Fitness blogger Morgan Mikenas probably saves a fortune in razors. She also probably has a lot more free time than many of us. Why? Because in order to promote natural beauty, the fitness blogger has gone an entire year without shaving her body, and here are the results.
“I’m not trying to make all of humanity stop shaving their armpits and leg hair anymore,” said Morgan in a clip she posted to YouTube recently. “I just want to inspire others [to do] what works for you, what makes you feel the most comfortable.” Citing time as the number one reason behind her decision to stop shaving, she was also inspired to let it grow out after being bullied in gym class when she was 11 or 12 for having hairy legs. She decided to embrace her natural beauty instead of subscribing to what society expects of her, and she says that her boyfriend likes it and thinks that she looks beautiful either way. “I want everybody to not feel ashamed of themselves,” she said. “I think it’s unfair that people think they have to be in this culture norm. Just do whatever makes you feel good.” It might not be for everybody, but kudos to Morgan for standing up for what she believes in.
