Celebrities posting images which aren't airbrushed, photoshopped or edited in any way is a rarity, but one singer is now taking a stand against body-shaming once and for all. 

27-year-old singer and actress Demi Lovato has had her struggles when it comes to loving her body, but now she has conquered her 'biggest fear' by revealing an unedited bikini photo with cellulite included.

"I'm just literally soooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited—and I hate that I did that but it's the truth) so that others think I'm THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it's just not me," she wrote in a lengthy caption.

"This is what I got," she said of her motivations to share the photo. "I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else's standards."

"Guess what, it’s CELLULITE!!! So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day," the star continued.

"It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit."

Lovato is guest-starring in the final series of Will and Grace, which marks her long-awaited return to the screen after suffering from a drug overdose last year and almost losing her life.

The incident was heavily publicised and saw the singer take a break from social media while she attended a rehabilitation facility for addiction. The Confident singer concluded the post by teasing new music;

"Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio. I’m working on an anthem. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too."

Pregnant reality star Marnie Simpson has opened up about her "major anxiety" surrounding cellulite,

The 27-year-old ex-Geordie Shore star has documented her "daunting" pregnancy journey with her 3.5 million social media followers, and got candid about the tough changes which her body has faced.

Admitting she felt "uncomfortable" about her stretch marks, the mum-to-be poses frequently in front of mirrors to show off her burgeoning baby bump.

Marnie said that the changes to her gorgeous physique have been "challenging" to experience.

In a long Instagram post, she wrote: "Can't believe I'm almost there, pregnancy has been a experience. Watching my body change has been challenging to say the least.

"Not going to lie, I've started to develop some stretch marks and water retention leaving me with a hell more cellulite than usual which is daunting, but I know it's going to be so worth it regardless when I see my baby boy."

The reality star was honest about her "major anxiety" over giving birth and facing motherhood for the first time, but she wants to keep "social media real" for her fans.

"No pregnancy is perfect, I've felt insecure, tired, hormonal, and overall c**p but social media only sees the ups, never the downs! Which is frustrating but I wanna keep it real for all the other mammas out there!

"I'm also suffering with major anxiety daily about the birth and the aftermath, especially with all my previous bladder trouble I'm just so scared of the unknown," she continued.

"I'm so grateful for all the messages I get daily it literally keeps me going and calms me down to know there is so many of us all feeling the same. We got this girlies."

Body positivity is a key element to loving the skin you are in. 

Oftentimes, despite our best intentions, we can be extremely harsh on ourselves over the most minute cellulite dimple or tummy roll, no matter what size we are. 

From the smallest size zero babe to the curviest Rubenesque creature, it's important to remember to embrace the body you live in, and not get hung up on the little things you perceive to be your flaws. 

 

A post shared by Glitter (@glitterandlazers) on

Plus size activist @glitterandlazers often finds herself at the receiving end of hurtful fat shaming online, but she recently penned an Instagram post sharing why she feels it is important to respect the skin you are in. 

'Carpe freakin diem. It's a tough world. In a society where even the thinnest of thin can find their rolls and focus on their cellulite… how's a big girl supposed to ignore them,' she begins. 

'The fact is, she doesn't. She owns them. She recognizes them as a part of who she is. We need less images that shame these folds, crease and bumps on our body.'

 

A post shared by Glitter (@glitterandlazers) on

'The images that celebrate accepting them as something akin to winning the noble peace prize. What if we just stopped attaching shame to them?' 

'What if we stopped trying to make sure everyone knew they existed. What if we stopped hunching and pinching and squeezing to show it, and our acceptance of it, off.'

'What if instead we just fu***** lived, in whatever shape our body takes to be alive?'

Girl, please take a bow.

It's been a great 12 months for Ashley Graham, who has achieved some major milestones in her modelling career.

However, the model feels that encouraging women to embrace their own bodies is by far the most important thing she's ever achieved. 

Speaking at the Time 100 gala on Tuesday night, the model revealed the proudest moment of her career.

