Demi Lovato is, arguably, this generation’s champion for body positivity. It’s no secret that the 23-year-old singer has battled her own demons in the past, but she has ferociously come out the other side and is using her celebrity status to inspire others.
On Monday, the former Disney Channel star posted a make-up free selfie to her Instagram account, along with a caption, saying, “Happy #NMM my beauties 💛 lemme see your face nudies in honor of #NMM and @devonnebydemi 😝😜.”
#NMM is a popular hashtag that stands for “No Make-Up Monday.”
Of course, this isn’t the first selfie of this kind that Demi has posted. In fact, the singer’s Instagram account, followed by an astounding 32 million people, is filled with photos that encourage her fans to love themselves and to love their bodies.
In a world in which many powerful people use their clout to endorse a lifestyle or particular image that is far from realistic, it is beyond refreshing to have someone like Demi Lovato use her influence to tell people that beauty comes in so many different forms.
