Sociocultural beauty standards have changed drastically over the decades and have reached a point now where women are expected to be unrealistically thin and men larger and more muscular. Concurrently, social media has become the most powerful and pervasive form of communicating these standards. As technology allows for the manipulation of digital images, it perpetuates these unrealistic and unattainable beauty standards. Social media's impact on body image and mental health will be discussed.
