Catriona Gray posted a photo of her bare face on Instagram on Wednesday, December 2, to share the truth behind social media.
In her post, the Miss Universe 2018 enumerated her imperfections and stressed that she is not "flawless."
She posted, "Just jumping on here with a bare faced selfie to remind you that even though in photoshoots, makeup and IG story filters, my skin looks 'flawless'... in reality I have pores, oiliness, fine lines, breakouts, beauty spots and moles...and I'm perfectly fine with that," she revealed.
The beauty queen remarked that what many people see online is not the real thing.
"This is just a kind, little reminder to remember that what we see online is a 'curated feed,' and that we shouldn't compare that to our everyday reality. #AsSheIs," she said.
This is not the first time that Catriona highlighted the importance of embracing oneself on social media.
In November last year, she also posted a snapshot of herself without makeup. She said that self-love is a worthwhile journey.
"#AsSheIs This is the skin I wake up in every day. I love playing with makeup and being glam, but I've also grown to love the skin I wake up in acne scars, moles and all," she said.
Catriona added, "I too have days where I don't feel confident, or my insecurities are louder...but that's okay. Loving yourself as you are is a journey, but it's a journey worth taking," she said.
