Somebody asked me why I don’t use filters on IG.⁣
The most honest answer I can give is this.⁣
Because I think that every time we use a filter, we’re telling our youngsters that THAT is the definition of beauty. That smooth skin, bigger eyes, plumper lips and smaller nose are more beautiful than natural, just-the-way-it-is faces.⁣
For the same reason, I stopped wearing makeup every day, because I don’t want my children, especially Emily, to think that we shouldn’t like our faces just the way they are.⁣
If you do use filters and makeup, please don’t feel criticised. This is my personal decision and my personal journey towards what I, Carlotta, think would be a better future.⁣
