Body confidence, however, is a tricky topic as everyone’s bodies and responses to them are different. It takes years for most people to love themselves and appreciate themselves, and that’s okay. These things take time and I spent many years wanting to tear off my own skin as I hated a lot of things about myself, and oddly enough, most of the features I was picked on about are now contributions to why photographers book me for shoots! (I’m one of the few active models with light olive skin and dark hair, naturally curly hair in Exeter). Although remember – any form of stress can impact on your body as well and lack of self-care as a result of stress can change your body, this is usually hit or miss so just keep that in mind.
