Reality TV star, Venita Akpofure, has advised her fellow women to be proud of their body flaws. The former BBNaija ‘Pepper Dem’ season four housemate took to her Instagram page to express the insecurities that she used to have about her body.
The actress noted that it took her a long time before she could finally accept her body the way it is.
In her words:
“Before I repost this archived pic….I decided not to edit it I wanted to share with my fellow women that it’s ok to celebrate your body flaws and all. I’m 34. I have two children. I have stretch marks and occasionally suffer from hormonal acne & anxiety.
I hate to wear make up on a normal day (when I’m not working) . I love wigs and extensions but I prefer my natural hair now that I’ve grown to love every inch of who I am. And it took me a LONG time.
Like a plant you must always nourish yourself and feed yourself things that are good for your mind spirit and body. Block out the naysayers…it’s their insecurities that they deflect on you. That is no reflection of who you are. Love your flaws & exercise your strengths. Pray on the rest. It will always follow. 💕to all the mothers who make it happen everyday no matter what. 👙 @lamis_intimates#explorepage #asiam”
