Women put much pressure on ourselves that is why we normally have insecurities, accepting the nature creates much peace than people could though.

Cheers to grow old loving yourself, every tiny bit of it is beautiful as it is :)

I agree that sadly, most of the judgement that makes us insecure about our grey and body hair comes from women...

I always remember the first time my husband saw me plucking my eyebrows to shape them, he asked quite shocked what was I doing... he does not care about my hairy legs, grey hair or thick eyebrows (funny enough, these days people want them thick...)

I grew with standards of beauty quite different to his own as well, so that helped to open my mind and truly accept my natural self.

I also realised how ignorant most men are around women’s beauty routines (and that’s so wicked of society!)

But yeah, I also do some of those things once in a while...

So true! Many times they don't even know the amount of pressure and pain women put themselves in order to look nice for them while they'd care quite less.
