    I subscribe to these ridiculous standards... but this video just pisses me off. Like not the video itself but the fact that society forces these beauty standards on us. I hate that I feel insecure if I missed a couple strands of hair on my legs. It's stupid and I wish I didnt care 😒

    1:40 This is so inaccurate. At home lasers do NOT work on dark skin. The lasers could not tell the difference between dark hair and dark skin so they were not safe for brown skin, or even for tan skin! Safe lasers for darker skin is very new and it is not available for at home use yet.
