Share Your #mybodyphilosophy and Win A Years Supply of Bio-Oil!

We see edited images of bodies everyday; most of which are unattainable and unrealistic. These kind of photos have a negative effect on us and make us feel like we aren't good enough. Young adults are especially influenced by this and has a huge impact on their self confidence. In my teens I often worried and scrutinised my appearance; altering my looks to be more like the cover girls on my favourite magazine and less like me. I would avoid swimming lessons as I was too body conscious and always made excuses to get out of PE. according to a recent survey by Bio-Oil, I wasn't alone. Out of 3000 women a quarter said they had been bullied about their looks making 1 in 5 feel ugly and 1 in 10 self harm. As well as this, 41% of women said they believed they would be happier if they have more body confidence. Looking back now, I know I should have worried less about my body image and focused on more important things. Even today I'm still hung up on my insecurities and I believe if I had more support during those influential school years things would have been different.

Cult beauty brand Bio-Oil have teamed up with body confidence charity, Body Gossip to inspire a life time of body confidence through a road show of performances in schools. Bio-Oil are calling out for your body philosophy to help boost self esteem and body confidence. Your body philosophy may be something you wish you had known when you were younger or some wisdom your mother passed onto you. A few quotes I love are 'real girls are not perfect, perfect girls are not real.' 'Embrace your imperfections, it's what makes you unique!' And also, 'Take care of your body as it is the only place you can live.'

To help inspire others and be in a chance of winning a years supply of Bio-Oil simply share your body philosophy below. Body philosophies shared will become valuable content for the campaign and used to inspire a generation of young people to love their bodies.
Good luck!
