Let's just put it out there right away: no one should be expected to look a certain way and there's no such thing as 'perfect' or 'normal'. What you see in magazines and on screen is usually the result of airbrushing and Photoshop, so it's different to what you might look like in real life. These influences on body image mean that as a young adult or teen, body image can be a particularly stressful area to navigate. The info here can help you understand your own body, and help you feel happy and healthy in your own skin.
