In April, Union and Zaya posted a message together about the challenges of being a teenage girl in the social media age. They encouraged their followers to remove “toxic beauty advice” from their timelines. In partnership with Dove, they posted a short video clip explaining their part in promoting self-love to the masses.

“If a post tells you, you’re not pretty enough, unfollow. If someone says, natural hair is ugly, mute. If you see anything that makes you feel like you’re not beautiful, simply remove it from your feed. I won’t follow anyone into thinking I’m not beautiful,” Zaya noted. “We don’t want you to either.”
