Victoria, co-founder of the Fit Body Guide, took to Instagram earlier this week to post side-by-side photos of herself, one in “the best possible lighting” and the other in lighting that highlighted cellulite on her arm.
“Lighting. Is. Everything. 99% of pictures you see on social media are taken in the best possible lighting and that ain’t no accident,” Victoria wrote alongside the photos.
“When I got into the elevator with the lighting on the right, I zoned in on the cellulite on the back of my arms,” she continued. “Yes, cellulite on your arms is a thing! I’ve had it since the beginning of my journey and while it’s lightened up since then, it’s still not totally gone … because I’m human.”
The lengthy post has garnered a lot of attention, amassing more than 30,000 Likes in just one day, along with several comments.
Victoria noted alongside the photo that although the appearance of cellulite can be reduced through a “healthy diet, regular exercise and proper water intake,” genetics also play a part in dimpling skin.
“Seriously, girls, stop thinking you’re the only one with cellulite and that it’s some kind of disease,” the trainer said. “Do I love the look of my arms on the right? No, but I don’t hate it or hate myself for it, either. And you shouldn’t either.”
