Some people call cellulite, stretch marks, acne, wrinkles, hair, or other details on the body of women ‘imperfections’, but the truth is that these are elements that appear naturally and spontaneously, and of course, they do not make you look less pretty.
This is known by several celebrities, who decided to put aside the stereotypes of beauty to accept and love their body as it is, regardless of the size of their waist or the years they have been wearing. Here we show you some of them, to inspire you with their stories.
# 1 Demi Lovato
The actress and singer has spoken publicly about how difficult it was for her to live with bulimia. Now that you’ve overcome this eating disorder, you frequently share how much you love and accept your stretch marks, cellulite, freckles, and more.

# 4 Lady Gaga
The singer always carries a message of acceptance and self-love to her fans, so it is not surprising that she applies it to herself.

I’m proud of my body, and you should be proud of yours too. (…) I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to please anyone or anything to be successful.”
# 5 Ashley Graham
The model is one of the most recognized representatives of the body positive movement, as she has posed for the most important fashion brands.

However, she knows that she is very pretty just the way she is and always treats her body with affection.
# 6 Sarah Hyland
Few people know about the Modern Family actress because she lives with endometriosis and kidney dysplasia, which is why she has undergone various surgeries throughout her life.
