It is the most dangerous app in terms of influence.
Earlier this year, the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK asked social media influencers not to use filters in social media ads that exaggerate the impact of the ad.
Makeup artist and model Sasha Paleri started this campaign in July 2020. He had said that the purpose of this campaign is that people should promote their real skin on Instagram and not mislead other people by promoting fake skin.
