    Body image is a major concern for teens because the media portrays perfection:  skinny, long hair, fair skin, and flawlessness.  But, this is not realistic.  More often than not, teens are not aware that celebrities are made to appear perfect through such technology as photoshopping and makeup.  These enhancements promote unrealistic expectations for both girls and boys.
