7. Airbrushing

Lastly, it's important not to forget the impact that a celebrity's physical image has on fans either. When they see the airbrushed photos so common nowadays, fans absorb the message that this is how women should look. But most celebrities look nothing like their own photos without makeup and airbrushing.

So we really shouldn't aspire to look like them, when they don't really look like themselves either!

Ultimately, celebrities are people just like the rest of us; they just happen to get a lot more attention for doing their job than we do. So be selective about whom you admire and why. Don't admire them for doing stupid things - it's really not that clever. Who do you think really deserves to be admired?
