Loving your skin and its shade is something that may not come naturally to some because of their beliefs, but that is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself.  

 Here is proof of someone learning to love their shade of beautiful.  

“the older I grew, the more I learned I am my skin. 

I learned to get used to the side jokes. I learned to get used to never having a dark enough “nude” colour. 

I learned I look damn good in yellow, white, and blue. 

I learned the sunlight wouldn’t make me lighter, but it accentuates the darkness of my skin. 

With age, I learned I will attract the ones that will find me attractive. 

Having a darker complexion is what makes me unique. It’s what separates me from the others and it’s essentially what I use to stand out on my own. And building that confidence is what ultimately made me attractive even if I wasn’t someone’s preference. 

In the wise words of Tupac, “Some say the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice. I say the darker the flesh that mean the deeper the roots.” 

I love that for me!” – Rhonda James

    We are all beautiful regardless of our skin colour or shade. You just have to understand your skin, whether it is dry or oily or combination skin and then take it from there.