'When I took a photo of my cellulite and posted it on Instagram,' she said, explaining how it felt to unashamedly showcase her body.   

'I don't think that other women should be afraid of theirs as well.'

'It's my body, it's my lumps and bumps. I'm into it, my husband doesn't care, and neither should the world,' she finished. 

'I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I'm in,' she captioned the post at the time.

'And I'm not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn't be either.'

Hear, hear Ashley!

Among the flurry of thinly-veiled sexist remarks Piers Morgan made after seeing an un-airbrushed photo of a bikini-clad Kim Kardashian this week, he did utter one sentence which is worth remembering.

In reference to cellulite which could be seen on Kim's thighs if you were so inclined to search for it, Piers said: "Accept it."

Yes, he dismissed the notion that dimpled thighs should be celebrated, but he did suggest something many of us have been refusing to do when it comes to our litany of perceived 'flaws'.

Accept it, and get over it.

While his intention clearly wasn't to buoy the female population or offer any form of support when it came to issues surrounding body image, he did, albeit inadvertently, remind us that there are – among myriad other things in this life – some things we have to just accept.

And there's a lot to be said for finding the confidence to do just that.

As many women will attest, railing against 'flawed' body parts is draining beyond all measure.

Fixating on 'imperfections' is exhausting.

And attempting to conceal areas of your anatomy that haven't had the photoshop treatment is a surefire way to sap yourself of self-confidence, self-assurance and self-worth.

So maybe Piers, in this instance, is right.

Few of us have reached the celebratory stage of cellulite, but even less have reached the acceptance stage, and desperately attempt to fix, conceal or apologise for its presence.

While his distaste over Kim's unphotoshopped physique was far from subtle and his disregard for his female co-host's praise blatant, the 52-year-old did provide a kernel of advice…whether he realised it or not.

And while he did – following his televised remarks – take to Twitter to hammer home the notion that cellulite is a 'flaw', we'd do well to focus on the brief tip he did mention.

Flaw or not, it is  – as something many women sport – something we need to accept, because hey, for most of us it's here to stay.

Yes, the nugget of advice was fleeting. Yes, it was bookended by other remarks which suggest Piers needs a lesson or two in diplomacy. And yes it did remind us that when it comes to certain matters, Piers is far from an oracle.

But just like Kim's cellulite, if you were inclined to search for it, it was actually there.

Things like cellulite, stretch marks and so-called imperfections aren't often the first thing we see when we open a magazine.

However, that doesn't mean that models don't have these socially constructed flaws, it just means that they haven't chosen to showcase them in the pages of a fashion spread or in that perfectly lit Instagram bikini photo.

One model who is proud to show off her figure, cellulite be damned, is Charli Howard, who has shown off her dimples in a new post to promote her #AllWomanProject, which encourages women to embrace themselves.  

 

A post shared by Charli Howard (@charlihoward) on

"They, say do something each day that scares you, so re-posting this is mine for the day. Despite the fact I speed walk everywhere, squat, run and occasionally do @pure_barre, I'm still left with cellulite," she captioned the intimate image. 

"I went to an all-girls' boarding school and really used to envy the girls in my class who seemingly had none, and whose bodies looked, to me, nothing less than perfect." 

"Whenever I opened magazines, the models and celebrities I saw didn't have cellulite either – and if they did, they were shamed in the tabloids because of it, or knocked off their perch by nasty journalists who probably have it themselves. (Note: fuck you.)"

 

A post shared by @curvy.be on

"As a result, I felt like my cellulite was shameful, or an oddity. It wasn't until I got older and saw other women's bodies that I realised HOW BLOODY NATURAL IT IS.  It's nothing to be ashamed of. "

"Your boyfriend isn't gonna care if you have it, and if he does, dump him for his mate. Just kidding (or am I?)."

"Don't get me wrong – my cellulite isn't my favourite part of my body, nor is it something I shout from the rooftops about. But I know it doesn't make me any less ugly, or is something I need to feel embarrassed about."

