DEALING WITH STRETCH MARKS
Andi has previously showcased her stretch marks on Instagram, displaying fearlessness in embracing them.
In a post on May 2020, she openly admitted that she doesn't shy away from flaunting them on social media and made it clear that she doesn't try to erase them.
For Andi, these marks serve as a constant reminder of the incredible strength and beauty of a woman's body.
Her full post read: "I often get questions about how I got rid of my stretch marks. I don’t know why because as you can see in this photo (just like in a couple of others), I never did!
"With consistent, exercise, eating healthy, and some trusty argain oil, I believe it improved over time, but I’m aware that it will never actually go away.
"Maybe with the right angle and good lighting, (or with a super cute distraction like the one Im carrying here LOL), it sometimes seems like it isn’t there.
"but I’ve had them since having Ellie, and I know that as much as they may become less obvious over time, they will never really go away.
"But just because we have these belly marks, doesn’t mean we aren’t allow to wear your favorite cropped tops and bikinis anymore!
"I’ve grown to be more comfortable and proud of them because hey!
"This body has done amazing things. It carried my 2 beautiful girls for 9 months, and gave birth to them safely too! I hope you guys will realise that too [emojis]
