Morgan Mikenas gave up shaving more than a year ago and in a recent online video she talks about why she came to that decision.
She stopped shaving her legs and armpits in the beginning of 2016 and now proudly shares photos of her natural leg and underarm hair on Instagram. She has more than 8,000 followers on the social media platform, where you can also see her fitness routines alongside body-positive messages. Morgan, who is also an aspiring musician, said her longer hair makes her feel sexy and that her boyfriend thinks she’s ‘beautiful’.
‘Not just women, but everyone! Imagine if everyone just decided that today was the day they loved themselves and embraced every part of themselves. Accepting and loving your body and your “flaws” because you know they are what makes you who you are,” Morgan wrote on Instagram.
“If you are focused on being true to yourself in every moment, you are less concerned what others think, which will lead to peace of mind. When you have nothing to hide and you can freely be yourself, there is a profound peace/confidence you will emanate to the world that will inspire others,’ the fitness blogger added.
