If an up-coming holiday with your mates, or the idea of a summer BBQ already has you considering upping the number of sessions at the gym, eating celery, and worrying about how you're going to squeeze into last year's bikini that you accidentally shrunk in the wash, you're in need of some words of wisdom from body positivity activist Iskra Lawrence.

The British model has come to the rescue, to save us from our moans and groans about our muffin tops and cellulite with a slew of untouched pictures from a recent photo shoot to show the importance of self-love, appreciation and acceptance for the one body we have.

Posting an image to Instagram yesterday showing her wearing a beautiful salmon pink bra by lingerie and swimwear brand Aerie, Iskra captioned the picture: 'All bodies are created equal but created imperfectly perfect and 100% unique. Deserving of your love and respect. They are our homes. They hold our magical souls.'

The 26-year-old – who currently stars in jeans brand American Eagle's diverse new campaign – went onto thank Aerie, which celebrates body positivity, empowerment and encourages women to love their real bodies, to say: 'Thank you for never retouching me.'

The US-based model, who has previously spoken out about the difficulty of finding work as a teenager due to her size, also took to Twitter to show the naysayers how far she's come.

'People told me I couldn't model at this size... watch me werk,' she captioned the behind-the-scenes snap.

Iskra's latest self-love posts come months after she exclusively told ELLE UK about the importance of giving up on perfection.

'The next time you see yourself in a situation and go straight to the excuse 'I can't wear that dress because I have rolls'...do you want to wear that dress? Because if you want to wear that dress and it's a gorgeous gown and you think you're going to shine in it and look confident and rock it, you need to wear that dress,' she said.

We couldn't agree more.
