New app makes users look skinnier

By Corinne Hautala. CREATED Apr 7, 2014

There's a new app to help shed excess weight with the simple click of a button.

SkinneePix costs $0.99.

"SkinneePix makes your photos look good and helps you feel good. It’s not complicated. No one needs to know. It’s our little secret," the app's description reads.

The app is receiving criticism for adding to women's body image anxiety.

Despite criticism, the app's co-founder Susan Green believes it is helping women to reach their weight loss goals.

"We're hearing now people are using it to motivate themselves to get healthy, Green told HuffPost Women.  “That's how I'm using that now, because I can see something that's attainable.”
