Martha Hunt often feels insecure about her runway walk due to her struggles with scoliosis.
The American model launched her career in 2007 and has since gone on to strut her stuff for the likes of Balmain, Carolina Herrera, Givenchy, Victoria’s Secret, and Versace.
Yet, in spite of her experience, Martha has now shared that she knows she will never have a perfect walk, due to her battle with scoliosis, a medical condition in which a person’s spine has a sideways curve.
“Having scoliosis and modelling has been a little bit of a challenge because of so much of modelling requires walking the runway,” she stated in a video detailing her beauty regime for Vogue.com. “And one of my biggest insecurities is actually that one of my legs is longer than the other, so my gait isn’t perfectly symmetrical. So, that’s one thing that I’ve had to deal with and kind of overcome those insecurities. But I think it’s important that we open up these conversations and talk about the things that make us insecure because if you want to talk badly about my walk or my gait or whatever, you can’t troll me about that. That’s just who I am.”
Elsewhere in the clip, Martha explained that one way she keeps back pain at bay is by dabbing on some of Wildflower’s CBD + Healing Stick. The formula features therapeutic essential oils like arnica and wintergreen to help combat inflammation.
“I frequently experience back pain, like many of you. And I like to use a little CBD stick. This one has eucalyptus in it. So, it’s like having a spa day while you’re getting ready… I like to put it on while my serum is absorbing. It kind of reminds me of Tiger Balm but it feels even more holistic,” the 30-year-old added.
