While many spent the summer soaking up the sun in order to get as bronzed as possible, or fake baking with some of the best self-tanners on the market, others embraced their natural complexions. 

Model Robyn Lawley falls into the latter camp, according to one of her most recent Instagram posts. The 34-year-old Australian native shared a carousel of bikini pics on Sept. 4, in which she rocked a black bikini. While she looked incredible in the snaps, Lawley also provided some thought-provoking comments in her caption.

“Embracing my natural skin this summer and not fake tanning,” she noted of her choice to embrace her natural skin this summer. “I have to say it was a joy not to have to coat my skin in weird chemicals and baste myself. Its a strange phenomenon we’ve now grown accustomed to. I don’t deny, I love a good instant fake tan and that feeling of being in the sun without the damage. However I don’t like it when I feel like I have to always be tanned in order to wear a bikini. Trying to break that expectation.”

The snaps, captured by photographer Justin Robert Poland, served as new digitals for Lawley’s modeling agency, Ford Models.

Plenty of the the four-time SI Swimsuit model’s 284,000 followers piped in to the comments section with compliments and heart-eye or flame emojis.

“Gotta be honest with you: I fell in love with ALL of these pictures,” one person gushed. “You look astonishingly beautiful 😍😍.”

“Look perfect the way you are. 😍👍🏼,” someone else applauded.

“You look absolutely phenomenal as always 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥,” another fan noted.
