7 Body Features That Actually Are Nothing to Be Bothered About
Human beings create stereotypes and then may suffer from them later. Social media is full of photos of perfect Photoshopped bodies. Filters become normal in our life, but everyone is individual and special. You are imperfect, and you are beautiful.
We at Bright Side support the opinion that even wrinkles can make you look cute, and we’re sharing other features that are nothing to be ashamed of.
1. Dark circles under eyes
According to statistics, 1 in 4 Americans has some skin imperfections. This is normal because we’re living human beings that can experience stress. Of course, you can use makeup to hide any imperfections, but remember that you’re beautiful anyway. There is nothing criminal about going out natural from time to time. Your skin also needs some rest.
2. Sparse eyebrows
The shape of the eyebrows is a matter of fashion. Today, thick eyebrows are trendy, and tomorrow you may find people making thin lines out of them like Greta Garbo used to wear.
Sparse eyebrows can cause low self-confidence and emotional distress, according to researchers. But this is, again, the picture that society draws around us and makes us follow certain trends. Whatever natural shape you have, it’s beautiful.
3. Hairy arms
Having hairless arms became a trend in the nineteenth century because of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution that claimed it was a sign of superiority.
Research has shown that, nowadays, the removal of body hair by women can be motivated by social pressure. However, it can be your own choice, and only you decide if you need to remove hair from your body.
4. A droopy, dark knee area
Saggy skin on your knees is absolutely normal and caused by stretching of the skin over the joint. The more you kneel or bend your legs (like if you’re an athlete), the more there’s a chance that the skin will stretch.
5. Short nails
Just imagine if everyone had the same face. It would be boring because people need to have variations and choices. It’s in our psychology. And if you prefer to have long nails, someone may think that short nails are cuter.
6. Thin lips
Different races have different average measurements of the lips. For example, Chinese women have the thickest lower lip, as well as the greatest upper lip volume. There is nothing to be ashamed of if your lips are thin, it just makes you individual.
7. X-shaped and O-shaped legs
The rise in perfectionism doesn’t mean each generation becomes more accomplished. It may mean the opposite, in fact. We’re getting sicker and sadder by trying to reach these ideal standards.
It looks like scientists are trying to tell us that being perfect is not as fun as we think. The same applies to your shape of legs. Nature varies, and this is normal.
What do you like the most about yourself? What do you think about shaving your arms? Is it necessary nowadays?
