When I was about twelve years old, I remember how I wanted to have fair skin. Fortunately there was this product that offered and claimed to make my skin white. In my hopes to get what I wanted, I tried it but never did it prove its claim. Maybe I was expecting the result to manifest too soon. You know, like an overnight thing? So I stopped using it plus I don’t have my own money to sustain its use.
When I get older, my interest to have white skin came to pass. I overheard someone saying that my morena skin is better than white skin. I guess that was the time that I learned to love my color. Sometimes it makes the big difference when you hear someone say something good about something you don’t know is good at all. It gave me confidence that being morena doesn’t necessarily mean less attractive.
There are women who are naturally faired-skin and they are sure beautiful. They always seem flawless in dark-colored shirts and always look super nice with light-colored hues especially with powder pink dresses.
But wait, there are also so many women who have brown, tan and morena skin who are equally beautiful. Their poise is beyond beauty that oozes with glamour and style.
Beauty is not in the color of the skin. Therefore buying whitening products will not give you the beauty title.
Beauty will not result from using whitening soap, whitening lotion, whitening cream, whitening pills, and others.
I’m tired seeing all those whitening products in the grocery. It’s tiring how these manufacturers dictate that white or fairer skin is more appealing and attractive. It robs you off your confidence for not having white skin.
Do yourself a favor and remind yourself that
Beautiful is YOU. Beauty is in YOU.
So be confident and know that YOU are beautiful.
