When you’re Demi Lovato, you do not disguise your stretch marks, you allow them to shine. Or slightly, sparkle.
The 28-year-old pop star, a longtime advocate of physique positivity and acceptance, who battled bulimia for years and sought therapy for it, shared photographs of her stretch marks highlighted with gold glitter on Instagram over the Christmas vacation.
“I used to genuinely imagine restoration from an consuming dysfunction wasn’t actual,” she wrote. “That everybody was faking or secretly relapsing behind closed doorways. ‘Certainly she throws up right here and there,’ ‘she will be able to’t POSSIBLY settle for her cellulite’… these we’re only a few of the issues that I used to inform myself rising up.”
She continued, “I am so grateful that I can actually say for the primary time in my life – my dietitian checked out me and mentioned ‘That is what consuming dysfunction restoration seems like.’ In honor of my gratitude for the place I am in right this moment, this was a lil shoot I did on my own in quarantine this summer time once I wished to rejoice my stretch marks as an alternative of being ashamed of them.”
