Body image is the mental representation we create of what we think we look like. It may or may not bear a close relation to how others actually see us. Nevertheless, it strongly influences the behavior and the way we carry ourselves. The question is what negative effects do the images displayed have on a person's body image? The way beauty is portrayed in the media causes dissatisfaction and negative thoughts about oneself when we cannot achieve to look like what we see on social media. Studies have shown that one in every 3.8 commercials have a message about attractiveness in it. 1850 messages and images a person sees on social media specifically talk about beauty. Body dissatisfaction and eating disorder patterns have been found to be especially prevalent issue in adolescent and college females. Body issues do become a major issue as females go through puberty. Girls in middle adolescent frequently report being dissatisfied with their weight and fearing further weight gain. Traditionally, most of the concerns about media and body image have revolved around girls. But more and more researchers and health professionals are turning their attention to boys as well. A growing body of research indicates that although boys are less likely to talk about their insecurities, they too experience anxiety about their bodies. Eating disorders are also on the rise among boys particularly athletes. There are also concerns that some boys, some as young as 10 years old, are becoming obsessed on building a muscular physique,a condition that is thought to be related to changes in how muscular male sex symbols have become over the last two decades. In conclusion, the mass media's depiction of woman portrayed is a standard of beauty that is unrealistic and unattainable for the majority of women in the society. With intervention we can bump up the measure of self identity and self acceptance.
