Aussie blogger goes viral with cellulite post

IF YOU are tired of Instagrammers and influencers who only post selfies that are airbrushed to within an inch of their life, then you'll find Sophie Allen a breath of fresh air.

Allen, "a PT and nutrition coach in training" from Sydney, gained a legion of fans after documenting her fitness journey on Instagram.

But it was a photo posted earlier this month that catapulted her into the international spotlight, and resulted in a write up by Allure in the US.

Allen posted side-by-side photos, to demonstrate how easy it is to appear cellulite free in photos.

She captioned the unfiltered photo, saying "Just keepin' it real with y'all #ihavecellulitetoo and it appears when I squeeze my butt & disappears with the simple act of slightly tilting my hips out!

Bikini body 👙🌿 I'm sure we've all had that feeling where you're feeling cute at the beach but then you sit down and all of a sudden feel insecure and don't know how to sit without your tummy feeling oddly too exposed. The other day I went to the beach and would have slight moments where I felt like people were looking at my tummy and these feelings of insecurity where I wanted to hide my tummy because "it didn't look good" sitting down. But I realised that I was being silly and ruining my time at the beach and not enjoying it fully just because of this small silly thing. You really shouldn't feel that way! Everyone looks like this when they sit down! Nobody is judging you and even if someone was then that's a reflection of their inner insecurities, not yours. You are not fat. We all have fat, especially on our tummies and it's completely normal. And that fat does not make you worth any less as a person! Nobody has abs or a flat tummy 24/7 when they sit down. Don't let this idea ruin your time because it's completely normal! If you want to wear a bikini, then wear it cause life's too short not to wear what you want!! You look amazing so wear it with confidence and you'll radiate beauty! 🌴☀️ ------------------------------------------ . . . #bikinibody #bodypositive #lawofattraction #beachtime #insecurities #bodyposi #fitnessmotivation #positiveenergy #manifest #bodyfat #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyacceptance #selflove #bopowarrior #allbodiesarebeautiful #fitnessjourney #weightlossjourney #bopo #vegansofig #veganfitness #bbg #positivethinking #positivelife #positivemind #loveyourself #youareenough #youmatter

A post shared by Sara Puhto (@saggysara) on

Sara Puhto, a 20-year-old Finnish body blogger, has attracted over 110k followers by posting such photos. She went viral last month after sharing a series of split images to her social media page. On one side she has the typical Instagram-worthy perfect portrait - abs sculpted, booty round, mouth wide open and smiling. In the other, aptly titled "Real Life," she keeps the same grin, but adopts a more natural stance - sitting, walking, standing normally. The difference is startling, which was Puhto's point.

"If I saw the photo on the left a year ago I would've instantly thought so negatively about my body, that all my hard work from working out was non-existent, that if someone looked at me they would've never thought I've been working out for 2 years and think I wasn't trying hard enough. But the thing is that all bodies look different. Nobody's booty looks round and peachy from all angles. Nobody's body looks the same from all angles."
