Lily Collins shares heartfelt message for #mentalhealth awarenessweek

We’re not crying. You’re crying.

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / May 22 2020

In honour of #mentalhealthawarenessweek in the U.S., Lily Collins chose to share her own mental health journey with a lengthy Instagram post. Alongside a photo of herself as a teen, her caption spoke to her history with eating disorders:

“On the surface, this was a happy, confident girl. On the inside, I was struggling with so much insecurity and doubt within myself. At this age throughout my late teens and into my twenties, it felt really difficult to speak out about my internal struggles — with family, with relationships, eating disorders and overall uncertainty.”

Lily reminds her followers that they are not alone and that it’s okay to ask for help if you’re struggling with mental health issues, “we’re here to get each other through these moments not judge one another for having them. So if I could remind that younger me of one thing it would be that I’m never alone. We’re never alone.”

She finishes by saying, “let’s give ourselves and each other a little boost of encouragement this week and everyday moving forward and try our hardest not to judge one another too harshly.”

Nicely said.

Need to relax? Selena Gomez shared her self-care routine and it’s *chefs kiss*.

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
