Why this Aussie woman has never posted a single edited photo of her body or face on Instagram

A 24-year-old Australian woman who has never posted an edited photo of her face of body on Instagram is leading the way for self love and more natural figures on social media.

Ariella Nyssa is going from strength-to-strength in her career as a model and influencer and has more than 570,000 followers on Instagram.

The Sydney woman has never tweaked the size or shape of her stomach, made her legs longer or removed moles or cellulite from her images before posting them.

‘Your stomach is perfect. Your legs are perfect. Your arms are perfect. Your bum is perfect. Your face is perfect. YOU ARE IMPERFECTLY PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE,’ she said in a recent post, showing off her amazing body in an off-the shoulder bikini.

The young woman is leading the way for body positivity and for women everywhere to put their real bodies on social media.

She previously said she still gets messages about her cellulite, with one person going so far as to say it looks like a plastic bag shriveled in the snow.

But the young beauty refuses to post doctored pictures online.

‘Cellulite is beautiful! It’s apart of me. My marks that make me, me. I would never change them for the world, no matter what anyone else says! Your cellulite rocks gal, embrace it and love it.’ 

Her recent post was liked by more than 17,000 of her followers who thanked her for her guidance.

‘Such an amazing message,’ one woman said.

‘You are such a light, beautiful inside and out,’ said another woman.

Others called her perfect, beautiful and amazing for continuing to fight the trend of airbrushed Instagram photos.

‘You’ve no REAL idea what you actually do for people like me and I thank you! You are such a beauty, never ever stop shining your light,’ said another woman, helped by Ariella’s confidence.

‘Absolutely beautiful, you give me so much hope and will power to stay away from my editor and accept I’m beautiful in my own way,’ said another.  

Other women who aren’t in the spotlight have revealed they feel the they need to edit their images, removing moles and even changing the shape of their face to fit in with the ‘glowing’ mum community online.

This is the kind of trend Ariella is hoping to smash through with her photos. 

Previous posts have had the same impact on her audience which continues to grow despite the negative comments she receives.

In August 2019, Ariella told how she believed companies had turned her down for photoshoots because her body is too ‘real’.

'Your stomach is perfect. Your legs are perfect. Your arms are perfect. Your bum is perfect. Your face is perfect,' she has said

She added that she was ‘so over’ companies knocking her back on the basis she was too ‘big’ or her skin wasn’t smooth enough.

Ariella claimed that while brands and modelling agencies never directly said her body was the reason for their refusal, their actions proved otherwise.

While Ariella has been able to grow an Instagram following of hundreds of thousands, she said big companies reject or simply completely ignore her requests to collaborate.

One of her friends, meanwhile, was given work with a company who rejected her.

‘They’d say “oh, we’re not looking at the moment” – but then I’d see that my friend who is a size six has just started working with them,’ Ariella claimed.

‘Every time I try to push past these beauty standards I get shut down. I’m so over trying to show people the beauty in all of us.’
