While you're browsing the beauty magazines in the checkout, do you ever wonder if the photo on the cover is ANYTHING like reality? Jezebel.com shows us truth and beauty magazines are quite a ways separate.

And guys wonder why they can't find a woman like the ones on the magazine covers? And women wonder why they can't lose enough weight to have those super-long concentration-camp arms?

It's tough when your standards of beauty involve massive amounts of Photoshop. Too bad they can't bottle it and sell it at the cosmetics counters.

Personally, I'd rather see photos of someone who looks like a real person, rather than a slightly animated Barbie doll.
This sort of "heroin chic" look is unnecessary, unrealistic, and unhealthy for women with self-image issues.
