45 Photos Shared On The 'Instagram Vs. Reality' Group That Show What Real Beauty Is In Contrast To Edited Ones

by Maryjane

Take a picture with your normal phone camera and compare it to the one you took with a filter. You’ll find that the one with the filter is always more beautiful than the one taken with a normal camera.

But does that make you any less beautiful? Of course not. The online world is filled with picture-perfect scenarios, banging bodies and flawless skin, but that isn’t the world we see around us.

The online world makes even the most awesome of us briefly critical, but at the same time, the internet is brimming with healthy, soul-recuperating content to put any misinformation to rest. Despite the fact that social media can feel like it's full of fakeness, boasting, and photo editing, there are also times when individuals take such truthful photographs of themselves that it looks like a much needed breath of fresh air.

Some of you may know r/Instagramreality, which is a subreddit with more than one million members, as a spot that calls out influencers and Instagram users who photoshop their pictures all around the world. The subreddit has a supposed "Sanity Sunday," and this is when redditors are urged to post unedited pictures of what genuine beauty looks like.
