Influencer Shows Off Her Mustache And Pictures With No Filters

Joanna encourages women to love themselves as they are

Going through different eras and changing beauty standards, women have always been part of the discussion about body acceptance.

Whether feeling too fat, or too skinny, having the perfect symmetrical facial features or not, many things might make women feel unworthy of themselves. Which is not true! You are worthy and beautiful, just the way you are!

Joanna Kenny is an esthetician, and also an influencer on social media with thousands of followers. She shares her photos and videos motivating women to accept and love their natural bodies as they are.

“What’s becoming more frequent is people’s desire to achieve the same ‘poreless’ skin as their social media filter. This warped perspective of what skin should look like creates unobtainable skincare goals and any real progress is overlooked. It’s my responsibility to manage their expectations and remind them they have pores and not flaws.”

“Me highlighting my mustache hair is not me saying ‘Hey, you SHOULD find this attractive.’ Instead, it is serving as a reminder that they don’t HAVE to remove their facial hair to be seen as feminine. In 2022 a woman’s existence is still largely centered around how attractive men find them. I want people to make choices about their bodies without fear of judgment,” said Joanna.

She said: “There are people who have a hormonal imbalance or have to take medication that makes their hair grow excessively. And right now they can’t keep up with the societal pressure to remove or bleach every single hair to fit in. There are also people that can’t afford to have their hair removed professionally and DIY methods aggravate their skin.”

Joanna encourages people not to use filters in their pictures or videos. When looking at yourself with filters, you may start comparing your real face and get insecure.

On the other hand, catfishing online will not hide the real you from your everyday friends.

“There are people who struggle with acne or facial hair and who will read the hate comments. These will be all the confirmation they need that they won’t be accepted as the human that they are. I’m not sorry if visible facial hair makes people uncomfortable and I certainly don’t care if men find me less attractive. I do not make decisions about my body to please other people and no one should.”
