“Now normally I would fix my belly and smooth my skin but baby I wanted show u how I do it au natural [sic],” she penned as she looked stunning as she smiled while holding a mug.

In a bid to encourage fans to love and accept themselves, the ‘Truth Hurts’ star added: “I am excited to be partnering with @dove and the #DoveSelfEsteemProject which is helping to reverse the negative effects of social media and changing the conversation about beauty standards. Let’s get real y’all [sic].”

Further expressing why she’s encouraging fans to embrace their natural looks, she said in a statement to E! News: “I love how this generation is so creative in the ways in which they express themselves. It's really inspiring to see how people are taking their identity and their beauty into their own hands.

“However, people are struggling with their self-image and self-confidence more than ever. This is amplified by the increasing pressure to show a digitally distorted version of ourselves, reinforcing the idea that our beauty in real life is not good enough or worthy of likes."
