A Woman Stopped Shaving Facial Hair And Shares How It Changed Her Life

It is studied that women can develop excessive facial hair due to higher-than-normal levels of androgen hormones. These hormones include testosterone and androstenedione. When women have excessive facial hair, they tend to get rid of it constantly. Whether you shave it or wax it, hair removal can be quite a process. What happens if you just go all-natural? 

Eldina, a 31-year-old lady from Copenhagen, decided to stop shaving her facial hair. She shared that some men, particularly teenagers stared at her brows like they were a “third head” and that made her embarrassed. She documented her hair removal journey on her Instagram and gained thousands of followers. Eldina got annoyed with herself for removing her facial hair for a long time. One day, she thought about it: “Why do I have to?”. Then, she was confident in herself instead of trying to please everyone.

Below is Eldina’s story that can be inspiring to us all.

As getting older, Eldina grew frustrated by the fact that women are expected to spend more time and money on maintaining their looks than men are. She found this extremely unfair and wonder why women need to endure idiotic rituals. Eventually, this frustration got too much for her, so she decided to give up on removing her hair.

She shared: “I wouldn’t say it’s something that happened suddenly, but I became increasingly frustrated with having to remove hair for no apparent reason. I see men go outside without removing hair, so why do I have to?”. She felt that she should spend her time much better.

How Eldina felt

Women felt like they must meet certain standards to be beautiful, but Eldina really wanted to challenge that.

She said that many women were under the pressure to remove all their body hair, even though they didn’t want to. They were bullied for having facial hair. As for Eldina, she was surprised when geting a lot of attention for having prominent eyebrows.

Being true to yourself is important

Eldina used to get rid of her excessive eyebrow and upper lip hair. However, after letting it grow out for quite some time, she’s really felt much more confident and wanted other women to feel the same way. She said: “I think my advice would be, that if people don’t like you, you can always find new friends. You can always find other groups of people who will accept and value your thoughts and feelings. And do you really want to be liked for someone you’re not?”

Beauty standards are always changing

The current beauty standards might be not for you but that’s okay. They are unrealistic and they change all the time. For her, these standards could be completely irrelevant in 10 years.

Don’t be afraid to do what you want

If you’re wondering whether you should embrace your natural facial hair, Eldina wants you to ask yourself: “I think it’s always a good idea to reflect on why you’re doing what you’re doing. And is it what you want, or are you doing it because of fear?”
