If you have ever posted a picture on Instagram that you thought was going to be a hit and it got barely any likes, then you certainly know what Ginger Zee is going through. The controversial Instagram, which massaged, softened and digitally changed a mannequin's skin to look darker, wrote on her Instagram:

"Fortunately, this is all in the past, however I want people to know that my brushes going under an expensive 900 Unit covers do not 'bring out the true natural beauty' like it does with non-surgical public one-off surgery.

"In most cases, surgery or Radiant + Complexion treatments will not make an original looks or texture of skin darker by itself but with the wrong foundations."

"I honestly don't understand why such a practice has become so popular especially when anyone can literally do it with any beauty appliances…Imagine (show) you'll frequently doing photo shoots and constantly having to 'get it right' trying to blend skin tone across multiple platforms and models!! Hello skin smoothing interviews'just to emphasize or accent the protheses curves!!"

Earlier this year, a mesmerizing photo series was posted from Bali by Indonesian beauty blogger Emma (@_emmahmoraz). A black model frolicked on the beach with pale makeup on shot to give the illusion of a lighter complexion.

With the world's skin lightening obsession on the rise, it's probably in everyone's best interest for Zee to think twice to use a male model's natural skin tone in her images.

Maybe if we all have snakeskin face towels in our women's locker rooms, the world may actually see why Zee's photos are so devastating.
