This Influencer Is Helping The Body Positivity Movement Go In The Right Direction

Among all the retouched pictures, filters, attention seekers, and flawless (photoshopped) bodies, there are still many social media users who not only want to stay away from altered and distorted pictures, but they also try to emphasize their natural and unique bodies and faces in every way. Such kind of people give us light at the end of the tunnel, showing us that we don’t need an editing program or app, or a certain pose (e.g. duck face) to look ‘cool’ or be ‘cool’.

With Photoshop invading many social media accounts, Karina Irby is far away from such a group. She is a social media influencer, a self-taught designer, an Australian beauty, and an entrepreneur who owns ‘Moana Bikini’. Through her unique swimwear empire, Karina has changed the way we see women online, and most importantly how we see ourselves. She is making us understand that the version of people we see online, is not always the real version of themselves.

Karina regularly shares photos of her stretch marks, cellulite, and eczema, through which she is helping the body positivity movement go in the right direction.

In 2018, she managed to normalize eczema, a medical condition in which patches of skin become rough and inflamed with blisters that cause itching and bleeding, through her photos.

Her mission is to encourage women to embrace and show off their so-called “flaws”.

Take this before-and-after photo, for instance.

Karina is also open when talking about cellulite and sees nothing wrong with not trying to edit her body in order to meet Instagrammer’s beauty standards.

Rolls and curves are also part of her body she likes to talk about, show, and embrace.
