Many people, especially moms, may be self-conscious about their stretch marks but content creator Zeinab Harake has long embraced her "tiger stripes."
In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Zeinab addressed her pregnancy stretch marks and said she never really felt insecure about these "imperfections."
Zeinab pointed to an area around her bosom with visible stretch marks as she confidently told PEP.ph, "Okay lang, meron ako niyan! Proud ako sa kanya."
Zeinab reminded other moms to not let their pregnancy stretch marks make them feel self-conscious.
She said, "Wala dapat ikahiya yung mga mothers diyan. Kasama yan sa love na ibinibigay natin sa mga anak natin."
PEP.ph caught up with the 24-year-old vlogger on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at the thanksgiving party hosted by Anna Magkawas in celebration of the success of her business Luxe Beauty and Wellness Group.
MAINTAINING HER FIGURE
Zeinab proudly revealed that she has gained her appetite back.
She has recently been flaunting her figure by posting swimsuit photos on Instagram.
It can be recalled that Zeinab had a dramatic weight loss early in 2022 after suffering from anxiety and depression following her miscarriage of Baby Moon.

Fortunately, Zeinab was able to recover from the traumatic experience and now eats more healthily.
Zeinab said, "Ngayon, kung alam niyo lang, sobrang lakas ko kumain! As in, lamon!
"Malala! Sa mga inasal, totoo! Kapag mga inasal, yung kanin, nakaka-three rice ako.
"Sa bahay lagi ako kumakain!"
She added, "Hindi din ako nagda-diet kasi nga parang recently ko lang naramdaman na malaya kang kumain kahit na gaano pa kadaming pagkain ang gusto mo.
"As long as may pang-maintain kang pampa-slim ng body mo."

Although she is starting to gain more weight, Zeinab maintains her figure by drinking cups and cups of slimming coffee.
She said, "Ang lagi ko iniinom, sa morning, kape ako tapos bago ako matulog.
"Tapos pagka-minsan, sumusobra-sobra lalo na nasa work kami, ginagawa kong tubig, nasa tumbler yung coffee."
Zeinab further revealed she hasn't gone back to working out yet since her body still can't handle strenuous movements.
"Ngayon, hindi ako nagwo-work out lalo na yung nangyari sa akin last time. Medyo may binat kasi ako e.
"So hindi ako puwedeng magbuhat ng mabibigat. Inasa ko lang lahat sa Luxe Slim talaga."
