Whether it鈥檚 sexy glam on the red carpet or copping J.Lo鈥檚 glitzy style on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Modern Family star Ariel Winter is always brimming with confidence. Now, the actress is sharing some of her body-positive advice so we can be just as fearless as she is, even at the beach.

In a recent interview with Refinery 29, Winter revealed that she dons a full face of makeup for her oceanside glam, haters be darned. 鈥淚鈥檓 definitely a makeup at the beach person, and I don鈥檛 care if people think I look ridiculous 鈥 it鈥檚 my beach day!鈥 the sitcom star said. 鈥淲hether I want to go natural or with makeup or in sweatpants, that鈥檚 up to me.鈥 Yes, girl, preach!

Being confident in her own skin is something the young star learned to do in the spotlight. Two years ago, Winter underwent a highly publicized breast-reduction surgery, a procedure that helped her conquer body image issues that rose from having a 32F bra size. 鈥淏efore then, I didn鈥檛 feel like myself, and everyone was so focused on my cleavage, so when I got the breast reduction it helped me feel so much better about my body,鈥 she said.

In addition to her physical changes, Winter says she鈥檚 (slowly) learning to embrace the curves that once caused her agony. 鈥淚 used to have full-scale meltdowns in bathing suit shops because there was nothing I could find to wear. I always felt like crap about myself,鈥 she admitted. 鈥淚t鈥檚 gotten a little better, but it鈥檚 still definitely hard. Like, my best friend, she鈥檚 super tall and skinny and she鈥檒l wear the same bathing suit as me, but people will automatically look at me and call me out as a slut or write headlines about 鈥楢riel Winter鈥檚 cleavage.鈥 Meanwhile, they look at her like, 鈥極h she looks so cute!鈥 But I鈥檝e learned to not care about that as much. I鈥檓 comfortable in a bathing suit, scars and all.鈥

After all, at the end of the day, she makes a brilliant point about what going to the beach is actually all about, and no, it鈥檚 not about your outfit. 鈥淧eople are so stressed out about how they鈥檙e going to look in their bathing suits that they forget to go to the beach because they want to go to the beach, which defeats the whole purpose,鈥 she said. 鈥淭he beach should be a safe space.鈥

What do you think of her advice? It鈥檚 pretty great, right? Tweet us @BritandCo.
