A Retouch Too Far

Just because you CAN remove wrinkles with image editing software doesn’t mean you SHOULD–with great Photoshop skill comes great responsibility. England has apparently banned a set of Olay ads featuring retouched aging supermodel Twiggy due to deceptive advertising practices. Apparently it wasn’t a skin cream that removed those wrinkles after all:

“…since Olay admits to “minor retouching” around Twiggy’s eyelid area (essentially wiping out any indication of undereye darkness, bags, and fine lines), we know the cream is not really her secret. Instead it’s a skilled computer technician, which is something you just can’t bottle and sell for $23.89. Nor is this “secret” available to most women.

Shocked? Me neither.
