Don’t be fooled by what you see on social media. 

Model Iskra Lawrence shared two side-by-side images of herself in an August 9 Instagram post to show how easy it is to trim and smooth body parts using an app. 

“Shocking it only took me about 10minutes to photoshop myself to ‘perfection,’ Lawrence, 25, wrote. “I wanted to post the unretouched pic right next to the retouched one so you could see the impact of how a few edits all done on my phone can completely change the way someone looks.”

Her post received more than 138,000 likes. 

The face of the #AerieREAL campaign — which promotes body positivity — soared to internet stardom on April 1 when she posted a video of herself wearing lingerie and savoring a bag of potato chips in response to an online troll.

“This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT,” the curvy Brit wrote on Instagram before clapping back at the commenter who called her a “fat cow” and said plus-size models promote obesity.

“Everyone needs to stop eating McDonalds,” and “people like her [eat] too many bags of crisps [British slang for chips],” the hater also wrote.

The 5-foot-9 beauty didn’t always love her shape. “When I got rejected from the agencies, I was comparing myself to the models I saw, and at that point, all I saw was very, very slim models,” the Brit told Elle in February. “I didn’t have that body, so I would do extreme diets.”

“I just had it in my head that my body was holding me back from dreams, and that I couldn’t achieve it because my body wasn’t right,” she said. “Eventually I learned you are more than your body. Your body’s your home, and you need to love it and respect it. You are meant to be in that body, so look after it, love it and don’t let it be the reason for not doing something.”
