Maya Jama might be the face of “Love Island” with an array of gorgeous villa outfits, but that doesn’t mean that she’s not susceptible to the beauty woes that come with being a woman. Namely: facial hair removal.
Taking to Instagram on 26 July, the TV presenter posted a carousel of gorgeous images in a black leather dress. The halter-neck number showed plenty of sideboob, as the MIJ Masks founder showcased her new candle lights hair colour.
But at the end of her carousel, Jama posed for a real af mirror selfie with hair removal cream on her upper lip. “Changed my hair ft Nair,” she wrote beneath the pic. Trust us, girl, we’ve all been there. Fans quickly flocked to the comments to dub Jama as the “realest” for breaking down taboos when it comes to women’s self-care routines. “Lifetime of Nair pending,” said one follower, whilst another said: “The last pic!!! You’re a real sort!”
Of course, removing facial hair is perfectly normal (as is choosing to leave it there), but if you find yourself removing your facial hair more often than not, or dealing with excessive hair growth in other areas – like the face, chest, back, or your bum – then it’s worth booking an appointment with your GP as it could be a sign of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
The TV host has been praised for her down-to-earth approach in her professional and personal life. Despite being a British Vogue cover girl, she’s also the face of affordable beauty brand Rimmel London and has talked candidly about wanting to fall in love with a best friend. We love that Jama is keeping it real for her followers, and can’t wait to see more of her breaking beauty taboos.
