The Six Fix: Celebrities Who Inspire Us to Love Our Flaws



It's quite inevitable for a girl to feel extremely conscious and insecure about her body—and that doesn't exclude celebrities. Because just like us, they have imperfections they worry about, too. And considering how social media can pressure us to look Insta-perfect all the time, they get even more scrutiny from people they don't even know. Instead of being disheartened by bashers, however, some of them hold their heads up high and embrace their flaws more.

If you need a confidence boost and some inspiration to embrace your body—imperfections and all—check out these amazing ladies who'd absolutely change the way you think about your flaws and inspire you to love every inch of the skin you're in!

1. Jasmine Curtis-Smith

2. Andi Manzano-Reyes

In a world where every post is carefully edited, Andi bravely chose to go unfiltered. With this snapshot, she shows the world how important embracing our bodies and how beautiful it is even without all the digital enhancement. 


To be honest, I was going through great lengths to edit this photo to make for a trimmer me (believe me I tried hah) but then my husband told me to embrace my reality and that there's nothing to be ashamed about. I love him for always making me feel like I'm the most beautiful person in the world in spite of my flaws. It also reminded me that there is no perfect person or image I or we have to be. What people see in magazines and in the media is not what beauty is supposed to be. You have No one to please. No approvals needed. Just embrace who you are. Be you... because God made You perfect. You are His masterpiece. No ad, no article, no likes, or shares, nobody can tell you otherwise. Celebrate your stretch marks, your cellulite, your love handles, your round face, the long list never ends... The physical fades but it's whats within that will radiate and shine even with wrinkles and lines. Remember you are beautiful because you are fearfully and wonderfully made by Him ??

3. Ina Raymundo

An Instagram user called the actress' underarms "maitim," but instead of getting affected, her only response was, "Sige nga, patingin nga ng mga kili-kili niyo. Hiyang-hiya naman ako."  The actress didn't let the haters stop her from feeling confident about her body, and even posted another photo to flaunt her stretch marks. We can't help but applaud her for this, so girls, take notes!

4. Jessie J

After posting a photo that showcased her cellulite for all the world to see, there's no doubt that Jessie J is unlike any other celebrity. Through this, she has empowered her fans and thousands of other ladies as she proves that all of us can always choose to be confident with our bodies—cellulite be damned!

5. Emma Roberts

Not everyone is #blessedt in the chest department, and the 26-year-old actress has learned to accept that and embrace her body as it is. In her interview with Seventeen, the star shares, "Sexy when I was younger always meant boobs, and I've never had boobs in my life, so I always felt that sexy was out of the question for me. I used to really want to be that kind of voluptuous girl, and I've just kind of embraced that I'm not."

6. Jennifer Lawrence

It's quite dumbfounding to think that someone as gorgeous as JLaw would still get body shamed and be labeled as "fat." To those who contiuously sum up others based on their weight, she says: "Why is humiliating people funny? I think it should be illegal to call somebody ‘fat’ on TV. If we’re regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect that it has on our younger generation, then why aren’t we regulating things like calling people ‘fat'?" Preach, girl!


Don't you just wish more girls would love their bodies and embrace it just like these celebs do? Here's to dropping the pressure to be perfect and loving our own skin just the way it is!
