It Finally Exists: A Women’s Magazine With No Photoshop!
Verily Magazine’s no photoshop policy proves the power of authentic beauty. It is no secret that the majority of the fashion industry utilizes extensive photoshop techniques in their advertising and magazines.

Verily magazine has taken on the big task of creating a magazine aimed at women that doesn’t feature the narrow view of women that most fashion and lifestyle magazines deliver. Often times the portrayal of women seen in magazines can have a negative impact on readers as the images do not reflect the true features of women and beg to create the so-called “ideal appearance.” Most images feature loads of makeup, air brushing and photoshop that turns natural beauty into something that could never be achieved without such manipulation. This makes many women who read these magazines feel bad about themselves and get them wishing they could change aspects of their appearance to match what is being sold as “ideal.”

Verily’s mandate around the subject states: “Whereas other magazines artificially alter images in Photoshop to achieve the so-called ideal body type or leave a maximum of three wrinkles, Verily never alters the body or face structure of the Verily models.”
