Denise Laurel has been trending these past few days because of her sizzling snaps during her Maldives vacation.
The Kapamilya actress went there to celebrate her 30th birthday. According to her, the island has been her dream destination since 2004.
But aside from her badass photos, what made her posts viral are the captions that come with it. Through the social media app, Denise proudly showed the world that imperfections—stretch marks, folds, and all—are something to be proud of.
“Yes, I’m a mom! I got folds and stretch marks! It’s ME.” the actress said.
Seeing Denise with her so-called flaws—unretouched—is a message to all women out there to embrace their unique beauty no matter what imperfections they might believe they have.
“I’m so happy that a bunch of you guys have been sending me photos of you guys being liberated from the stigma of imperfections! Keep on sending me photos of you guys embracing your #stretchmarks #stripes! Let’s do this together guys! You are awesome!” Denise said.
There’s nothing more admirable than seeing a self-assured, confident woman. Here are other ‘grams that show the actress’ self-love and body-positivity. You go empower them, Denise!
