Some people look in the mirror and think they’re facing a monster. This story covers Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), a curse that’s on the rise thanks to new technologies.

Experts say that by the age of seven we become vulnerable to feelings of discomfort about our appearance. The problem reaches a head in adolescence.
