Stacey Solomon Poses For Bikini Photos To Show Un-Airbrushed Body
Stacey Solomon has posted bikini pics of herself, to tackle the issue of Photoshopped images, in an effort to show what bodies really look like.
The former X-Factor winner and TV presenter got her kit off in before and after photos, to highlight the digital manipulation used by celebrities, in order to highlight how dangerous body morphing images can be.
‘Children are being robbed of their childhood because they’re under pressure to look a certain way,’ she told Celebrity Secrets magazine in an interview featuring a shoot of her in her swimwear with and without image trickery.
A series of photos show the difference Photoshop can make on people’s appearances and Stacey sees a danger facing young people growing up with manipulated images.
She told the publication:
Even if you ask 100 teenagers if they think a picture has been edited, and they all say ‘yes’, they’ll still want to look like that – as that’s what they think ‘pretty’ is.
And that’s what we’ve got to eradicate.
The images show not only how moles can be removed, along with under eye bags and how waists can be trimmed, but also how the shape of bodies and faces can be altered, leaving unrealistic expectations of beauty, while distorting perceptions of ‘beauty’ is.
Stacey wrote on Instagram:
I’m so proud of the interview and shoot I did with @celebritysecretsmag highlighting how dangerous this kind of body morphing is and why all bodies should all be celebrated, no matter what shape or size!
I look better UN airbrushed in my opinion and love my natural lumps and bumps!
Stacey’s stand against Photoshop trickery comes after she vented her frustration at a trip to a beauty salon, where a beauty therapist told her ‘you should start having Botox and fillers now 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 well-being.
We’re with you, Stacey.
