How has social media affected your idea of beauty?
Social media has had a major impact on my idea of beauty, not only is it a pretence of everyone is living this most amazing life but even silly things. I have really visible pores, but I didn’t realise that was normal because everyone I saw online had filters on. This idea of constantly comparing yourself to everyone and thinking, “oh their hair looks like this, their skin looks like this, they’ve got no acne”. There I was covered in cystic acne and not seeing anyone look like me for so long, until I found the skin positivity movement on Instagram. Now social media has really positively affected my idea of beauty because I see it as whatever’s inside us!
