The singer took to social media to celebrate her body just like it is, proving that she’s definitely learned to love and accept all her ‘flaws.’ More precisely, Demi Lovato gave some much-deserved love to her stretch marks by taking some beautiful closeup pics of her hips.
The way she celebrated the marks was by tracing them with gold glitter!
In the caption, she opened up about recovering from an eating disorder and more, sharing a really inspiring and empowering message for anyone else out there dealing with similar things.
Judging by her followers’ reactions in the comment section, it really seems like she managed to give them hope that things will indeed be better in the end and that recovery really is possible.
‘I used to genuinely believe recovery from an eating disorder was not real. That everybody was faking or relapsing behind closed doors. ‘Surely she throws up just here and there’, ‘she cannot POSSIBLY accept her cellulite’… those were just a few of the things I used to tell myself growing up. I am so grateful I can honestly say for the first time. – my dietitian looked at me and said ‘This is what an eating disorder recovery looks like.’
She went on to write: ‘In honor of my gratitude for the place I am in today, this was a shoot I did by myself in quarantine this summer since I wanted to celebrate my stretch marks and started wearing actual glitter paint on my stretch marks to celebrate my body and it’s features. My stretch marks are not going away so might as well throw a lil’ glitter on ’em amiright? 😝✨.’
Demi made sure to remind people once again that recovery is possible and encouraged them to be kind to themselves, especially after such a difficult year!
