ITS FRIDAY + I’m here to rant 💁🏼♀️ if I see one more fashion blogger/inFLueNceR/supplement promoter I am going to flip an absolute lid. 🗯 eg: “soooo before I start my day or even eat breakfast... I grab my FAVE *insert brand here* supplements!!!! this one helps balance my hormones, this one is helping me get my period back, this one lets me push through my workout, this one is a high performance coffee, my collagen, and oh + how could I forget my HERBAL POTIONS FROM MY NATUROPATH 😫” pls stop immediately.
When you have a following of 200k+ young impressionable women, you have a DUTY to disclaim that you don’t NEED to take any of the above, unless directly recommended from a practicing doctor (not a PT). Think about it this way: a 15 year old girl sees this gorgeous *~ body goals ~* influencer, with all the best clothes/works with massive brands/everything exciting in the world. OF COURSE she is going to frantically use your commission discount code. It’s sneaky. How about: “if you are in a predicament like myself and struggling to get your period back, speak to your GP/GYN and they will help create a treatment plan for you” ⁉️⁉️
There is something fundamentally wrong with this, and it’s clever marketing really. Having a clothing line with big brands + boasting a massive social media following IS NOT SYNONYMOUS WITH BEING A HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. It’s embarrassing. If you’re in your early 20s and taking 20 tablets a day for gut health, it might be time to see a GI consultant, instead of a naturopath. Ps: your liver already does a fabulous job at excreting toxins - give the wonders of your body some damn credit. This isn’t normal, it’s concerning + disgusting. Find your commission elsewhere rather than pawning off adolescents potential health issues. I’ll include some examples of this cringe on my stories too. Ok bye 💖
