Vicky Pattison has shared a truly empowering message with her Instagram followers as she shared a body confidence post.
The 35-year-old ex Geordie Shore star took to the platform yesterday, sharing a carousel of unedited snaps of her body – in a bid to promote body positivity, no matter your shape or size.
It comes after Vicky claimed that there is ‘probably far too many carefully curated glam shots’ online.
Accompanying the post, Vicky wrote: “Social media can often be misleading… After nothing more than a quick scroll through Instagram it can convince you that everyone has the perfect body, no one ever takes a bad picture, everyone’s skin is perfectly smooth and they all have their s*** together…
“I’d like to think I show both sides of the coin on my Instagram… but after a little flick through this morning I realised there were probably far too many carefully curated glam shots and fancy ads- so here is some of my reality- a reality that I am not only not ashamed of, but f***** proud of.
“I am 35, I have wrinkles, cellulite, dimpled skin, tummy rolls, absolutely NO lips compared to everyone else on here it seems 😂🤦🏻♀️ and double chins… I have good angles and bad, I have good days and bad… and none of this makes me any less of a good person or less deserving of self love.’
Vicky went on: ‘Don’t get too hung up on the ‘perfect’ side of social media, don’t let those images effect how you see yourself and your self worth- because behind every single one of those glam shots were a million more like this… That society has tried to tell us are in some way less desirable but if you ask me, there’s far more beauty to be found in the real, in the raw… So be kind to yourself today and everyday for that matter [sic].
