Woman with beard: her facial hair would make most men jealous!
Perfect smooth skin is a dream of every woman. But approaching to the ideal takes a good deal of money, a lot of cosmetics and dozens of sophisticated devices. Nevertheless, some ladies choose extra body hair, and the reason is not only in saving the time.
Harnaam Kaur, model and Instagram sensation, noticed the hair on her face at the age of 11. It turned out that a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome was to blame.
You’ve just set your eyes on a woman who was so abused that she felt the need to be free of the person that she is. To become someone else in order to fit in or blend. I used to hate everything about my skin. Even thinking about it and writing about it now makes me sick. I know my skin is watching the words that I write about her. Fact is, the things that I was made to feel ashamed about are the exact same things that I wholeheartedly love and adore! MY stretch marks, MY scars, MY hair, MY vitiligo, MY EVERYTHING! That what we wish we could’ve changed when we were young, is exactly what makes us who we are when we are older! We mature and realise what is important in life! What legacy will you leave behind? What will people recognise or know you for? How are you helping to change your world? In my skin I win, I conquer, I am Free! In my skin I am complete! #inmyskin @wearestoosh #inourskin
She was often bullied at school for her hairy face. As a result, she started to spend a lot of time on shaving, bleaching, depilation and other procedures that helped to hide the skin defects.
At the age of 16 Harnaam converted to Sikhism. This religion doesn’t encourage the cutting of body hair. It was the turning point in the girl’s life.
Despite she no longer practices the religion, she decided not to shave the hair off her face. Two years ago she was awarded a Guinness World Record for being the Youngest female with a full beard. “I hope those who read or see my record can take away positivity, inspiration and realise that no matter who you are or what you look like, you are officially amazing!” she pointed out. She is proud to be a real inspiration for other women.
“I want other women to find the strength that I have. If I had any message it would be to live the way you want – it’s your journey and it’s your life.”
“All that matters to me at the moment is that I love myself. I love my beard and all my other little quirks – my tattoos, my scars, stretch marks and blemishes.”
