What Happened When People From 19 Countries Were Asked To Photoshop The 'Perfect' Male Body

Body pressures transcend gender.

Superdrug Online Doctor previously created a photo series about the sometimes-unrealistic standards of female beauty, and they just released a sequel project this week. Called "Perceptions of Perfection: Part II," the series focuses on the pressures men face when it comes to their bodies.

Just like women, men around the world are told they should look a certain way. Many men struggle with their body image due to unrealistic expectations set by the media. One out of 3 positive screenings for an eating disorder in college is male.

Superdrug Online Doctor asked graphic designers in 19 different countries to Photoshop a photo of a man to conform to their nation's standard of male beauty.

Here is the original photo.
