Anna Geary opens up about insecurities before competing on Dancing With The Stars


Anna Geary has revealed she battled with huge insecurities ahead of her appearance on Dancing With The Stars Ireland.

The former Cork camogie star made it to the final of the 2018 season of the popular RTE show, and exuded confidence as each week went by.

But now, the beauty has opened up about how she felt hugely insecure about her skin, and how she overcame those feelings.

“My skin is quite temperamental, if I make any sudden changes in my stress levels or hormones or diet, my skin will react to that,” the beauty told the Irish Mirror.

“As a person who would be seen as very confident, I have insecurities like everybody else.

“You force yourself to be energetic, to be positive, but my skin was definitely an insecurity for me.”

“I felt ‘I can’t go on Dancing with the Stars and feel vulnerable’ because I had enough to be worrying remembering steps and wearing revealing costumes, not to mind can they see those spots.

“I had neglected my skin in my 20s, two years on I get people saying to me you’ve got lovely skin.

“I’m laughing thinking I can’t believe someone is complimenting my skin and I was never confident.”

Anna who is one of four coaches on Ireland’s Fittest Family, says staying active was a huge part of helping her to regain her confidence.

“For my wedding my skin was my priority, I didn’t want to look as skinny as I could but I wanted to feel good.

“Exercise makes me feel so good, everybody needs accountability, my friend Clare would train with me and check in with me.


“She helped me on the evenings I thought it was too cold and I was too tired, I just started saying to myself, just do 20 minutes, it’s better than no minutes.”
