Social media feeds can make Botox and fillers seem as commonplace as getting a haircut. On TikTok alone, the plastic surgery hashtag has 22 billion views.  

Is this newfound acceptance democratising beauty, or making beauty obligatory? And who gets to decide what counts as beautiful? 

This week, we’re binging you stories about our increasingly narrow beauty standards.  

It’s the second episode of Not Natural, a series about our ability to control nature. These stories were produced for the Science Galley’s new exhibition — Not Natural. It’s open now and includes a listening station where you can hear work from our students.    

Featuring stories by Jessica Cheong, Zserhyn Jose, Kel Thai, and Sabine Lynch.
