Finally, a body-positive magazine with a No Photoshop policy.
Magazines have been slow to adapt to the changing media landscape and the co-founders of a new online magazine became so disillusioned with “how most of them fail to reflect our lives or our philosophies as women,” they started their own.
Verily’s aim is to represent women in an authentic way, including no retouching or digitally altering of images. Ever.
This is huge considering that 100 percent of the images you see in magazines and in most beauty ads are retouched.
Yes, every single image.
“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,” the co-founders say.
“Verily is a magazine less about who you should be, and more of who you are.”
