Selena Gomez flaunted her bangin’ bikini body and weight loss in a vacation Instagram photo. Selena celebrated the New Year with friends on a beach holiday with friends.
Selena, who has lost more than 10 pounds recently, looked gorgeous in a strapless bikini that spotlighted her slender torso. Selena said being fat-shamed after gaining a few pounds last year inspired her new album, “Revival.”
Selena said Revival is an anthem for her renewed self-confidence after undergoing chemotherapy for lupus and being brutally fat-shamed for gaining weight.
Selena, who was diagnosed with lupus in 2012, took a break from work in 2013 to get chemotherapy for the autoimmune disease lupus, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
“I was diagnosed with lupus, and I’ve been through chemotherapy,” said Gomez.” That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke.”
Symptoms of lupus include chronic fatigue, joint pain, headaches and fever. Selena was furious that tabloids ran stories claimed she took the break to treat her alleged alcoholism and drug addiction.
“I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re *ssholes,’” said Gomez, who’s the new rep for Pantene shampoos and conditioners. “I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.”
Selena looks amazing after losing weight, and told Yahoo her beauty and makeup secrets are simple but effective. Gomez makes sure she washes her skin really well to prevent breakouts and wrinkles.
“I like to have a good morning regimen,” said Gomez. “I use my Clarisonic in the shower with the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Skin Renewing Peel Wash. I do that maybe four or five times a week, so my skin has a chance to breathe before all the madness starts.”
Selena continues: Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster on your cheekbones and around your eyes helps make you look alive.”
She added: But what’s really great is First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy. If you get dark circles, it’s the sh*t. I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb.
“The Biore Deep Cleansing Strips make me feel really accomplished when I do them, too. Plus, they work!”
Gomez takes these simple steps every morning to keep her skin glowing and smooth.
“When I don’t get a chance to do the whole routine in the morning, it really bums me out,” she said. “It kind of affects your mood when you don’t take enough time to pamper yourself.”
Selena is naturally gorgeous, but uses her favorite makeup products to look her best every day and for the red carpet.
“I learned from my nanna and my mom is that less is more,” she said. “You never want to look like you’re caked in anything. Most of the time I like to look matte, unless I’m on a red carpet. I use Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation in golden beige every day.
Selena added: “I’ll follow that with MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in medium, Instant Brow Pencil from Benefit in medium to dark, Gimme Brow from Benefitin medium/deep, then the Body Shop Baked to Last Bronzer in golden bronze. That’s the look!”
