As part of their Love Your Selfie body image series, the anchors of the popular NBC morning talk show TODAY under went a photoshop experiment.

Working with the editor-in-chief for Cosmopolitan Magazine Joanna Coles, hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales all took a few photos and let photographers remove their flaws in order to create a computer perfected image. Meant to show the extremes of photoshopping, the images show just how much was changed: from whitened teeth, enlarged eyes, brighter lips, bigger busts and adding hair, just to name a few.

Designed with the goal of tackling how people–especially young girls–receive a distorted image of how they're supposed to look, the Love Your Selfie series appears to have been successful in starting a dialogue.
