A fitness blogger has shared photographs of her hairy legs and armpits in the hope it will inspire others to embrace their natural beauty.
Morgan Mikenas has more than 7,000 followers on Instagram, where she posts about her incredible fitness regime and transformation after she took up bodybuilding.
The fitness fan recalled an incident at school, when she was aged 11 or 12, where other girls laughed at her hairy legs while she was wearing gym shorts.
Morgan said she was so upset, she ran straight home to her mum and cried – asking if she could teach her how to shave.
But last year, she decided she wanted to embrace the natural look and ditched razors for good. She hasn’t shaved her armpits or legs since the beginning of 2016.
In a video posted to her YouTube channel entitled ‘Why I Don’t Shave’, she flashes her armpit and says she wants to explain to her followers why she doesn’t remove body hair.
“I guess my number one reason why I stopped was that it just took so much time. It took so much of my time to get in the shower and have to shave everything and then wash my hair and then wash my body it’s just like another thing.
“I just, one day, was like ‘why am I doing this anymore? This just takes so much time.’
“After I let it do its thing and grow out I just realised ‘oh hey this is kind of nice’. It started getting super soft.
“When you shave your body hair it’s prickly and itchy and uncomfortable. So I guess that’s another reason why.
