British pop group Little Mix have sent a powerful message out to fans: love yourself.
The four band members — Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock — posed naked with words scrawled on their skin. Words like: slutty, ugly, fat, talentless, odd-looking, flabby, tart, and gobby.
The image has been shared to promote the forthcoming single Strip — the video for which features body positivity activists like Bryony Gordon, Nimco Ali, and Hannah Witton.
The image appears to have resonated with fans, who took to social media to share their insecurities as well as the things they love about themselves.
when i was few days old i had to have life saving surgery. the scar i have to these days was always one of my biggest insecurities. since a while I started to accept it and stop constantly covering in the summer time. I made it. I survived. @LittleMix #StripWithLittleMix pic.twitter.com/j6u9JeHwNS

Little Mix taught me how to love myself everyday a bit more. I am not there yet, but one day I will love myself, and nobody will ever bring me down. I am so thankful for Little Mix because without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. ❤️✨ #StripWithLittleMix pic.twitter.com/mL7DhcWzBX

We could all do with loving ourselves a little more.
