In case you missed my Instagram post, I wanted to post this here because I think it's really important:

I’ve been getting more comfortable in my own skin.

After being bullied as a kid and having bad acne when I was young, I was deeply insecure for years. I’d put on make-up just to go to the mailbox.

But ever since the pandemic started, I’ve been forgoing make-up and boosting my confidence. So here I am — no make-up, no filter, and with messy hair in the sunlight.

And I’m proud of that for once in my life. Love yourself, always. You are unique and should take pride in that. ❤️ 💜 #selfconfidence #loveyourself #beyourself

Thanks for reading!
