H Danae Mercer είναι η influencer που λέει την αλήθεια για τα γυναικεία σώματα

Η Danae Mercer είναι μία δημοσιογράφος που ζει στα Ηνωμένα Αραβικά Εμιράτα και έχει περάσει πολλά χρόνια από τη ζωή της έχοντας λιμοκτονήσει για να γίνει "το τέλειο skinny πρότυπο" που είχε στο μυαλό της.

Αυτό γινόταν παλιά. Γιατί πλέον έχει αποφασίσει να δώσει τέλος στα πρότυπα ομορφιάς που μας επιβάλλει το διαδίκτυο. Πάντα παίζει ρόλο η γωνία της κάμερας, τα ρούχα, ο φωτισμός, το στήσιμο του σώματος. Οι λεπτομέρειες αυτές είναι που κάνουν τη διαφορά.

Το προφίλ της στο Instagram μας μαθαίνει τα κόλπα που χρησιμοποιούν οι influencers για να φαίνονται άψογες στα social media! Ανεβάζει βίντεο, εξηγώντας πώς καθένας μπορεί να «καμουφλάρει» τα αδύνατά του σημεία, να δείξει κάτι που, στην πραγματικότητα, δεν είναι.

«Ο κίνδυνος που κρύβουν τα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης είναι πως τα αισθανόμαστε πιο προσιτά από την τηλεόραση και τα περιοδικά. Όμως δεν είναι, δε θα το έλεγα. Όλα είναι φιλτραρισμένα», είχε πει σε συνέντευξή της στο Insider. 

«Εργαζόμουν σε φωτογραφίσεις αθλητών, οπότε έμαθα τα μικρά κόλπα μέσω των οποίων οι επαγγελματίες μπορούν να κάνουν οποιονδήποτε να δείχνει τέλειος», είχε αναφέρει.

Insta vs Reality / OR changing your BODY does not change your BODY IMAGE. There was a time in my life when I was obsessed with being thin. I skipped meals. Memories. Moments. I was convinced if I lost those next 10lbs, if I hit this magical number in my mind, I would feel good. Strong. WORTHY. I was convinced I would be LOVED. And that maybe, just maybe, I would love myself too. But here’s the thing: Shrinking changed NOTHING. Except some number on a scale. Now I am heavier. Older. And I have never felt more confident in my body or in myself. It’s still a work in progress (always, maybe always), but I see my CELLULITE and don’t feel shame. I see my limbs with all their bits in ALL THE LIGHTING and love what they can do for me. And I see my heart, clumsy as it is, stumbling as it is, and I let it be. I let it exist without judgement. So today, I want to remind you something it too me far too long to learn: Changing our APPEARANCE won’t FIX what’s going on INSIDE. We can train and sweat and eat all the greens, but if we don’t solve what’s happening in our hearts or in our heads, those thoughts will remain. Those battles will remain. Whether they are related to how we see our BODIES Or how we view OURSELVES. The work starts inside. In our heads. In our hearts. In the quiet, raw, tender bits of our soul, that sit so fragile and so shy just crying out for love. In all these parts, that’s where the true change happens. And that’s something we can never really share in an insta/reality photo. But we can certainly like all the same. You got this girl. x Photo @chiclebelle who is just a wondrous woman. #selflove #bodyconfident #selflove #iweigh #feminist #mentalhealth #edrecovery

LIGHTING changes PHOTOS - But also, it doesn’t change a THING ABOUT YOU. First, the technique: In the shadows, my cellulite disappears. In the harsher direct window light, it pops out to say hello. And this is pretty common. It’s the same thing as sunrise / midday. At sunrise, soft side light tends to whisk away lumps and bumps. By midday that light is top-down and pretty aggressive. Cellulite and stretchmarks are on full display. And now, the actual message: Next time you start to compare yourself to a stranger on social media, remember this. Remember how lighting can be manipulated to create ‘perfection’. The same for angles. Posing. Squeezing. Camera position. Mirror types. Oil on the skin. And so on, and on, and on. So don’t compare your thousands of angles, your billions of moments, to their PERFECT SECOND SNAPSHOT. You, lovely lady, you’re great in all lights. You’re wonderful from all angles. And you’re incredible in all moments. Because you’re already you. And that’s more than enough. #selflove #weartheshorts #selfacceptance #feminist #instagramvsreality #bodyconfident #womenirl

BEFORE and AFTER transformations are so gosh darn easy to FAKE. And dodgy brands, like those selling DIET TEAS or DIET JABS (the newest horrible thing to hit the market) often do exactly that. So before I get into the ANGLES and the technique and all that razzle dazzle, I just want to say this: Be careful. Especially to the teens on here, or those of us who have struggled with disordered body image. Be careful. Dodgy companies will use dodgy methods to try to sell you things you don’t need. Things like teas that make you poo or SHOTS that mess up your body or pills that make your heart race. HEALTH goals are incredible. There are LOADS of GENUINE FITNESS transformations on here too. Plenty of REAL ‘before and afters’, which are shared by folks who are proud at all they’ve achieved. Those are incredible. I always have and I always will APPLAUD HEALTH as an act of self love. This post isn’t about that. It’s about the BEFORE AND AFTERS with DIET ADS. Or with DETOX TEAS. Or with the most recent onslaught of SKINNY SHOTS. And all the awful, awful fakery that wraps themselves around products more concerned with MONEY than with WELLNESS. It’s about learning to be careful. And to view the internet with a critical eye — especially where money is involved. Now if you’re curious about HOW I took these PHOTOS, here’s what I did: Pulled my bottoms up higher (longer leg line). Arched my back (waist looks smaller, bum bigger). Popped into my hips. Squeezed my core. Played with light and shadows to hide my cellulite. Swapped into more flattering clothes. And BAM. Before to After in 10 seconds flat. Try it if you fancy. It’s pretty much a back workout. So there you go. Glad you’re here. I hope this helped. Please don’t ever buy a skinny jab. We’re in this together. x #angles #posingtips #selfconfidence #beforeandafter #instagramvsreality #instavsreality
