Bulk also teamed up with the influencers Alex Crockford, Hayley Madigan, Emily Gervasio and Tristan Defeuillet-Van to showcase the impact of body editing apps. Bulk created one image with subtle changes and one with the same amount of edits as searches for the apps in their respective home countries, making the influencers unrecognisable to create awareness around overusing the body editing apps and encourage body positivity.

Abi Roberts, Sports Nutritionist at Bulk, said: ‘’The rise of social media in today’s society has had a positive effect on many users but it also has a tendency to encourage unhealthy habits and fuel dysmorphia. We believe in body positivity and wanted to create awareness around overusing the body editing tools and encourage people to focus on health-boosting goals rather than unrealistic body image expectations.’’
