I’m not a selfie person, but that puts me in exclusive company. Most people take about a million selfies every day, and pick the most flattering ones to share with the social media world.
The problem some people see is that when you keep your bad angles off the Internet, you trick people into thinking you have no bad side, no flaws — a misconception that can end up making others feel really bad about their own imperfections.
That’s why some Instagram-famous fitness women have taken to posting photos of their worst angles taken mere seconds, minutes, or hours apart from an otherwise flattering shot — and they’re getting all the likes because of it.
Although the photos above were taken seconds apart, this 20-year-old based in Finland, posted them side-by-side to show her followers how she looks when she’s not posing for Instagram.
She pulled off this “transformation” by flexing her core, changing her pose, and standing in brighter light.
