Warum wir alle ein Cellulite-Selfie machen sollten

Immer wieder samstags … ist Zeit für ein Cellulite-Selfie. Wieso? Weil verstecken keine Option mehr ist! Eine Fotobewegung will Orangenhaut endlich zur Normalität erklären.

Cellulite, jetzt kommt DEIN Auftritt!

Ganz ehrlich: Habt ihr eure Cellulite schon einmal fotografiert? Diese Frage können wohl die wenigsten von uns mit ja beantworten. Verstecken, kaschieren, und sogar retuschieren – so gehen wir eher mit der herbeidiskutierten Problemzone um. Völlig absurd, findet die Kanadierin Kenzie Brenna, 26. Denn dass Cellulite endlich als stinknormal gelten muss, ist längst überfällig. Schließlich haben laut Studien 93% aller Frauen Orangenhaut. Uns allen soll endlich klar werden, dass die Bilder, die uns in Magazinen und Werbung glatte, makellose Oberschenkel zeigen, nicht die Norm sind. Wieso soll uns etwas, das am Computer retuschiert wurde, zum Nacheifern anspornen? Unter dem Hashtag #CelluliteSaturday sollen deshalb alle Frauen auf der Welt samstags (offenbar der Wochentag, an dem alle Zeit haben) ihre Dellen fotografieren und auf Instagram posten.

Das absurde Leid mit der Orangenhaut

Kenzie Brenna verbrachte schon einige Stunden ihres Lebens damit, ihre Cellulite zu bekämpfen. Salzbäder, Bürsten-Massagen, teure Anti-Cellulite-Cremes, Diäten – nichts führte zu positiven Resultaten. Im Gegenteil. Kenzie wurde immer unsicherer und unglücklicher. Bis sie beschloss, das scheinbare Problem ins Positive zu drehen. Mit ihrem Aufruf will sie Frauen überzeugen, dass Cellulite kein Problem ist. Sondern etwas, was nun einmal zu den meisten Frauenkörpern gehört.

Gerade kommt der Hashtag #CelluliteSaturday ins Rollen. Und zwar schwungvoller als jeder Anti-Cellulite-Roller. Wer Lust hat dabei zu sein, knipst mit! Alle anderen dürfen sich davon überzeugen, dass sie nicht allein sind mit ihren Orangen.

#cellulitesaturday? Can that be a thing? Last time I posted a picture of me TRYING to embrace a part of my body that I have been trying to change forever, 2 things happened. 1. A lot of women and even a few men came forward and said amazinggggg things like "thanks, your dope I need this, I NEED to see more of this, I WANT to see more of this, keep doing what you're doing, yes to normal bodies, etc." the incredible comments kept going, of people sharing their own struggles with trying to accept their bodies, to some women who don't even have cellulite embracing my body - THAT my friends is what this bopo community is all about. 2. Second thing that happened was obviously, the opposite. "Disgusting, gross, cellulite is not healthy, don't encourage kids or women to be unhealthy, nasty, wtf, if you exercise or rub cream or do-this-thing-that-makes-no-sense it will help you get rid of it" that shit went on, in my DM's and in the public comments. I am not going to sit here and write to you what cellulite is, what it ISN'T or try to bang it into your head that yes, my dear friends "thin + healthy + fit" women also have cellulite, I am going to let you do your own research. You have google and you have can DM if you want to have a CONVERSATION exchanging opinions, facts and resources to help us BRIDGE gaps instead of create bigger ones. I exercise 5x a week, I will murder you at cardio (my cardiovascular system is off the hizzy), I foam roll, I do yoga, I stretch, I eat my greens and I drink over a gallon of water every day. I used to use creams, I used to dry brush, I got massages and considered surgery. SO, don't tell me that I have to be more fit, more healthy, more this, more that, don't tell me to try your cream or that I need to create more blood flow to the places where my cellulite exists. Cause bish, I got chu. Been there done that. My friends, my cellulite is here to stay. And I am fucking okay with that. #bodyacceptance #celluliteyoualrite #namaslay #thisiswhatfitlookslike #embracethesquish #mesosquishy #mermaidthighs #iamallwoman #tbcr 🌈😊🌸😊🌸😊🌸😊🌈

IF YOU TRY TO SELL ME YOUR CELLULITE TREATMENT, I DON'T WANT IT. 😷 Now thats out of the way... This girl goes to the gym 4-5x a week. She weightlifts, includes cardio and plyometrics, she eats a personal well balanced diet and has for the last year. For those of you who comment and tell me "if you only lost ten pounds your cellulite would go away," without having researched my page to see I have lost over 50 pounds and yes my cellulite appear has reduced but it has not "gone away." Here are the stats again: 93% of women have cellulite. AND- You have a 90% chance of developing cellulite if you're a woman. 🙆💕If those stats don't make you feel at home and normal in your body I don't know what will 💕🙆 We have made it a "COSMETIC issue" not an indication of health. This is straight from the doc's mouth, not mine. It has to do with a combination of genetics and hormones. Which you can really only fuck with to a certain extent. THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE CELLULITE IS TO REMOVE FAT. Can you remove fat through a topical cream? By massaging it? By drinking green tea? By rubbing coconut oil on yourself? That's not how it works. Stop this misinformation right now. 👏Cellulite is normal. And the beauty industry capitalizes on saying we need it removed.👏 Again, I'm not going to shame a woman for trying to work to get rid of hers I completely understand and respect the decision to do so. This message isn't for her. This message is for women who crave acceptance, self love and want appreciation for their bodies as they exist right now. Also sorry for the dbl watermark, I saw some people using my photos and cropped out my name from them 🙃 how nice! #cellulitesaturday #mermaidthighs #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositivity #nobodyshame #lovetheskinyourein #thisiswhatfitlookslike
