Many at times, young girls see female celebrities as flawlessly beautiful on TV screens, Instagram pages or any other social media platforms and would go miles to emulate these personalities even their physical looks.
However, the smooth face we see isn’t really a smooth face. The flat tommy and curvy shape ain’t the reality.
These female celebrities also have flaws. Flaws which get covered. Flaws which go through to numerous editing.
The Ghanaian actress, model, film producer and entrepreneur, Yvonne Nelson has taken to her Facebook page to advise young girls to be appreciative of what they are and not to push too hard to be physically perfect.
She had images of herself before and after makeup and how social media don’t show the reality of the people we think have perfect bodies.
She added that, young ladies should rather focus on educating themselves and not strive to be like others.
On her Facebook page was;
“This is a sincere and an honest post 🙏🏽 Calm down young girl, I AM NOT PERFECT , we aren’t perfect. Don’t push too hard to be perfect physically…..its ok to feel inadequate sometimes, we are only human …..put that energy into educating yourself. Use the part of the body many forget to use, THE BRAIN, use it to its fullest, read, explore, Smile, speak up,don’t be afraid, breathe…. and know this one thing you are perfectin God’s eyes, you are different and that makes you unique. Never try to be someone else, don’t let them distract you! God has tailored your journey for YOU. Sending my love to you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️ SMILE YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL ❤️❤️❤️❤️.
