It's always refreshing when social media personalities remind us to love our bodies as they are, despite their so-called flaws.

The 30-year-old shared the post to her Instagram as a part of her body-positive Swimsuits for All campaign shoot.

"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?
