Known for sharing her workouts and exercise tips, fitness star Anna Victoria has amassed over a million followers on Instagram. And while most of her images are flawless, she is also keen to show her fans that social media can be misleading through candid posts.

Her latest is two pictures of herself side by side, showing her arms in different lightings. The first is “the best possible lighting” and the other is harsh, strip 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 💁 so when I got into the elevator with the lighting on the right, I zoned in on the cellulite on the back of my arms. 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. Seriously, girls, stop thinking you’re the only one with cellulite and that it’s some kind of disease! Yes, it absolutely can be reduced through healthy diet, exercise and proper water intake, but another component which you can’t control is genetics, and just being human. It’s not bad to want to reduce the sight of cellulite just like it’s not bad to want to lose weight and feel more confident overall, but don’t set out to lose weight JUST to have less cellulite. It can be a cherry on top of all the other amazing benefits. If you ask me how to reduce the appearance of cellulite, my answer will be: healthy diet, regular exercise and proper water intake – that’s it. I will not suggest creams or wraps or whatever else the current fad is because those are only short term fixes (IF that..) and perpetuate the idea that health/results can be found in a bottle/package. So, do I love the look of my arms on the right? No, but I don’t hate it or myself for it, either. And you shouldn’t either ❤️ #fbggirls #realtalk #cellulite www.annavictoria.com/guides

The post garnered a lot of attention, with over 30,000 likes in just one day. Victoria acknowledged, alongside the snap, that although the appearance of cellulite can be reduced through “a healthy diet, regular exercise and proper water intake,” genetics also play a huge part.

“Seriously, girls, stop thinking you’re the only one with cellulite and that it’s some kind of disease,” she wrote. “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.” We love this – social media needs more honesty of this kind!
