Photos?

Honestly speaking, I am proud to say that I have never retouched my photos in order to enhance my appearance. Yes, I do edit the colors of my photos by increasing the vibrancy, contrast, etc. But I've never used Photoshop to make my waist seem smaller or to remove the cellulite on my legs. As you can see in these photos taken at the beach, all my unwanted lines are visible. I do get insecure about my stretch marks and my "thigh gap" but I've learned to embrace all these flaws. In the first place, I don't think they are flaws. It's natural as we get older that our body changes. As much as I try to diet and work out, some times it really just won't go away. The problem is, we live in a society that tells us that we have to look like models in order to be perfect. I think everyone is perfect just the way they are. The only time I think it's necessary for you to go undergo surgery or on a strict diet is when health reasons are involved. Life would be a lot easier if you tune out what society dictates.
