OK, I’m just going to come right out and say it. Lockdown made me dislike my face.


I know that’s not a very on brand thing to say, that self-hatred is both distinctly unfeminist and very 1995. But the truth is the truth, and I can’t pretend that 18 months of peering at my own face on Zoom has done wonders for my self-esteem. Quite the opposite, in fact. And it seems I’m far from alone.
