With all the talk about loving our hair and whipping it back and forth, we figured we’d keep the ball rolling and celebrate why we love our beautiful brown skin. Here are ten reasons we can’t get enough!
I love my skin because it is . . .
. . . diverse. From creamy tapioca and warm caramel to sweet cinnamon and deep ebony, our skin comes in a myriad of shades—all equally stunning.
. . . kissable. Especially by the sun. While we still need to pile on the sunscreen, we don’t need to run from her embracing rays. Instead, we welcome them.
. . . luminous. There’s just something radiant about our skin. Whether it’s just been sun-kissed or is naturally almond-roasted, the rich yellow and red undertones make us glow.
. . . ageless. As the saying goes, “Black don’t crack.” And there’s some truth to it. The large amounts of melanin in our skin protects from long-term damage associated with aging, like deep wrinkles and age spots.
