This Beauty Vlogger Is Embracing Her Beard After Shaving It For 14 Years

With the thousands of beauty vloggers out there these days, it's pretty rare to come across a female vlogger who rocks a beard with full confidence. That's what makes Nova Galaxia so brave and inspiring. Her story is unique, and we love that she's so open about her condition.

Nova Galaxia is a beauty vlogger, also known as Nova the Bearded Babe.

She recently opened up about what it was like living with a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and it opened our eyes to what her world was really like.

She explained that PCOS affects everybody differently.

The symptoms vary from person to person, but they include infertility, painful periods, and a hormonal imbalance.

For Nova, this means that she grows facial hair, as well as hair on her chest, breasts, and stomach.

She revealed that she's spent the last 14 years shaving every single day.

She explained that she used to avoid sleepovers as a teenager, and would become panicked if she ever forgot her razor when she went out of town.

Eventually she grew tired of it, and decided to stop shaving altogether.

After just over two months of not shaving, she says that her confidence has spiked.

"I went from living a daily nightmare to being incredibly in love with my hair in just that short amount of time," she wrote.

Over these months, she has learned what it means to be a bearded woman in today's society.

She says that most people couldn't care less, and that those who do care tend to be extremely positive and supportive, which is amazing to hear.

Nova also has a YouTube channel where she shares her makeup tutorials.

It's pretty awesome that she's putting herself out there and creating this content for women dealing with the same condition that she is.

Nova wants society to know that there is no "correct" way to be a "man or a woman," and she wants those living with the same condition to speak loudly about it.

"Go forth and start unlearning all that self-hate. It’s alright to love your body, no matter what that means," she wrote.
