Maura, 30, said she wanted to encourage honesty, confidence, and real life on Instagram, which can be saturated with manipulated photos from reality stars.

In the snap, the Irish beauty rested her head on her hand as her hair fell straight around her face.

She captioned the shot: “RAW … like many of us, there are so many times I stop to read the nasty comments in my DM’s or online & every single time I can’t help but think of the younger generation stepping on the social media bandwagon!

“Us women especially get criticised day in and day out about our body’s, hair, makeup, skin…I could go on forever.

The Love Island star wanted to encourage confidence and honesty on Instagram as she slammed trolls

“I am very lucky to be confident inside & out and I want to empower woman to do the same. We don’t need to use filters or apps, being yourself is more than enough although a minority of the online community sometimes try and convince us otherwise.

“Everyone preaches to be kind to others when really we need to also preach how important it is to be kind to ourselves; be comfortable and proud in your own skin ❤

Maura immediately won praise for the incredible post, as Molly-Mae Hague said: “Love this so much. You’re everything ❤

Shaugna Phillips wrote: “Alllll kinds of feels ❤❤❤

The Love Islander was praised by fans

And Lucie Donlan typed: “My girl❤ beautiful inside and out ❤ this caption is everything 🙏

It was not the first time Maura has given her fans a glimpse of her life behind the camera.

Maura was trying to recreate a picture from her childhood, showing her fans the baby snap before flipping the camera around to her bare face.

Pulling a cheeky smile and with her hair tied loosely back, Maura looked fresh as a daisy without a scrap of mascara or fake tan in sight.
