When the BeReal time arrives, take your time to set the scene, style yourself, and ensure everything is perfect before clicking that photo. Remember, it's not always necessary to rush and post within the two-minute window.

In reality, nobody really cares about how you look in a post, and hardly anyone bothers to check or see the retakes in your uploads. So, there's no need to be self-conscious about it.


Just be real, be true to yourself, and let your authentic self shine through. Remember, it's okay if a photo doesn't turn out as expected, and even if someone takes a screenshot of it, BeReal notifies you.
