Albeit advantageous to an extent, it comes with significant disadvantages; particularly to vulnerable teenagers who would believe anything a brand promises to deliver, especially if it comes from a "Kardarshian" or any other famous influencer / celebrity, without finding out its authenticity.

The market is swamped with soo many diet pills, detox teas, vitamin supplements promising to deliver that miracle drastic weight loss, quick fix, or flawless skin in no time at extortionate prices. A number of these brands parade their products on various social media platforms; solely to lure these vulnerable groups of people into the misconstrued thinking of coveting a certain form of perfection that is faked, altered or non existent.

In the UK, the NHS have an increasing record number of A&E admissions involving teenagers, experiencing serious health problems as a result of the consumption of these "miracle" working products.
