A girl named Sophia Ridlington shared a heartbreaking truth of her skin condition. Diagnosed with psoriasis, her skin became covered with red, scaly bumps all over her body, including her face.
“My ex-boyfriend didn’t stick by me and it broke my heart at the time; he didn’t appreciate me for who I was,” she said. “I used to wear long sleeves or long trousers every single time I left the house. It’s very difficult to have people staring at you as if you’re different to them.”
Since then, Sophia has studied cosmetology to become a professional makeup artist. Today, she is much more confident in her skin than she was as a teenager. She is sharing images of her natural face to inspire others to embrace their so-called imperfections.
The reason for sharing this story is we should not base our judgments of ourselves and others on these comparisons.
So this is for all the ladies out there, natural beauty goes beyond standards and cliches – stop putting to much makeup.
Natural beauty is diverse, imperfect and found in the unique features that make us distinctively attractive.
