Cellulite is 100 percent natural, and yet we still feel ashamed of it, especially when it shows up and "ruins" photos of us. But what if we didn't think about cellulite this way? One curvy model, Sophie Turner, completely turned the way we think about cellulite on its head by posting a photo of herself rocking her cellulite on full display, and proving that cellulite has absolutely nothing to do with someone's sexiness.

  • After posing for a photo shoot, Turner was looking at some of the behind-the-scene images when she spotted her cellulite.

    At first, she felt upset that her cellulite was visible -- something a lot of people can probably relate to.

  • Then she realized something: "It was on my mind, but why should it [be]?" she wrote in the Instagram caption.

    "I am more than cellulite, I am more than the belly rolls and the back fat," she continued.

    As we should all remember (even though it's hard, with smooth skin being photoshopped left and right): Cellulite is totally and completely normal, and we should embrace what's our reality rather than wish to look differently.

  • "It's natural for us ladies to have cellulite and we need to stop seeing it as disgusting or ugly," she continued.

    Turner has had cellulite since she was 12 years old. "After living with something for a decade it's all a part of being me!" she wrote.

  • Even though the road to self-acceptance is slow, she thinks it's the best thing people can do for their own mental health and confidence.

    Many others agreed, and also found that her unapologetic photo has helped them in their own road to accepting their cellulite. 

    "Most women have cellulite, it's shameful for a woman to criticize another for having it!" someone commented. "I applaud you for embracing it! You are beautiful."

    "You are beautiful and your cellulite is beautiful because it belongs to you!" another person wrote. 

    We couldn't agree more.
