Ne vous fiez pas aux corps parfaits sur Instagram : cette influenceuse le prouve


0

Depuis sa création, le réseau social Instagram est source de complexes pour de très nombreux internautes. Il faut dire que les comptes comptant le plus d’abonnés sont généralement ceux affichant des clichés de corps superbes.

Top models et autres stars du web affichent régulièrement leurs courbes parfaites, dans des paysages de rêve. Pourtant, comme bien souvent, l’envers du décor est surprenant. Danae Mercer, journaliste et influenceuse, le prouve.

ME / ALSO ME – Because POSING is fun but sitting COMFORTABLY is even better. Now let’s talk DIET CULTURE myths. For years, I thought if I GOT RID of my CELLULITE, I would be happy. It has always been my hang up. So I cut calories. I dropped dress sizes. I shrank. And I waited for that joy, for that feeling of confidence. It didn’t come. Not even at my smallest. None of these things made me feel BETTER about MYSELF. And now, now, years later, I am softer. Squishier. No longer starving. I weigh more. But my heart is lighter. Because here’s the thing I learned the hard way, The thing that diet ads never tell you: BODY IMAGE starts on the inside. It does. Being comfortable with your cellulite? Your stretchmarks? Your bits that wiggle and jiggle and fold here or crease there? All that requires mental work. Internal heavy lifting. Where day by day, month by month, you remind yourself how INCREDIBLE you are. And how your WORTH, your VALUE as a HUMAN, doesn’t CHANGE even when your body does. Nor does anyone else’s. So today, fight against the urge to measure WHO YOU ARE as a HUMAN against whatever is or isn’t happening with your body. Extend the same kindness to other women around you. And allow yourself the softness of a bit of self love. Because you ARE wonderful. You ARE incredible. You ARE WORTHY. Posed or relaxed, sandy or sweaty or sleepy or in any state. You’re loved. x PHOTOS @chiclebelle @gabrielleph #bodyacceptance #selflove #womenirl #cellulite #stretchmarks #normalizenormalbodies #instagramvsreality

Il ne faut pas se fier aux apparences sur Instagram : Danae Mercer le prouve avec des publications réalistes

Danae Mercer compte de nombreux abonnés sur Instagram. La jeune femme, journaliste et influenceuse, vit aux Emirats arabes unis.

Si la jeune femme possède autant de followers, ce n’est pas pour son physique de rêve, mais pour les diktats qu’elle dénonce sur la Toile. Consciente que bien des jeunes femmes s’identifient aux modèles d’Instagram, Danae Mercer a décidé de créer un compte montrant l’envers du décor.

En effet, comme le rappelle la journaliste dans l’une de ses publications : 80 % des femmes ont de la cellulite.

Vouloir coûte que coûte à ressembler aux corps parfaits d’Instagram, revient à poursuivre une illusion. Pour le prouver, Danae Mercer se dévoile toujours de deux manières sur son compte Instagram.

Sur la première photo, la jeune femme prend la pose de manière à apparaître sublime. Pour cela, la journaliste porte une attention particulière aux ombres, à l’éclairage et aux angles de prise de vue. Le résultat : Danae Mercer est sublime et semble présenter un corps parfait.

Sur le second cliché, qu’elle juxtapose au premier, l’influenceuse se montre tel qu’elle est en réalité. Danae Mercer ne cherche plus à prendre une pose avantageuse, préférant poser naturellement.

La comparaison des deux photos démontre parfaitement qu’une photo est souvent loin d’être une réalité, d’autant plus sur Instagram.

Same girl. Same day. SAME WORTH. But we don’t see both these types of photos to the same extent on social media. The online world is filtered. Here, TikTok, Twitter, wherever. It’s a series of magic moments and perfect poses that have been reshot and filtered and adjusted until they embody the ideal. This doesn’t just go for the stream of ‘ideal’ bodies. It goes for incredibly romantic adventures or cool crafts or perfect parenting moments. All of these, all of what’s on display, is so often part of someone else’s HIGHLIGHT REEL. And it’s easy to feel our REAL doesn’t quite measure up. Only your REAL is magnificent. It’s flawed and complex and complicated, but it’s also HUMAN. It’s also authentic and raw and YOU. And that? That is far more incredible than anything social media could ever hope to display. . . #selflove #iweigh #whstrong #instagramvsreality #bodyconfidence #posing #toldya

5 posts Instagram de Danae Mercer qui démontent le mythe du corps parfait sur Instagram

CELLULITE to BUMBUM in three seconds flat? Is it magic? A weird pill? A crazy dose of photoshop? Or, hey, how about just lighting. Lighting matters SO MUCH in fitness photos and videos. Just look at the difference as I move from sun into shade. So what’s the ‘secret’? Direct light, like the sunlight from the window, can be really harsh. It shows all the wobbly wibbly bits and stretchmarks and soft parts of me. Softer light, like the diffused shade from the window, is generally gentler. It smooths and flattens. The same goes for outdoors. It’s why people shoot at sunrise or sunset – the ‘golden hours’. You get those same flattering shades. Today I just wanted to pull back the curtain a bit. Remind you how easy it is to filter and frame things so they look perfect – even without ever using a touch of photoshop. But more than that, far more than that, I want to say how your cellulite, Your stretchmarks, Those are so gosh darn normal. So common. So BEAUTIFUL. And so WORTHY of seeing the sun. ☀️ #cellulite #stretchmarks #socialmediavsreality #normalizenormalbodies #iweigh #whstrong

