Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and no body part should be an exception. Yet noses are still picked upon over and over in the beauty industry. No wonder so many of us feel so insecure about it.

But 19-year-old Holly Hopkins got fed up with the so-called “ideal” beauty standards that promote polished side profiles. The truth is, they’re all too rare in real life. “It’s okay if your nose looks like all the 'before' pictures,” she stated in her now-viral tweet that got 169.4K likes. Many more people came forward celebrating their unique noses for what they truly are—totally charming, 100% natural and, and thanks to wise moms and dads, rhinoplasty-free.

Let’s take a look at these beautiful profiles down below that hopefully will serve as an inspiration to others who still secretly dread that one camera angle.

This woman tweeted her nose that "looks like before pictures" and it went viral

And it was not an easy thing to do

Bored Panda contacted Holly Hopkins, a British criminology student and author of the viral tweet, and asked her about the "nose positive" initiative.

Holly told us that most importantly, everyone has to tell ourselves we’re beautiful. “Even if you struggle doing that, we need to remember we don’t need to be considered ‘beautiful’ in order to be deserving of respect from society,” she said.

The 19-year-old is convinced that “no one analyses your features the way we do to ourselves,” and it’s us who are our own worst critics.

Holly, whose tweet went viral with 15.3K retweets and 169.4K likes, received so many messages from men and women. “Lots of people have thanked me for posting it, but I don’t think I’ve really done anything special.” But she feels grateful to anyone who’s taken the time to message her and everyone who has been kind to people posting their photos under her tweet. “It was so lovely to see so much positivity,” she said.

Cant believe women who look like the ones here are also made uncomfortable about their appearance. Does it stop anywhere ?

Unfortunately, Holly still believes that the "ideal" beauty standard exists. “We see it in Hollywood and in the media,” she says, but she thinks that “we’re doing a good job at breaking it down” even if there’s still a lot more we need to do.

You look strong and exotic. Don't give in to *their* idea of beauty. Who are THEY anyway.

It's such a brilliant compliment to the rest of your features! I don't know you at all, but I'm positive there's only one way for you to have been put together and it is perfection, clearly.

I am sorry that someone in your past made you hate your nose. As a short wide blocky lady with a lot of personality and not enough of a filter on my outside voice, it's ok to be different. IT is IMPORTANT to be you. It is VITAL that we learn to love ourselves inside and out. My standard for beauty is not everyone's standard for beauty, so I can not expect myself to be beautiful to everyone who sees me, but I am beautiful to those who think I am beautiful, and loved by all those that matter to me.
