Jameela Jamil Shows Off Her 'Babe Marks' In Powerful Post About Skin Positivity

The Good Place actress and beloved internet icon Jameela Jamil took to social media on April 1st to stand up for people of all different kind's natural skin.


On Instagram, Jamil wrote about how stretch marks were nothing to be ashamed of:

"Boob stretch marks are a normal, beautiful thing. I have stretch marks all over my body and I hereby rename them all Babe Marks. They are a sign my body dared to take up extra space in a society that demands our eternal thinness. They are my badge of honour for resisting society's weaponizing of the female form. ❤️ ps. My face is white because I wear spf 100 sunscreen like a boss. 🤓 PS. LOVE YOUR BROWN SKIN. I tan responsibly but I love to tan! I love to embrace and celebrate my heritage. This skin bleaching and whitening should be banned. It's inherently racist, classist and emotionally very damaging."

Jamil is sick of people feeling ashamed of their skin when all different kinds look beautiful!

She even came up with a new name for stretch marks: Babe Marks!

Twitter loved her suggestion.




Many Twitter users felt comforted by Jamil's message.



Why be ashamed when you could be proud of your body?!



Freckles aren't something to get rid of!


People online were in love with Jamil for her bravery and frankness.




All types of skin are beautiful, and there's no reason to be ashamed of the body you were born with.

Thanks for reminding us of that, Jameela!

This isn't the first time Jameela spoke about body positivity. Jamil is always promoting self confidence and healthy habits, even battling with the Kardashians over their harmful weight loss endorsements.

Jameela Jamil is the role model we've all been waiting for!
