Little Mix revealed they feel self conscious about their looks due to social media, which has caused an "obsession with looking perfect"

We all love checking out what our favourite celebs are up to by scrolling through Instagram and Twitter, but according to Jade, Perrie, Jesy and Leigh Anne, the ability to whack a filter over everything is causing a few problems.

In an interview for Hunger Magazine, the girls discussed everything from their X Factor days to the constant relationship rumours.

The 'Black Magic' singers also spoke up about the huge pressure they feel to look a certain way. Leigh Anne said that the girls have been put on a pedestal for absolutely everyone to judge their looks, and this had made them more self conscious. She claimed that: "social media has made everyone has an obsession with looking perfect."

What's so great about the girls is they buck this "perfect" trend thanks to their down to earth style, they've never been afraid to poke fun at themselves or pull a funny face for the camera.

But sometimes it's out of their control, Jade admitted she's had her self-esteem knocked before, saying: "I remember once a magazine Photoshopped my nose and I saw it and started crying."

"We're not here to represent perfection, because none of us are perfect", Jesy added. The singer even posted a no-makeup selfie recently, proving she's a huge believer in embracing your natural looks.

Perrie was on hand to deliver a dose of girl power attitude, encouraging everyone to: "Embrace your individuality! Everyone now is imitating everyone else before they've even figured themselves out."

And in classic Little Mix style, Jesy revealed her own way of dealing with the pressure, saying: "I'm all about chilling in my pyjamas with no make up on" and gorging on junk food. Yep, sounds like a great plan to us!
