The reality star swept her blonde locks up in a low ponytail as she strolled down Essex’s high street.

And she kept things covid safe for the outing as she donned a protective black face mask as she walked.

The outing comes after Megan warned her fans that plastic surgery doesn’t boost confidence.

Megan, who has spoken openly about her history with lip and facial fillers, urged her fans to think carefully about whether they are having surgery for the right reasons.

The reality star also added that her various procedures hadn’t helped her “love herself.”

Speak with The sunMegan explained that she first pinned her ears back when she was 17 years old.

She’d had the surgery hoping it would boost her confidence and help her overcome her insecurities, but was disappointed.

In reality, the star said it prompted her to undergo more procedures, including lip fillers, rhinoplasty and a breast augmentation.

She said: “The surgery has helped me reduce the obsessive nature of my insecurities, but while it made me feel happier looking in the mirror, it’s only superficial.

“It didn’t help me love myself because I grew up surrounded by a strong circle of powerful women.”

Megan admitted she decided late last year to get her lip fillers dissolved and the clips in her ears removed.

And since she opted for a natural look, she can embrace her look.

The reality star urged her fans to think long and hard about undergoing surgery, stressing that it won’t be a quick fix for someone struggling with insecurities.

She added: “Surgery is not something that makes you love yourself. You can’t please everyone, so it has to be done for you and only for you.’

Last year, Megan herself revealed that she gave up plastic surgery after her lip fillers dissolved.

She told MailOnline: ‘To be honest I only get Botox these days – I haven’t had my lips done in a year before the villa.

‘Where I managed it all at a young age, it is easy to maintain, filler lasts longer, I only have preventive Botox here and there, but otherwise I can’t really do anything else. I’m really happy with the way I look.’

Megan believes that former islanders, who are now rolling back the work they’ve done, made hasty decisions after gaining fame on the show — and now regret it.

In 2019, Megan also spoke about her plastic surgery during an appearance on Good Morning Britain, urging her young fans to seek therapy rather than resort to drastic cosmetic measures to improve their appearance.

The Love Island star told hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard that she thought getting ‘bigger boobs and a smaller nose’ at age 19 would make her feel more satisfied, but she’s now realizing that real confidence comes from within. .
