Αs we finally enter the era where "imperfections" are rewarded, flawless, well-shaped bodies and perfect skin are no longer the only images starring on social media. The voice of the stars makes the difference because they help to eliminate the bias regarding body images. They are the only ones who can reveal to us the various behind-the-scenes images that we don't see on social media, magazine covers, and TV.

Sara Sampaio used popular audio on TikTok to encourage her 7.5 million Instagram followers to show love to their bodies in every form. She wrote an empowering message in her caption, "Be kind to people and yourself, and please stop commenting on people's changing bodies." 

"Bodies that look like this, also look like this. Backs that look like this, also look like this," the audio says, as Sampaio shows her body at different angles, both posed and relaxed.

The false and utterly unattainable beauty standards show unrealistic images and a body image that is "perfect." The term "Body positivity" refers to the assertion that all people deserve to have a positive body image, regardless of how society and popular culture view ideal shape, size, and appearance. Most women are struggling with the idea of the perfect body, which is made of unrealistic body standards. Body positivity can also mean appreciating your body despite flaws, feeling confident about your body, accepting your body's shape and size, and most importantly, loving yourself.

Negin Mirsalehi, one of the most famous influencers, posted a photo of herself before and after covid. In her picture with the caption "Pre-covid vs. now," she responds to her followers asking about her face, which looks different, about her being pregnant or having fillers that she had gained weight.

Negin's post is a perfect example of how influencers can use their platform to show natural female bodies and inform other women that they are not alone in their struggles with weight and self-acceptance.

While everyone is trying to get used to this new world, gaining weight is normal during quarantine and lockdowns. Women feel a constant pressure to appear perfect and struggles with images of perfect bodies and filtered faces dominating Instagram's feed. Negin wants to let their followers know that they're not alone in their struggle with body-image and weight gain.
