This commitment to authenticity extends beyond her social media presence. As the founder of the makeup brand Rare Beauty, Gomez champions self-acceptance and realistic beauty standards. This was further emphasised during her appearance at an SXSW panel titled ‘Mindfulness Over Perfection: Getting Real On Mental Health’.

During the panel discussion, Gomez openly discussed the impact of her 2022 documentary ‘My Mind & Me’. Reflecting on the film’s exploration of mental health, she acknowledged the need for self-compassion. “It’s tough to hear how I spoke about myself at the beginning,” she admitted. This introspection highlights her journey towards self-acceptance and the importance of self-kindness.

The concept of mental health awareness isn’t new for Gomez. She and her mother, Mandy Teefey, co-founded Wondermind – an online community focused on mental well-being.  Established in 2021, this platform aims to provide a safe space for individuals to discuss their mental health struggles.

By embracing her natural beauty and promoting self-acceptance, Selena Gomez is setting a positive example for her fans. Her journey towards self-kindness serves as an inspiration, reminding us all of the importance of mental well-being and the power of authenticity.
