Deze kunstenares gebruikt glitter om striae (veel!) mooier te maken

Hoe blij je ook bent met je uk, een baby zorgt voor veel veranderingen in je lichaam. En ja, dat brengt wat putjes en streepjes met zich mee. De Pakistaanse kunstenares Sara Sakheel was zelf onzeker over haar striae en besloot er iets moois van te maken. Met glitter welteverstaan. Wij zijn nu al fan.

De kunstenares was onzeker over het uploaden van de beelden, die ze in Photoshop bewerkt heeft. ‘Ik ben een Pakistaanse artiest en praten over je striae, laat staan er kunst van maken, is niet iets wat je doet op een dagelijkse basis.’ De beelden lijken op de beelden van de Spaanse kunstenares Cinta Tort Cartó, die afgelopen jaar viraal ging met haar foto’s. Het verschil is dat Cinta de strepen zelf inkleurde, waar Sara Photoshop gebruikt.

O ja, en de glitter. Vergeet de glitter niet.

Glitter up!

I have never felt so powerful & liberated and so fucking proud of mystretch marks in my entire life !!! From where I come from & live , To be on the chubby side or to even talk about stretchmarks is not something one is proud of, i have seen my stretch marks grow from the day i started putting on weight, I'd be honest even before uploading it I was thinking why would anyone be interested in my concept of stretch marks turned into glitter or crystals!!! My god I was so wrong! Amazing people and women are already doing such an amazing job with representing these stripes and cellulite!!! Thank you for a beautiful response everyone!!!! I have been featured on @cosmopolitan & @yahoostylebeauty link is in my story. Support and love yourself for who ever you are! Cause there is someone out there sharing the same feelings as you are! There is one thing for sure YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! 🌹🌹🌹🌸🌼🌻 #glitterstretchmarks #stretchmarks #happy #inlove #loveyourself #theweekoninstagram #instagram #tigerstripes . . This picture is by one of my amazing followers who was brave enough to share this with me!! Thank you love!!!!

Hoewel in dit geval genezen er leuker uitziet dan voorkomen, is dat natuurlijk ook nog een poging waard. Kans op striae verkleinen: dit moet je echt proberen!
