Many of you will have seen this "un-Photoshopped/untouched" image of Cindy Crawford that's been making it's way around the internet lately.  Whilst I applaud Cindy for this, let's not forget she is a supermodel who has made exorbitant amounts of money from her face and body FOR YEARS, so even without retouching, her "look" is … Continue reading Are apps and Photoshop ruining your self-esteem?
