Julie, 37, New York, USA

 

Why are our very own faces so foreign and ugly to us?! I hate that. I myself have never felt beautiful. I still think I am weird looking, I just no longer care what anyone thinks about it.

It’s so funny (and sad) to me that at 37 years old, and many, many women younger and older than myself, are learning to fall back in love with themselves in their completely natural, unfiltered state since we’re quarantined and not quite out and about as much in public. It’s sad that as a society we’re told and sold products to “improve” our faces and so we hide what we think is not beautiful, with concealers and eyelashes, and lipsticks. It feels really invigorating to fall back in love with my natural self and not say “woof” every time I look in the mirror.