This is NOT my face – but TikTok makes it easy to pretend otherwise. The app released an update with ENHANCED BEAUTY features. Now it’s possible to instantly change your jaw structure and nose size, to smooth out ALL your pores, to throw on layers of makeup with the click of a button, to make your eyes brighter, teeth wider, everything shinier. In an instant, I can be a whole new me. TikTok has nearly 800 million monthly active users. Around 41% of those are between 16 to 24-years-old. My instinct is a lot are younger — they just don’t have the stats. Yet it’s a platform full of problems. Diet ads are common. So is a distorted weight-loss culture (just look, if you’re feeling strong and are not triggered, at hashtag weightloss). Videos featuring more marginalized communities are taken down. Same goes for anything considered ‘unattractive’. And now there’s this. This UPDATE. I don’t have any problem at all with makeup. Or with cosmetic treatments — when done by an adult, when done out of self love. I don’t really have a problem with much of anything, when it meets those requirements. I do worry about things like this. About what it will do to teens. About what it’s telling to the many, many 13 or 14 year olds that are on the platform. I’m 33. Mostly confident. Pretty media savvy. And playing with this, seeing the ‘perfect me’, it didn’t feel very nice. So what impact is it having on them? I don’t know, honestly. I don’t know. And like many things, I don’t know how to fix it. But at least we can be informed. . #feminist #socialmediavsreality #tiktok

CELLULITE is so DARN COMMON. Around 80 to 90 percent of ALL WOMEN on the PLANET have it. So why do we mostly see pics like the left, and so few like the right? My inbox is full of messages about cellulite. Because many of us, for SO long, thought it was a FLAW. And many of us still do. So we don’t wear the shorts. Or the bikinis. Or we buy swimwear wraps not only when we feel fierce in them, but because sometimes we feel ashamed without them. Or we scrub our skin with lotions and potions And google ‘how to fix orange peel flesh’. But here’s the thing: It’s NOT. A. FLAW. It’s not. Something that sits on over 80% of women isn’t an ‘oops this is a mistake!’ Even if brands and magazines have sold us that line for so long. Cellulite is normal. Healthy. Human. I have it. Most females have it. And if you have it? You don’t need to change a thing. Not one bit. Because your body, my body, our bodies, with all their cute lil dimples and curves and edges, they’re wonderful. Jiggly and wiggly, Raw and human, And perfectly imperfect indeed. x . . #selflove #cellulite #celluliteisnormal #bodyacceptance #normalizenormalbodies #womenirl

INSTA VS REALITY: AT HOME, super causal, ‘look I’m in loungewear’ selfies are everywhere – and a lot of them aren’t nearly as RELAXED as they seem. There’s heaps of POSING to get that great shot. Which is great and cool. I love a good ‘oh so chilled’ selfie snap. BUT I also want to remind you that SOCIAL MEDIA is FILTERED. Don’t compare yourself to strangers on the internet. Because trust me girl, NO ONE walks around with that much of a wedgie. And your at home self is better than any selfie could ever hope to share. Curious about the technique? Here’s what happens. ONE Bottoms high on the leg for that long line. TWO Make a crop top. You see this with HOODIES a lot. Girls tuck it into their bra to make a waist. THREE Hips popped back and back over-arched. FOUR Core tight. FIVE Legs toward mirror, because whatever is closest to camera appears larger/longer. SIX Arm up so abs become longer. SEVEN Exhale and don’t breathe. And there you go. The perfect ‘oh I just threw this on!’ social isolation selfie. It’s a whole lot of work though. And girl? You’re already magic. x . . #instagramvsreality #fitspo #bodyconfidence #bodyacceptance #normalizenormalbodies

This goes out to the DM bully that told me my TIGER STRIPES make my legs look like TIGER BREAD. Jokes on him though – that’s one heck of a tasty lil SNACK. ? Now on a less cheeky note: how DO we handle people who PUT DOWN our appearance? Who critique our bodies? Who make little jabs or little comments, sometimes cruelly, sometimes kindly? I get asked this a lot. Here’s what’s helped me: ➡️NO ONE has any RIGHT to comment on your body. No one. It is yours and that is that. ➡️ When someone does comment, recognise its coming from their own internal battles and demons. I always think about how, if someone is that mean to another person, just how cruel they must be to themselves. ➡️ If it’s a comment coming from a place of love, share your emotions. Explain that it hurt you and you don’t like it. ➡️ If it’s from a stranger or a bully, don’t let their sting in. This is easier said than done (again, cowgirl here is still learning), but for me that’s one of the greatest responses. Someone aiming to hurt and tear down and break apart doesn’t warrant the vulnerability of my pain or my emotions. ➡️ And if you can, use those stones to build your castle. I’d love to know your tips. These are just some of mine, but they’re far from exhaustive. Now excuse me while I go find a great chunk of delicious bread. ? ? ? . . . #selflove #bodypositive #iweigh #womenirl #mentalhealth