 

A post shared by Charli Howard (@charlihoward) on

"So don't let it make you feel that way, either! In the words of my old pal Kendrick Lamar, 'Show me something natural like ass with some stretch marks."

Charli has previously spoken out about the intense body constraints applied to women in the fashion industry, after she penned an open letter to the industry in 2015 after being told to lose an inch off her hips despite already being slim. 

“My mental and physical health is of more importance than a number on a scale, however much you wish to emphasise this,” she wrote.

Hear, hear!

Last night, Kendrick Lamar dropped the video for his new single, Humble.

And while the song has many qualities, it was praised all across social media for including natural beauty.

Featured in the video was a woman with no make-up, stretch marks, and her hair was flowing au-natural.

The lyrics include lines such as, "I'm so f*cking sick and tired on the Photoshop/ Show me somethin' natural like afro on Richard Pryor. 

"Show me somethin' natural like ass with some stretch marks/ Still will take you down right on your mama's couch in Polo socks, ayy."

Ashley Graham just proved that she couldn't give less f***s about what anyone thinks of her body.

The model slayed on the cover of Sports Illustrated last year, as the first plus-size woman to be featured on the cover. 

Taking to Instagram, the star posted a snap of the cellulite on her upper thigh while she reclined on the beach in a bikini. 

"I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I'm in," she captioned the post. 

"And I'm not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn't be either."

Ashley has been breaking down industry barriers since she arrived on the modelling scene with her body-positive ethos. 

2016 was a pretty great year for the model, who was honoured at the Glamour Women of the Year awards for her work as a body-positive activist. She also got her very own Barbie doll and became the first plus-size woman to grace the cover of Vogue

She has also never been afraid to showcase her size 16 curves in skin-tight dresses and bikinis, and has actively spoken out about being body shamed in the past. 

"When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks, and rolls, I'm accused of promoting obesity. The cycle of body-shaming needs to end. I'm over it," she told Lenny.

Lena Dunham isn't shy when it comes to showcasing her body on her hit TV show Girls.

However, getting the fashion industry to accept a regular sized, cellulite speckled physique isn't always the easiest endeavour.

This week Lena is praising Glamour for showing off her gorgeous, un-retouched body on the cover of it's February edition.

The cover sees Lena posing with her Girls co-stars Jemina Kirke, Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet, decked out in Spice Girls-esque platform booties and rainbow hued ensembles from Marc Jacob's new season. 

Most magazines air brush out any signs of imperfection, from cellulite to moles to less than symmetrical features (Lena was previously caught up in a photoshop drama with Vogue), but February's Glamour cover shows Lena just as she is, cellulite and all. 

Taking to Instagram, Lena praised the fashion tome for their inclusivity and penned a heartfelt caption about her experiences with body shaming. 

"Throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was f**king funny looking. Potbelly, rabbit teeth, knock knees — I could never seem to get it right and it haunted my every move," she wrote.

"I posed as the sassy confident one, secretly horrified and hurt by careless comments and hostility. Let's get something straight: I didn't hate what I looked like — I hated the culture that was telling me to hate it."

"When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of 'Isn't she brave? Isn't it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?'"

 

A photo posted by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

"Then there were the legions of trolls who made high school teasing look like a damned joke with the violent threats they heaped on, the sickening insults that made me ache for teen girls like me who might be reading my comments."

"Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display," she continued.

"Whether you agree with my politics, like my show or connect to what I do, it doesn't matter — my body isn't fair game. No one's is, no matter their size, colour, gender identity, and there's a place for us all in popular culture to be recognised as beautiful."

Lena's cover is getting lots of positive feedback online, with fans rejoicing over the display of body positivity.

However, like all images featuring women who chose to detach themselves from typical beauty norms, the image is also garnering hate from online trolls. 

"Haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses in 2017 because none of us are going to be scared into muumuus by faceless basement dwellers, or cruel blogs, or even our partners and friends," said the star. Hear hear!

