Cellulite is totally normal, and you shouldn't let anyone tell you otherwise.

It's always refreshing when social media personalities remind us to love our bodies as they are, despite their so-called flaws. Recently, plus-size model and style blogger Gabi Gregg gave us all a dose of reality by sharing a video proving that cellulite is totally normal... and that those "perfect" photos you see have probably just been camouflaged using the right lighting.

The 30-year-old shared the post to her Instagram as a part of her body-positive Swimsuits for All campaign shoot. It shows her walking up and down a mirrored runway, creating a sort of optical illusion where you can see her cellulite literally disappear right before your eyes as she walks out of the shadow. Take a look for yourselves.

"Reminder that cellulite is normal and nothing to be ashamed of," she captioned the video, "and also depends on lighting! You can literally see mine 'disappear' as I walk out of a shadow here."

Her simple, yet powerful post proves that the idealism behind the perfect body is utter nonsense. And having something as natural and normal as cellulite is the last thing you should be worrying about. As long as you are conscious about your health and live an active lifestyle, your body's so-called flaws are things to be embraced, not shunned-because if at the end of the day if you don't #LoveMyShape, then who will?

Hi, my name is Kate and I would like to share my story. A few years ago, my body was full of cellulite. I used to be disgusted at how much cellulite I had. But, with patience and determination (and a lot of research!), I managed to almost eliminate it. All it took, was the right exercise program and a way to manipulate estrogen metabolism.

I am not a believer in products for cellulite. After I started to train my butt, my butt got bigger but my thighs started to have cellulite on. I tried many ways, the best way is the 3 step system workout my trainer recommend (he is often featured by Men's Health, Women's Health, Men's Fitness, Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar), in case you'd like to know, here is the link: https://bit.ly/2tq9fOP
