Camila Mendes Reminds Fans Of The Importance Of Self-Care

Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes is reminding fans of something we should always remember: nobody is perfect! The actress, who’s recovering from an eating disorder, recently opened up about the importance of self-care and the importance of incorporating body-positivity into your life. Camila also talked about her friendship with fellow eating disorder survivor, and editor, Christina Grasso, who went on to found The Chain, a not-for-profit peer support and mentorship program for women in the fashion and entertainment industries who are struggling with, or recovering from, an eating disorder.

“Even though I’ve been crazy busy and on the other side of the continent, and even though I’m quite possibly the worst texter I know, Christina frequently checks in to see how I’ve been doing, and through that alone I’ve learned to appreciate the value of peer support when recovering from an eating disorder,” Camila writes.

“Having that constant reminder to love my body (especially on instagram where my feed is full of perfect pictures and ‘perfect bodies,’ and especially being in front of a camera every day playing Veronica, who adores her tight mini skirts) is just enough to clear my head of all the negative voices that creep in every once in a while.”

I met @thepouf at a gala for Project Heal, where we bonded over our experiences being in the fashion/entertainment industry while recovering from an eating disorder. Even though I’ve been crazy busy and on the other side of the continent, and even though I’m quite possibly the worst texter I know, Christina frequently checks in to see how I’ve been doing, and through that alone I’ve learned to appreciate the value of peer support when recovering from an eating disorder. Christina recently co-founded The Chain, a nonprofit organization that offers peer support for women in fashion & entertainment who struggle with eating disorders. I’ve been following @thechainnyc – and having that constant reminder to love my body (especially on instagram where my feed is full of perfect pictures and “perfect bodies,” and especially being in front of a camera every day playing Veronica, who adores her tight mini skirts) is just enough to clear my head of all the negative voices that creep in every once in a while. Our minds can get so contaminated with endless images of perfection, and even if you don’t suffer from an eating disorder, it can’t hurt to incorporate a little body positivity into your routine. Take care of yourself in every way that you can🧚🏽‍♀️
