Chrissy Teigen boycotts airbrushing apps

Chrissy Teigen plans to boycott photo-editing apps in the future.

The 29-year-old model, who was praised by fans after she posted an image of her stretch marks on Instagram earlier this month, thinks the world has forgotten what "normal people look like" and claims she will no longer airbrush her personal images.

Asked about the viral photograph, the Sports Illustrated beauty said: "I actually am working on a cookbook and I was bumping around in the kitchen and the door handle would just nick me every single time.

"And I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there.

"And I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn't feel like doing it anymore - and I'm never doing it again, because I think we forget what normal people look like now."

Outspoken Chrissy, who is married to Oscar-winning R&B singer John Legend, also claims a lot of celebrities rely on the apps to completely change their appearances.

She told the 'Meredith Vieira Show': "The standard is so ridiculous. I mean, people are nip-tucking [their pictures].

"It's gotten to a point where they're not smoothing their skin anymore. They are actually changing the shape of their body and everybody else - nobody can compare to that when you're fixing yourself so much. It's so unfair."
