Influencers Surprise Everyone By Revealing How They Look In Real Life Vs. Their Instagram Photos

Published 5 months ago

In the past years, most of the photos we see on social media have gotten so fake, the line between reality and fiction became so blurred, you can hardly see it any more. All the filters and excessive photoshopping can make people look almost unrecognizable. And the worst part is that looking at these types of overly-edited photos can make you chase unrealistic body expectations.

Two supposedly Chinese influencers recently revealed just how much editing goes into producing the perfect social media photo. They posted pictures of themselves with and without filters, and they’ll make you realize that photoshopping no longer means blurring out freckles or hiding a pimple.

The photos originally went viral in China but were eventually posted to Faceebook by Jevin Cheng, aka Ex Treme, where they got over 18k shares and nearly 6k likes. Not only that, over 11k people commented on the post and many simply couldn’t believe their eyes, and, honestly, it’s not hard to see why.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