It’s been absent from magazine shoots and advertising campaigns for as long as many of us can remember, but it seems cellulite might be about to make an unlikely comeback.

As big brands and famous actresses begin to openly embrace stretchmarks, ordinary women have started sharing images of their cellulite in a bid to promote authentic body confidence.

The “Cellulite Saturday” hashtag was launched by body-positive activist Kenzie Brenna who has been using her Instagram account to prove that “all bodies are good bodies” whether or not they conform with standardised images of beauty.

 

GOOD MORNINGGGG  So, today is #cellulitesaturday  Let's talk stats ok?  These are pretty wild to me.  42% of girls in grade 1-3 want to be thinner  78 fucking % of 17 year old girls are unhappy with their bodies  "Teenage girls are more afraid of gaining weight then getting cancer, losing their parents or nuclear war."  In 2013 the American Medical Association created a policy that really didn't go anywhere, stating that the effects of digitally altering images to impressionable youth were so harmful they cause HEALTH PROBLEMS. I'm not fucking making this shit up people. And did it do anything? Nope. That's why offering up my #realbody, unedited, unfiltered for you to look at, for trolls to rip apart, is important because we have LITERALLY FORGOTTEN WHAT REAL BODIES LOOK LIKE. To quote WIKIPEDIA "cellulite occurs in 80-90% of women, the prevailing medical condition is that it's 'merely the normal condition of many women.'" NORMAL. It's fucking NORMAL. With stats above it drives me so hard so that way my future daughters and sons grow up with more real images of bodies around them than I did. To pray their mental and physical health isn't as affected as mine was. #fuckyeahhhhh #thisbody #celluliteisokay #bodyconfidence #nobodyshame #recovery #bodyimage #bodyimageissues #cellulite

#cellulitesaturday? Can that be a thing? Last time I posted a picture of me TRYING to embrace a part of my body that I have been trying to change forever, 2 things happened. 1. A lot of women and even a few men came forward and said amazinggggg things like "thanks, your dope I need this, I NEED to see more of this, I WANT to see more of this, keep doing what you're doing, yes to normal bodies, etc." the incredible comments kept going, of people sharing their own struggles with trying to accept their bodies, to some women who don't even have cellulite embracing my body – THAT my friends is what this bopo community is all about. 2. Second thing that happened was obviously, the opposite. "Disgusting, gross, cellulite is not healthy, don't encourage kids or women to be unhealthy, nasty, wtf, if you exercise or rub cream or do-this-thing-that-makes-no-sense it will help you get rid of it" that shit went on, in my DM's and in the public comments.  I am not going to sit here and write to you what cellulite is, what it ISN'T or try to bang it into your head that yes, my dear friends "thin + healthy + fit" women also have cellulite, I am going to let you do your own research. You have google and you have can DM if you want to have a CONVERSATION exchanging opinions, facts and resources to help us BRIDGE gaps instead of create bigger ones. I exercise 5x a week, I will murder you at cardio (my cardiovascular system is off the hizzy), I foam roll, I do yoga, I stretch, I eat my greens and I drink over a gallon of water every day. I used to use creams, I used to dry brush, I got massages and considered surgery. SO, don't tell me that I have to be more fit, more healthy, more this, more that, don't tell me to try your cream or that I need to create more blood flow to the places where my cellulite exists. Cause bish, I got chu. Been there done that. My friends, my cellulite is here to stay. And I am fucking okay with that. #bodyacceptance #celluliteyoualrite #namaslay #thisiswhatfitlookslike #embracethesquish #mesosquishy #mermaidthighs #iamallwoman #tbcr

After years of struggling with body dysmorphic disorder, the 26-year-old YouTuber turned to social media in search of women who were embracing their bodies for what they really were.

In a video entitled Love Ur Cute Rolls, Kenzie explains how finding “fearless” women inspired her to start encouraging others to do the same.

#CelluliteSaturday has since taken off with women around the world using it as a mechanism for personal empowerment.

