Social media has allowed us to filter out all imperfections, redefining standards of beauty. This panel will examine the impact social media has on our self image, and explore ways we can approach bursting the 'bubble' of perfection and envision a more realistic model of health and beauty.

Focusing on the significant effects this picture perfect idealism is having on youth today, this panel will take an in-depth look at how content creators can -- and must -- empower their social media audience to embrace an authentic vision of themselves. At the core of this discussion, is a review of how authentic life can be fascinating on social media and how it can benefit brands to shift the lens.
