My friend need some serious help.

My friend Chantelle hs problems with self image.
I recognize that everyone does, but she has it majorly.
On days when she's not at school, she spends most of her time infront of the mirror.
During her time infront of the mirror she re-applies her makeup multiple times, washes her face multiple times, and just stares at herself and takes of mental note of every little problem.

Example: There's a pimple on the side of my nose, and one in my hairline that i cover up with my hair, my eyebrows are un-even. There's a wrinkle in my shirt and my eyeliner doesn't look EXACTLY like it did when I put it on two minutes ago.
And then she won't want to do anything for the rest of the day, because she claims that she's not pretty enough to go out, when she's actually the PRETTIEST person i know.

If she's not wearing at least ONE designer peice of clothing, she will not leave the house because she claims that she looks like crap.

If she finds one problem wrong with herself, wether it's an unnoticable pimple on her face, or one stray eyebrow hair, she completely freaks out. She'll either start crying, or run around looking for a mirror.

Whenever she talks to people, she often covers her face, because she thinks that she is the ugliest person in the world, when in reality she is the prettiest and skinniest girl in our class and all of the girls hate her because all of the guys want her.

She's always going to the mall and stealing make-up and cleaning products because her parents won't give her money for it, or she'll just steal the money from her parents, and then ask for more money from them. And when they don't give her money, she claims that: They want her to be ugly, so they won't give her the money for make-up; when in reality, they don't have the money to give her, because she steals it all.

And by now you might be saying, "She doesn't have a mental dissorder, she's just a shallow stuck up b*tch!" Well, she's not. She REALLY wants to fix this problem. But at the same time, she's afraid that if she does fix it, she'll be "ugly".

I have NO FREAKING CLUE how she gets away with thinking that she's ugly.
All I know is that, this whole "problem" is ruining her relationships with friends, and is damaging her family.
