Scars are in a beauty no-man’s land. They’re imperfections that aren’t conversation topics (or heavily commercialized) the way wrinkles and grey hairs are. Basically we don’t talk about them, even though they’re universal and come with very personal stories. While very literally they are wounds, they also represent the power and fragility of the human body. They are evidence of a mistake, a life well-lived, a dedication to a craft…they truly make you, you.
We invited Sophie, Jane and Teaunna to the studio, three women who have scars of totally different origins, to talk with us about how they got their scars, how they feel about them and how their relationship with their own bodies were impacted as a result. Oh, and Emily’s pup Fitz makes an appearance – he might not have a scar but he’s cute enough to make the cut!
