Ariel Winter prefers to wear a full face of makeup to the beach, and her reason is so empowering

All too often, feeling body conscious at the beach can hang a cloud over what would otherwise be a fun experience. However, the actress Ariel Winter is approaching the beach with confidence and hoping to inspire other young women to do the same.

In an interview with Refinery29, natural role model Ariel Winter shared that one of her secrets for staying body positive during bikini season is to treat her beach trips like any other outing. For her, this includes wearing a full face of her favorite makeup, because it makes her feel more in her element.

She told Refinery29 her thoughts about the pressures of beach season, and how to keep it body positive,

"I’m definitely a makeup at the beach person, and I don’t care if people think I look ridiculous — it’s my beach day! Whether I want to go natural or with makeup or in sweatpants, that’s up to me. People are so stressed out about how they’re going to look in their bathing suits that they forget to go to the beach because they want to go to the beach, which defeats the whole purpose. The beach should be a safe space.

This is a care free attitude we’d all do well to adopt when it comes to having some fun this summer.

After all, we go to the ocean to appreciate the beauty of a majestic body of water. Why not treat our own bodies the same way?
