Babies airbrushed to look “more perfect”

The UK’s Practical Parenting and Pregnancy magazine admitted to airbrushing babies. The reasons? So they could, “put them across in their best light.”

According to an article on Jezebel, one editor explained,”We lightened his eyes and his general skin tone, smoothed out any blotches and the creases on his arms…But we want it to look natural.”

Is this some kind of sick joke? They are babies. Our society starts with the most innocent form of life, and retouches them because apparently baby wrinkles are not acceptable.

What kind of message does this send?
