Emily Skye Says She's Chill with Having Loose, Wrinkled Skin On Her Abs

Loose skin is a totally normal effect of pregnancy, and Emily Skye is treating it as such. In a recent Instagram, the influencer expressed that she's totally cool with having wrinkly skin on her abs. 

"The wrinkly skin might be there forever but who cares!!" she captioned the selfie of her flexing. "Nobody's perfect and there's no point worrying about things you can't change. I just focus on being fit and healthy and being the best I can be! And hey I can definitely see some abs peeping through the wrinkles!"

Many commenters showed Skye love for posting the photo, writing messages like "Thank you for being real," and "Thank you for sharing this, I get so embarrassed of mine." (Next up: This Swedish Influencer Is the Dose of Reality Your Instagram Feed Needs)

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The wrinkly skin might be there forever but who cares!! Nobody’s perfect and there’s no point worrying about things you can’t change. I just focus on being fit and healthy and being the best I can be! And hey I can definitely see some abs peeping through the wrinkles! Whenever I feel off track with my fitness or I feel like I can’t do something I look at the amazing women in my FIT forum and they’re getting it done! They have many struggles and knock downs but they always try their best and keep going. So if THEY can do it, so can I! My fit fam motivate me and make me want to work hard so I can be my best. . . 7 day trial of my FIT APP! - Link in bio! . . #1yearpostpartum #fitfam #fitmum #fitmom #mumtum #mombelly

Skye gave birth a little over a year ago, and she's kept it real both during her pregnancy and after. Right after giving birth, she admitted she was frustrated with her slow post-baby body progress and could "barely recognize" her body. She's also opened up to her followers about her experience with the post-baby blues.

Last month, she posted an Instagram about dealing with bloating, joking that she looked pregnant again. "It's crazy how different your body can look from one day to another! Some days I'm really lean with visible abs, no bloating or fluid retention and other days I can barely see my abs and my belly is blown up like a balloon!" she wrote in the post. 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I’m pregnant again! Just joking... it’s just the dreaded belly bloat making it’s appearance again! It makes me feel like I’m a few months preggas again! Haha! It’s crazy how different your body can look from one day to another! Some days I’m really lean with visible abs, no bloating or fluid retention and other days I can barely see my abs and my belly is blown up like a balloon! I know I’ve been posting pics like this one for quite a few years now but I still think it’s important to show these moments because NOBODY is perfect! . I like to share pics where I’m not bloated, in good lighting and posed etc. so I feel I owe it to you to post pics like this one as well. Also, I’d like to add that both are “real life”. Just as this pic is “real” so are my posed pics in good light WITHOUT bloat! . Please don’t be hard on yourself OR compare yourself to anyone. Self love is hard but so important. . . #emilyskye #bloated #notpregnant #fitfam #selflove #realtalk

Skye is nothing if not consistent in doling out real talk. Along with writing about moments of body acceptance like her "wrinkly skin" pic, she also shares moments of frustration, and we're obsessed with all of it.
