This Artist Highlights Body Image Struggles Women Regularly Face (Even Though They Shouldn't Have To)

One artist is taking it to the next level visually, and it's incredibly thought provoking.

"We girls have a tendency to easily find faults in our appearances, so if my followers can recognize themselves in my illustrations and laugh at them (and with them), I hope that it can help them de-dramatize the flaws that they see in themselves. Once assuming your flaws, you can finally stop caring about them and start to focus on what really matters to you," Dormeau explained. 1. Stomach folds body image illustration 2.
