ASA bans Instagram influencers’ tanning ads for using “misleading” filters

Iona Relf, owner of Salon U in Walmer, commented: “I’m so pleased to hear this. I created a survey for my clientele a while back about filters and I had interesting feedback. Some said ‘if people want to use filters then they should feel free to do so’, which I agree with, but I also had my thoughts confirmed when others admitted that they use filters on almost all their photos now. These clients said that they did so because when the see their photos without filters they feel ugly. I hope this is the start of more natural photos, giving women confidence in their own skin.”