 

Outtake turned favorite shot for #cellulitesaturday hosted by my girl @omgkenzieee . She shared some seriously eye opening statistics this morning about the epidemic that is body image distortion plaguing our young people. I find so much value and passion in my work with young teen girls, teaching them the foundations of self love so that they don't wait until they're 30+ to start discovering how amazing they are with my nonprofit @girlphoria . We can make a difference by creating an open environment to talk about the expectations and the realities.  I don't put bathing suits on and flaunt my body for attention or validation. I do it for the young girls and women trying to find someone that looks like them in a sea of photo shopped bodies.  In short- body diversity. Representation of all the different ways you can look with emphasis that there is no right or wrong way. This is why you'll find me sharing the parts of me that make me uncomfortable. So that I can provide peace for just one girl that she is worthy, cellulite and all.  As always babes, just do you!  Xoxo Allie

Decided to be brave and raw with you guys. No filters, no editing, no cropping out my unmade bed/messy room. This is me. If you don't know, #CelluliteSaturday is a thing started by the beautiful @omgkenzieee. 93% of women have cellulite!! And while that statistic says the majority of women have it, think about how many of us try to get rid of it. The presence of cellulite is largely genetic, and im sorry to tell you that any topical cream is not going to get rid of it. I would be lying if I said i haven't tried to get rid of mine. I carry cellulite largely on my thighs and butt, especially underneath my butt. I workout 5 days a week, I eat a balanced diet, I drink lots of water, I foam roll every now and then. All of these things are said to be able to help reduce the presence of cellulite. But guess what? Who gives a fuck? lol. Honestly though. There are SO many other things that could be and ARE "flawed" about me. And if I have the "flaw" of cellulite than so be it. These "flaws" say nothing about me as a person, or who I am. This "flaw" that the majority of women have is considered a "flaw" because of the standards set by the beauty industry. Go look in a magazine, or any sort of ad with women showing skin and tell me if you see cellulite. The one company I know of that doesn't retouch the models is @aerie. But other than that, smooth skin with no evidence of cellulite is the so-called standard. And as women we constantly see that and then assume there's something wrong with us that needs to be fixed. My point is that if you have cellulite, you are not abnormal!! You aren't "flawed!" YOU aren't CELLULITE. You have cellulite. Just like you have eye boogers, ear wax, body hair, BO, split ends, stretch marks, moles, skin discolorations, acne, etc. These don't define you. Your character, heart, sense of humor, ability to understand. Those things define you and who you are as a person. Give yourself a break ladies. Much love #Cellulite #StretchMarks #LoveYourself

Buckle up, folks; here's another post about my body. Are you over them yet? I am just in a constant state of introspection. Like my body changes daily, so do my thoughts about it. I wasn't originally going to post this photo because I zoom and zoom and zoom on all my imperfections. "My followers don't need to know that I have fat there." But fuck, man, it's not about that. I always named a number. I will be my best me at this weight. This is THE number. Numbers dictated my satisfaction. It's not until recently that I figured out that it's not finding comfortability in your ideal number, it's finding comfortability and confidence in all your body stages and numbers. I had an experience in Rome a week ago where I under-packed my clothing by a day, so I needed to buy a shirt. The pickings are slim in Rome for any type of chunk, so I settled on H&M. Shuffling through clothing racks, I noticed that their biggest sizes were large, with the exception of a few XL's. It brought me back to being in high school, feeling so discouraged and hating my body because stores made it feel like it was abnormal; shameful, even. I looked around and I found no familiar body types. I felt out of place; that my body didn't belong. It's like, years of work and body positivity can be shattered by one experience. I felt like I relapsed on my positive image, going back to self-sabotaging thoughts and actions. Dreading even looking at my shadow in the street because I didn't like the dimensions of it compared to the person I was walking next to. So, here I am. Vacuuming my house in yoga pants and a sports bra. Here I am, walking on the Tampa Bay Trail, letting the world see my cellulite. Here I am, allowing you to zoom in on my vulnerability. I will love this stage, and I will do my fucking best to love the next stage, no matter what number it is. #bodypositive #plussize #effyourbeautystandards #UsingIGAsABlog #cellulitesaturday

