Laura Wells has been sharing her self love secrets to encourage women to feel good about themselves.
The 36-year-old is a model and appeared on Australian Survivor.
But unlike some reality TV stars who only post filtered snaps on social media, she is well known for being a body positivity advocate.
Speaking this week, Laura encouraged others to unfollow people on social media who "make you feel bad about yourself".
If you're constantly scrolling through images that have been Photoshopped to "perfection", you may start comparing yourself.
So Laura hopes her message will show fans to "accept (their) body for what it is".
Laura told Daily Mail Australia: "I believe body confidence is a personal journey.
"It is fluid and constantly changing, but is about accepting yourself for who you are and not comparing yourself to others.
"We are all inherently different, we are all made up of different genes, so idolising someone else's body and striving to look like them can be really detrimental both physically and mentally, and is more often than not unachievable."
Laura gave some advice when it come to beauty standards on social media platforms such as Instagram, she said to be selective with who you follow.
She said: "I encourage everyone, no matter what stage of the body positivity journey you are on, to stop following anyone on social media that makes you feel bad about yourself.
"If you are noticing you are comparing yourself to certain people online, stop following them. You don't need that constant negative mental bombardment."
Laura is a model with a degree in biology and a passion for marine science.
"I will always continue to use my voice for good, to educate, empower and encourage others to make a difference in the world,' she added.
"Empowering people to make sustainable choices in everyday life is something I am passionate about."
