The definition of beauty in today’s society is gradually strict. Once there is a deviation from the standard of universal beauty, the negative emotions of anxiety and inferiority will linger in the heart, affecting normal social and academics. So the author decided to discuss the factors that lead to the appearance and body anxiety of teenagers, and assume it as three aspects: the influence of online celebrities on the Internet, the popular single aesthetics, and the evaluation of the people around them. The researchers investigated the causes of anxiety among adolescents and their aesthetic concepts through the online questionnaire method. The research results show that the appearance anxiety of adolescents is common, and the parts that men and women value are different, which is in line with the definition standard of universal beauty for men and women’s aesthetic concepts. The main factor in anxiety is the evaluation of people around you. The examples on the Internet are relatively extreme, and most teenagers will not pursue imitation. However, celebrities and Internet celebrities lead the aesthetic trend and constantly change the public’s definition of beauty, and young people and the people around them are easily influenced by the value of universal beauty in this environment, which causes appearance and body anxiety.
