Singer Stacey Solomon has taken to Instagram to share the shocking extent to which airbrushing can alter someone’s appearance.
The 28-year-old shared a side-by-side comparison of an unedited bikini picture and an airbrushed one in this week’s Celebrity Secrets Magazine, which is distributed alongside OK! Magazine.
“This is how scary airbrushing can be. When you’re looking at someone’s post or in a magazine or poster you might not be looking at real-life images,” she writes.
“I’m so proud of the interview and shoot I did with Celebrity Secrets Magazine highlighting how dangerous this kind of body morphing is and why all bodies should I’ll be celebrated no matter what shape or size!
“I look better un-airbrushed in my opinion and love my natural lumps and bumps!
“Love yourself because you’re perfect.”
This is not the first time this week that Stacey has hit back at the unattainable beauty standards pushed on celebs.
She says that her “faith in humanity” was dented when a beautician suggested that she should have botox “before it’s too late.”
“How on Earth are young girls supposed to be confident and happy in their own skin when it’s being fed to them (in professional health and wellness clinics) that they need to prevent ageing using botox and fillers before it’s too late (at the ripe old age of 28!) my goodness.
“I felt 10 years older walking out than I did walking in just because of that comment.
“I believe that people should do whatever makes them happy, if you want fillers and botox there’s nothing wrong with that, but I don’t agree with it being pushed down your throat by people in that industry scaremongering and making the perfectly natural ageing process feel like a disease.
“Anyone out there if you fancy my penny’s worth – the best anti-ageing you can do is look after your health and wellbeing.”
