In your lifetime, beauty marks have likely been seen as a sign of, well, beauty. This is partially dictated by Hollywood’s elite. Cindy Crawford, for example, is notorious for her iconic “blemish.” Yet, even she considered having surgery to get rid of it. “I would get teased by the other kids in school, so I definitely wanted to get it removed,” the supermodel told Vogue. These days, Crawford realizes that her well-placed spot helps her remain recognizable and unique. It also helps other women with beauty marks to have an ally with which to identify. Speaking candidly with the magazine, Crawford did admit that she’s still not sure if she’d have added a beauty mark if “designing [her] face from scratch.” Gasp! It’s hard to even imagine Crawford without it.
Not all moles are beauty marks
