Modecampagnes en fotoshoots die in tijdschriften te zien zijn, zijn altijd zodanig bewerkt dat ze weinig meer te doen hebben met de realiteit. Geen putje of deukje is te zien. Om hier tegenin te gaan, is op Instagram een nieuwe hashtag opgedoken: #cellulitesaturday welteverstaan.

Instagrammer Kenzie Brenna is de bedenker van de hashtag en startte de trend door foto’s van haar cellulites op Instagram te delen. Ze legt uit: “cellulite isn’t an indication of health, and it isn’t an indication of self-worth,” vertelt ze. “I hope that when people click on the hashtag, they recognize cellulite is a part of our bodies that can be totally acceptable and we don’t have to get rid of it. This is just another aspect of having a physical body.”
Maar dat is niet het enige, want op haar Instagram account deelt de blondine nog veel meer foto’s, waarmee ze het perfecte beeld wat veel mensen op social media laten zien, in een klap om zeep helpt. Haar gehele account lijkt in het teken te staan van het omarmen van je imperfecties. Zo is ze niet bang om een klein vetrolletje te laten zien, of haar gezicht zonder make-up op internet te slingeren. Love it!
De dappere zet van deze dame is niet onopgemerkt gebleven, want meerdere Instagrammers volgden haar voorbeeld al. En wij hopen dat er met haar, nog veel meer dames de stap durven te nemen. Want laten we wel wezen: een putje of deukje hier en daar is menselijk en er is helemaal niets mis mee!

IF YOU TRY TO SELL ME YOUR CELLULITE TREATMENT, I DON'T WANT IT. ? Now thats out of the way… This girl goes to the gym 4-5x a week. She weightlifts, includes cardio and plyometrics, she eats a personal well balanced diet and has for the last year. For those of you who comment and tell me "if you only lost ten pounds your cellulite would go away," without having researched my page to see I have lost over 50 pounds and yes my cellulite appear has reduced but it has not "gone away." Here are the stats again: 93% of women have cellulite. AND- You have a 90% chance of developing cellulite if you're a woman. ??If those stats don't make you feel at home and normal in your body I don't know what will ?? We have made it a "COSMETIC issue" not an indication of health. This is straight from the doc's mouth, not mine. It has to do with a combination of genetics and hormones. Which you can really only fuck with to a certain extent. THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE CELLULITE IS TO REMOVE FAT. Can you remove fat through a topical cream? By massaging it? By drinking green tea? By rubbing coconut oil on yourself? That's not how it works. Stop this misinformation right now. ?Cellulite is normal. And the beauty industry capitalizes on saying we need it removed.? Again, I'm not going to shame a woman for trying to work to get rid of hers I completely understand and respect the decision to do so. This message isn't for her. This message is for women who crave acceptance, self love and want appreciation for their bodies as they exist right now. Also sorry for the dbl watermark, I saw some people using my photos and cropped out my name from them ? how nice! #cellulitesaturday #mermaidthighs #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositivity #nobodyshame #lovetheskinyourein #thisiswhatfitlookslike

Dear reader ? I hope you celebrate your body today. Especially the part that you haven't been saying nice things to all these years. Your body needs you. Love, Me ?? Another edition of #cellulitesaturday. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ I can't truthfully say I love this part of my body yet, but I'm getting farther away from hating it. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Cellulite shouldn't be ruining your life or mine. Cellulite is little itty bitty fat cells that accumulate in places where your cute body says "yup, need some more of that over here!" It isn't a medical condition. It is a ?cosmetic? personal issue that women have with themselves due to the overwhelming pressure our beauty culture has placed on having thin smooth young looking skin. What about all the gals that don't have thin smooth young looking skin? What if they don't fit in that standard? Fuck that. Rock yo body, in all its cuteness that it is. ❤️???? #everyBODYisbeautiful #daretobedifferent #selflovejourney

? HAPPY SATURDAY MORNING ☀️ It's also #cellulitesaturday, I realize I didn't post one last week. But I sorta wanna try to make it a thing. The word cellulite still makes me cringe. It still makes me wanna run and hide and not come out and I have somehow lipsuctioned it out of me or try to dry brush it into the dark places of the universe. That's really not the fucking case. The only way to get rid of cellulite is to lose overall fat. With overall fatloss, your body may lose fat in the areas that you have celluli- AND HERES THE JOOCEY PART, YOUR BODY MAY ALSO ✨NOT✨ LOSE FAT FROM THOSE AREAS.? Because we cannot spot reduce (stop it, we can't, pls don't comment and say you can I'll just delete you misinforming people) you can't pick or choose whether or not you are a person who can reduce your appearance of cellulite. Notice how I said appearance. Appearance because cellulite LITERALLY translates to the appearance of fat cells. And because we will forever have fat cells at some percentage or another, for women (and some men,) you can't really avoid this baby. We all have it to some degree or another. It's not an indication of health or fitness level or self worth. ITS A COSMETIC "ISSUE." It's just a thing our bodies do. It's just a thing our bodies do. It's just a fucking thing our bodies do. It's that simple. And the beauty industry capitalizes on it. Imagine if a unicorn was chopping off its horn because it's culture says so. We would tell that beautiful unicorn that it's bananas for doing something like that. ??? No. Just no. Like I said in my previous cellulite posts, it's difficult for me to accept, but I eat my greens, I drink my water, I foam roll, I'm at the gym 5x a week, I have Epsom salt baths, I've dry brushed, got "cellulite massages", tried creams and considered getting surgery. So don't tell me a way to "fix it." I'm over it ?? #celluliteacceptance #endbodyshame #thisiswhatfitlookslike #boldandbeautiful
