A WOMAN with a full beard has silenced cruel critics by embracing her facial hair, which her boyfriend says he loves.

Alma Torres, 24, was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) at the age of 16, which caused her to grow a thick crop of facial hair.

Alongside her hair growth, Alma struggles with the other symptoms of PCOS, which include weight gain and infertility.

But after spending years hiding her condition, she now says she is ready to put down the razor and embrace her facial hair.

Alma, who works as a photographer, is supported by her boyfriend of five years, Taylor, who used to help her tweezer out any facial fuzz.

But Taylor, 22, thinks his girlfriend’s “beautiful” beard is nothing to be ashamed of, despite the cruel comments she has faced as a result of her condition.

Alma, from the Bronx, in New York, said: “I have been called ‘ugly’, others have said ‘I should kill myself’.

But Alma puts these cruel comments down to the insecurities felt by the trolls themselves, and hopes that she can act as a role model for other women with similar conditions.

You go, girl! Keep shining like the bright star you are!
