They start to compare their body type with their peers and even celebrities. Also, they start to stalk their profiles all day and demotivate themselves by seeing those attractive posts.

After gazing at those glamorous posts, people start to focus more on their body looks. Several pictures are edited using software and apps to make them appear eye-catching.