No filters, no edits, no sucking in, no nothing. Just smack dab in the middle of some good ol' "flaw" showing sunlight.  Lighting can fully change how someone looks; and odds are, most of the women you know have had their pictures taken in lighting that hides their "flaws" the most, out of either insecurity or shame.  But reality is, the vast majority of women have cellulite, scars or stretch marks on their bodies. It's in our biology, and it's simply how our bodies are meant to grow, slim down and store fat.  Diet industries and public figures have caused such a stir about how our bodies "should" look like, that we've forgotten how to embrace ourselves as we naturally are. We've got our minds so rapped up into looking like one particular body, that we've lost conscious of how impossible it is for two bodies to be exactly alike. Our own damn bodies don't even look the same throughout the lengths of a day, yet we're still falling for a social ideal which simply cannot be met? To love yourself as you are, and move towards a better you, you have learn more about yourself and your body first. It takes time, and it takes strength, and you will have your downfalls, but I promise you, there is no greater feeling than embracing yourself for who you truly are #cellulitesaturday From: @deegetsstronger #HoneyLoves

Ah, cellulite. The bane of a woman's existence. 

OK, we're being super dramatic, but it is just one of those things that seems to never go away, and can totally ruin your confidence when heading to out and about. 

Many women know what cellulite looks like, but not so many ladies know what it actually is. 

When fat cells gather and expand beneath the skin, they push up against the tissue, which in turn makes an uneven appearance, and it's commonly found around the bum, thighs, and hip area, as well as sometimes at the back of your arm.

But fear not, because by eating the right food and drink, your diet can help you on your way to reducing cellulite for good:

Salmon

Salmon is super rich in antioxidants, which breaks down fat cells. The omega-3 fatty acids in this wonderful fish also repairs and strengthens skin tissue and fibres.

Don't know what to cook up with salmon? Why not try a simple French grilled salmon salad. 

  • Mix green beans, sliced shallots and loose lettuce leaves in a bowl.
  • Grill the salmon for eight to ten minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix together Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, olive oil and some salt and pepper.
  • Add a boiled egg and tuck in.

 

Sunflower seeds

According to a heap of nutritionists, sunflower seeds are the new nuts. They're a fab source of vitamin C, potassium, zinc and vitamin B6, which is great for repairing the connective tissue. It also eliminates excess water so bye-bye bloating.

There's loads of ways to add sunflower seeds into our diet but a sunflower and lentil spread is our fave.

  • Grab some lentils, lemon juice, salt & pepper and combine in a blender until smooth.
  • Now add is some sunflower seeds, celery, scallions and parsley.
  • Heat up a pita bread and get cracking.

 

Chilli pepper

These peppers can boost your metabolism for up to three hours after you eat them. This makes your body efficiently burn calories, which aids to weight loss. It also improves your blood flow which will flush out toxins, reducing fat deposits under connective cords.

We love anything a little bit spicy, but you need to try this tangy green chilli.

  • Add oil to a pan and sauté minced beef until no longer pink. Add some chopped onion, one red chilli, paprika and garlic. Stir for one minute.
  • Add one bottle of dark beer (believe us, it's good) and bring to boil. Cook for 15 minutes and then add salsa and beans. Reduce heat and simmer for another 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot with some sourdough toast. Mmmm.

 

Dark berries

Blackberries and blueberries enhance collagen production, creating new skin tissue, which helps us improve our skin's tone and texture. They're also great antioxidants and break down fat.

We love some berries in a dessert, so why not try this recipe.

  • Combine some sugar and white wine in a pan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add some basil and orange zest. Cover and steep for 20 minutes.
  • In a small bowl. combine blackberries, blueberries, peaches and lemon juice. Then add the syrup from the pan and garnish with basil sprigs.
