In this world where looking your best is the need indeed, people like Jacqui Ryland take drastic steps for achieving the goal. She might receive thousands dollars worth of gifts from her admirers all over the world, but your life turns into a dangerous ball of a mess when self-obsession reaches the next level of crazy.
For Jacqui, attaining perfect body is about injecting herself with Human Growth Hormone every single day. She loves the glowy difference it brings about in herself, but the side effects of HGH is an inevitable end in hospital bed sooner rather than later.

HGH can lead to some serious health issues like diabetes and create cancerous tumors.
"Every morning I inject growth hormone. The side effects mean your heart can grow, which is dangerous. It makes your skin look better, makes you look younger and your nails and hairs grow and shed fat."
"The side effects are that your heart can grow… and if you have a cancerous cell in your body you are going to multiply that cell at a really quick rate. Is it addictive? Yes, because the results you get are addictive."
"If I stop taking it, after the two weeks when it's leaving your body, you put weight on easier; you feel more tired, and you feel less positive and more depressed."
"I have been told it is crazy and a massive risk. But if someone tells me not to do something, nine out of ten times I will go and do it. It's an addiction. I don't think I'll ever stop. Until I'm dead. Then I've got no choice."
But damn it! This false sense of perfect body and taking such lethal steps for it is simply dangerous.
