Your willingness to put yourself out there (or out here) impresses me to no end. On Friday, we showed you our faces as we looked on our pillows that morning and I asked you to please do the same. A solidarity/curiosity kind of thing. Truly, I wanted to see how beautiful you are just as you are. And guess what? You are!!
You amazed me by how quickly (can you say starting Saturday morning at 6 am sharp?) your self-portaits started pouring in. I'm so excited to show you each other in all of your natural glory. So click through to revel in the beauty of these great un-touched ladies and gentlemen and their stories of how they got that way. Thank you all so so so so much.
If you are inspired tosend us yours too, part 2 is coming (photos keep coming in that we can't not share). And if you would or wouldn't show your morning face, I am interested: why or why not?
Note: Some xoJane editors who weren't in the original post are mixed in here too. (Special thanks to Eric for using this space as a personal ad -- and one that I would Most Definitely respond to!) xo to you all
