Individually, we are all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. This March, for International Women’s Day (March 8) I ask you to define what it means to be a woman on your own terms.
Being in the aesthetic industry body positivity and feminism is approached on the daily. So many of my clients begin our skincare and body contouring consultations with “I know this shouldn’t bother me, but”. Are you kidding me? Who says it should or should not bother you? Is the body positivity movement making you feel guilty because you want to address some concerns of cellulite, stubborn fat, acne scars, or stretch marks?
I’ve actually had clients tell me they are afraid of having laser hair removal for fear that people will believe they are not true feminists. I’m here to tell you that it is okay for you to decide what being a woman means on your own terms. The enemy is not the aesthetic treatment, the feminists, or the media; but guilt itself. No woman should be told she can’t make changes to her own body. Live your authentic life. Reshape the conversation. Stand up for yourself. And get laser hair removal if you are sick and tired of razor burn and shaving every day so you won’t be itchy!
