Find­ing self-ac­cep­tance

Closer (UK) - - Contents -

We live in a world where im­age seems to W be ev­ery­thing. And thanks to the rise of edit­ing apps, any­one can tweak their self­ies to per­fec­tion. How­ever, it’s spilling over to real life. In a wor­ry­ing re­port on p22, we speak to selfie-ob­sessed women who have ac­tu­ally gone un­der the knife to achieve the fil­tered look they used on In­sta­gram – with ex­perts warn­ing that apps are fu­elling a rise in body dys­mor­phia. Re­fresh­ingly, we also speak to Loose Women star Stacey Solomon (p58), who re­veals she’s beaten her body hang-ups by ac­cept­ing her­self as she is. And some­one else who has found hap­pi­ness in hon­esty is Gemma Collins. Af­ter strug­gling with fad di­ets, she’s learned to cel­e­brate her body and is ready to meet The One. It makes sense that the start­ing point to find­ing love is learn­ing to love who we re­ally are.
