‘The Bachelor”s Bekah Martinez Hasn’t Shaved Her Legs In A Year Out Of ‘Self-Love’



She is showing off her hairy legs as she heads out to a red carpet event.
“I stopped shaving my legs and armpits about a year ago as a practice of self-love. I grew up HATING the hair on my body. I was teased for it, snuck my mom’s razor at age 9, and would pray that God would remove my hair from the neck down. I would panic every time I got invited to go swimming and hadn’t shaved,” 

“It’s not about ‘not believing in shaving’, it’s about believing I AM BEAUTIFUL, ATTRACTIVE AND ‘FEMININE’ NO MATTER WHERE I HAVE HAIR ON MY BODY. It’s about showing girls you don’t have to listen when society tells you your natural features are ugly or gross. It has taken months to get used to it.”

She received nasty comments about her body on Instagram, which don’t help her in her self-love journey, but she’s trying to stay positive.
“Remember, if someone has a problem with the way you look, that’s an issue with THEIR mentality, not YOUR body.”
