Anyone else notice there's a huge obsession these days about people wanting to 'change' their skin tone?
Some white people flock to tanning salons and to the beaches to get darker.
And some black people use bleaching creams to lighten their skin.
I know many people have to be happy with their original colors, but more and more I see it in my community (mostly white people) women obsessed ith being tan.
Personally I'm very white, very very white with freckles and dark hair.
I love my skin color! But many people have told me I should get a tan, or say 'I bet you can't wait to get tan' and I'm like, uh, no! I like my skin this way!
Do you think everyone would be happy if we were all one color? One caramel tan color? Is that the ideal or something?
It can't be everyone, but it sure seems like many women specifically are working hard to be a different color. What do you all think? D you like your skin tone? Do you tan or bleach? People you know?
