Demi regularly waxes lyrical about the importance of having a positive attitude towards your body and has previously noted that when it comes to beauty, she favours a natural look rather than “pounds of make-up.” "What makes me sad is to see so many girls on Instagram with their faces painted, literally, and the contouring tutorials and the lip tutorials," she told Refinery29. "I had a moment when I thought, 'Are my lips not big enough?' And, no, I have great lips. While it's great to learn, some of these tutorials make you think you have to put pounds of make-up on and that's not the case." "I love to empower girls to go make-up free," she later continued. "Or to wear a very fresh look and save the dramatic looks for night and the weekend."

Over the years, Demi has been open about her battle with depression, substance abuse, and eating disorders, and last month, celebrated five years of being sober. Last month, she took to Instagram to thank her friends and fans for all their support. Sharing a picture of an app with the milestone marked across it, the singer posted an inspirational message to reflect on her tough journey. She wrote: "So grateful. It's been quite the journey. So many ups and downs. So many times I wanted to relapse but sat on my hands and begged God to relieve the obsession."
