Women Are Flaunting Cellulite On Instagram For An Empowering Reason.
Often times we try to hide our little "so called" imperfections when we're out in public or in front of the cameras. But at the end of the day, they're still there and very much a part of us. But while some people are obsessing over how they can get rid of their blemishes, crow's feet, wrinkles, extra body fat, or cellulite, others are actually showing them off. Just ask one body positive activist who is trying to get women to not just accept the cellulite in their bodies but actually be proud of it.
This is Kenzie Brenna and she's behind the hashtag #CelluliteSaturday.
The 26-year-old Canadian's goal is to create a body positive campaign that will make cellulite seem normal. That way, women who have it won't be embarrassed to show it to the world.
Brenna isn't just an activist. She's actually just like you.
She once suffered from body dysmorphic disorder, a condition in which a person becomes obsessed with imaginary defects in their physical appearance.
But a few months ago, the Canadian actress and writer took a stand for herself and women everywhere.
She started posting photos in which she shows different parts of her body where cellulite is prominent. It's not a self-hating thing to do. She calls it therapy for her recovery from her disorder.
She even posted a split-screen photo of the lie often seen in magazines.
One side shows Brenna for the natural and lovely woman that she is. On the other side is a Photoshopped version of herself with the cellulite seemingly gone.
Nobody's perfect. No matter how hard you work on your body.
Brenna eats a balanced diet and goes to the gym five days a week and she still has cellulite.
