A 36-year-old woman, who has accepted her facial hair, took to TikTok to show off her beard.
The woman, who goes by the name “Peekaboo Pumpkin” on TikTok, revealed that she has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
As a result, she has excess hair around her chin.
But after years of removing her facial hair, she learned to embrace it and decided to let it grow into a full beard.
“Laser hair removal didn’t work for it. It took me years to be in the place where my facial hair wouldn’t bother me,” she said in a comment.
She revealed that instead of shaving it off completely, she now uses a pair of mini scissors to trim the beard.
She braids the hair or uses straighteners to make it less “crusty”.
She has been hailed for her confidence, with many women who have beards telling her that they are not as bold as she is.
