Whether they're showing off their natural hair or proudly displaying their scars, there's been a huge wave of women embracing their natural beauty on social media - and it's bloody brilliant.

One natural social media trend we can't quite get enough of is ladies showcasing their freckles using hashtags such as #freckleslikemeghan, #frecklesfordays and #frecklegang, inspired by Meghan Markle.

And it seems that another famous face has been inspired to jump on board the bandwagon, with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards taking to Instagram to share a makeup-free snap with her freckles proudly on display.

She wrote an inspiring caption to accompany the photo, saying she doesn't "feel I need to hide them anymore". Bravo!

"I was always insecure about the freckles on my face. Over the last couple of years I’ve started to embrace them and don’t feel I need to hide them anymore. “Embrace your individuality. Love what you love without worrying about judgement""

We think she looks INCREDIBLE, and we can't wait to see more of them. It isn't the first time Pezza has got her freckles out for us, showing she's been on this journey of acceptance for a little while.

Her followers were quick to praise the star for embracing her natural beauty, with many hailing her 'beautiful', 'naturally stunning' and 'an inspiration to us all'.

We're delighted to see that celebrities are embracing their natural beauty and we hope it inspires other ladies to ditch the makeup every once in a while.
