“You are as beautiful as you feel. It took me a long time to understand this.
Now through Cancer I still feel beautiful even though it has taken a lot in terms of physical beauty or what is considered as such in our culture.
Many times women feel ugly without their hair, eyebrows and lashes. But that is why we have wigs and fake lashes and brows.
They hide because they don’t feel desirable and feel no longer feminine.
Skin takes a hit during chemo, it stains dark sometimes and we may get a grey hue. Hands and feet can darken.
But there are ways to offset all of this.
I keep getting told how beautiful I am and I appreciate it.
But I work at it.
Here is my pic with no make up and no wig.
I am putting it out there because I am no longer afraid of what I look like, what matters is who I am!” Uzma Yunus
No make up no filter
