Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Johanna.
My story is kind of funny. I Was actually a cinnamon color but started suffering from a condition called vitiligo which actually turned my skin pale as an end result. I honestly have always loved pale skin, just think it looks sophisticated. Sunblock has def been my bff ALWAYS since all my life I attended various dermatologist they always emphasized the damage the sun can cause to your skin and how it’s very important to protect it. I definitely don’t see how a persons skin color makes them better or prettier in any way. A tan is not gonna give you a pretty face or a healthier organism hell you could be suffering from multiple diseases but you have a “healthy”tan right?IT’S CALLED IGNORANCE now if your pale with under circles that might give off an ill look but there’s nothing a little concealer can’t fix 🙂 to me just natural skin colors are all beautiful…sunless tanners really don’t grab my attention since they most likely give you a orangey look not attractive in any way….funny how when you go to a black women’s beauty shop they sell all these lightning soaps and creams like really?while some are trying to get dark the others are trying to get light blah blah blah What works for me doesnt necessarily work for you and vise versa. My world and mind is diff than yours(thank God) respect that 🙂
