Selena Gomez has recently taken over the beauty market, and it’s not just because of her wide range of beloved, successful beauty products; rather, it’s also because of the strong, significant message that is so fundamental to her brand.
Rare Beauty’s basic mission has always been to empower people to love and accept their unique qualities, and the Rare Impact Fund serves as the brand’s main source of support for mental health awareness.
Gomez has also always been one to live up to her brand’s ideals by continuously putting them into practice in her day-to-day activities. In fact, the celebrity just used Instagram last night to provide fans a crucial message regarding body image—one that many of us, including myself, desperately needed.
Selena shared a photo of her teen-to-early-20s figure on Instagram Stories, writing, “Today, I realized I’ll never look like this again.” This essay resonates deeply with everyone who has ever fallen down the rabbit hole of going through previous photos of their body and felt the range of unpleasant emotions that occur from never fully accepting our adult bodies. However, the celebrity’s follow-up message is a crucial reminder for all of us who frequently pass judgment on our bodies too harshly.
Gomez posted a new photo of herself getting into a boat after emerging from the water, looking stunning as usual, and captioned it, saying, “I’m not perfect, but I’m proud to be who I am.” I occasionally forget that being myself is acceptable. The statement struck a chord with me, if you’re anything like me, since it’s so simple to forget to treat ourselves with kindness and accept ourselves—mind, body, and soul—just as we are.
