Face and Body Dysmorphia #perfectskin
Well, hi, friends. It's Tonia Ryan with Inance Skin Care. And today, I thought it was important that we talked about a big issue that's going on with celebrities and online, and that's face and body dysmorphia. It's a big problem. I'm going to tell you all about it coming up. But before we get started, please make sure you like and subscribe to my channel so we can always stay connected and you won't miss out on any of the great skincare deals and offers I have for you.

Okay. So you might have heard about this. It was just in the news recently, and it's about Khloe Kardashian. And there was a photo of her in her swimsuit that came out. Her grandmother actually posted it before they got a chance to airbrush it, smooth it out, whatever it is that they do. And I guess she was mortified. Somebody took the picture right away because, of course, on social media, somebody is going to see it first. They copied it before they could delete it. And then all the chaos started.

I guess the next day, lawsuits or copyright infringement, something happened where anyone who had that picture posted, Twitter was making them remove it. They were suspending the accounts. It turned into this huge deal. Now, Khloe does have that right. Yes. That's her grandmother's photo. Everyone shouldn't be able to keep posting it and whatnot. But at the same time, why did it upset her so much? That's the question I asked. That's the question that scares me about what's going on today with social media and everyone trying to make themselves look so perfect. It's getting a little bit out of hand.

I understand what's Khloe's issue, because she said on her show before, Keeping up with the Kardashians, that she's had a really hard time. People have judged everything about her, her relationship, her looks, on and on and on. And I know that that has to be incredibly difficult. But when you put yourself out there and you put yourself out in the spotlight, those things are bound to happen. Not that they should happen. Not that just because you're a public figure that people can say or do whatever they want about you online, although legally they can to a certain degree. But nevertheless, that does not give people ... It's not okay for them to do it, right? But they're going to do it. So you have to give yourself thick skin, ignore all of it, and just live your life.

I myself as a celebrity mentor have been around some of the greatest transformations in the world like Mama June. Mama June lost over 300 pounds. I went in there and helped her with her entire look, her image, her press tour, how she was going to look, all of that. And she looked gorgeous. She actually looked amazing. She did a lingerie shoot with me. It was the talk of the world. It was a huge deal. But of course, everyone was talking about her. They were talking about how she looked before, that she didn't look very good or so bad or awful or whatever they said, but then how great that she looked thin. So people are going to talk, but that is a part of being a celebrity and a part of getting press. And it all goes hand in hand.

So let's talk about if you aren't a celebrity, right? We all have insecurities. We don't like something about ourselves. Maybe we had acne that day, so we don't want to go out. So you have a big date or something like that, and you're worried about how you look. Those are normal things. When it gets bad is when you absolutely aren't going to that event. So when it becomes a problem is when we are deciding, "I'm not going to this event because I have acne or because I have rosacea," or something like that. That's when it becomes a problem.

Another problem is when we're filtering ourselves so much that it's unrealistic. We absolutely can never look like that, because it doesn't make sense. No one has completely flawless skin and it's not possible. So when you are filtering yourself so much, then you're afraid to go out in public because you don't look as good or you don't look the same. That's a problem, and that could be what Khloe Kardashian was presenting to the world, "I look like this. This isn't what I really look like."

So body dysmorphia and facial dysmorphia is a real thing. And I feel really bad for people who are going through this. It can be completely devastating and tragic. But the best thing for you to do is be happy with yourself. This whole last year was such a hard year with coronavirus, and it's not over. It's still continually things are happening, things are going on. Let's be happy that we are alive, we're healthy, we have lots of wonderful things to look forward to, and happiness should come from within.

It shouldn't be because, "Oh, my lips got injected today and I look prettier." That's fine if it makes you feel prettier, but that shouldn't be the basis of your happiness. And that's where we're getting problems. And that's where we're having serious issues.

So of course, I'm not going to post Khloe Kardashian's photo here for before and after. You can, of course, find that online if you'd like to see it. I personally think that she looked gorgeous. She's 30-something years old. I don't know, 38, maybe, I think. And she looked great. Sometimes lighting isn't wonderful. So maybe you don't look as good as you normally would look. But she's 38. She had a child. She looks beautiful. No, it wasn't ... Everything wasn't completely perfect. She didn't get to make herself as curvy as she normally looks. Big deal. This is real life, everyone. Let's not be afraid of how we actually look.

I am all about looking better. I've helped some of the biggest celebrities in the world to look better. But we don't want to have it be something that we're obsessing about constantly, filtering ourselves so much, airbrushing ourselves, changing exactly how we look to where we aren't comfortable in our own skin. That's when it becomes a problem, and that is what you want to avoid.

So if you have any questions or comments about this, go ahead and leave them below. In the meantime, if you want to get some good skincare, of course, we have it at InanceSkin.com. I'm going to put that down here below. I'm going to give you a coupon code. You can use coupon code YouTube at checkout, because, look, we also want to look good, we also want nice skin, but we don't want to be OCD about everything and about how we look. We still want to live our life. We have products that help with acne, rosacea, anti-aging, all of that. But of course, those things are still going to happen.

So you have to live your life. You have to feel comfortable in your skin. You have to love yourself and be the best you, friends. So have a wonderful day. I'll see you soon in my next video. I hope this video brought you a little bit of clarity, and have a wonderful day. I'll see you soon. Bye-bye, friends.
