Imagine scrolling through the gram to finally end up feeling at ease in your own skin. The body positivity movement is, by far, the most radically beautiful thing on social media. While there is no dearth of photoshopped images portraying perfect bodies and impeccable skin, thankfully, there is a steady rise of representation for all skin types, body sizes, and genders.
A while ago, I discovered the art of curating my social media feed to inspire and empower myself: to be in charge of what I see and react to on the internet. Now, every time I pick up my phone, it brings me joy to see powerful men and women embracing themselves as they are, and that is the energy I think we need more of.
Stretch marks, blemishes, scars, acne: Everything that scares and embarrasses us is everything that these body positivity influencers welcome and accept with compassion. If you have suffered the dark side of social media, be sure to catch some light and love that exude in abundance on the pages of these influencers.
