When it comes to beauty, there’s no one size that fits all. Thanks to the rise of the skin and body positive movements, more and more people are standing up to normative standards of beauty by embracing their true, natural and authentic selves both online and IRL. We join photographer Sophie Harris-Taylor exploring skin, the final frontier to be embraced by the body positive movement.

In this episode, we meet model and activist Louisa Northcote as she opens up about the realities of living with acne and why she wants more people to embrace the skin they’re in. Joining her to reflect on her own journey, we meet photographer Sophie Harris-Taylor, as she introduces us to her most personal project yet Epidermis — a series of intimate portraits of people with acne. Unrealistic beauty standards are dead, it’s time to #freethepimple.
