TV show hosts go makeup-free

Six US Today show personalities stripped off for the cameras on Monday, going sans makeup in order to start a conversation about body image.

The hosts, including the men, discussed with celebrity physician Dr Mehmet Oz what it felt like to be on-air without their usual pre-show beauty treatments and how they felt about their appearance.

The hosts said they felt “naked” and asked viewers to tweet their own makeup-free pics to support the #LoveYourSelfie promotion.
