Woman Shows Off Birthmark After Being Told It Makes Her 'Undateable' (Photos)


After years of hiding her birthmark under layers of thick makeup, a young woman dubbed “too ugly to love” is finally baring it all, and the world is taking notice.

Lexxie Harford was born with a large, purple birthmark on her face. After years of torment for her unique feature -- she was asked to star on TLC's “Too Ugly For Love” and Channel 4's “The Undateables” -- the brave beauty decided to proudly show off her skin on social media.

In an album of selfies posted to Imgur, the 23-year-old Harford said,

Harford seemingly hoped by showing off her own unique beauty, she could raise awareness and inspire others to do the same.

Check out the beautiful shots below.

First thing's first: Lexxie Harford is stunning.

She covered her skin with makeup for years, but she recently decided to show the world her true self -- birthmark and all.

According to Harford, people often mistake the mark for a bruise.

She reportedly said, "The whole thing that I want to do is teach people what a birthmark is... so people might feel comfortable showing [theirs] off."

It's clear from these photos Harford is not "too ugly to love."

In fact, the blue-and-green-eyed woman is just the opposite: a true beauty.

Go get 'em, Lexxie!
