I'm a natural browning, not a bleacher


July 13, 2017

Dear Pastor,

I am of fair complexion. I believe God wants me this way, so I am to appreciate myself by caring for myself.

When people see me walking in the sun, they curse me and tell me that I am damaging my skin, because they think that I bleach.

I always laugh and tell them that I am getting vitamin D, which we all need, and that they are damaging their skin by bleaching.


Dear Writer,

People should mind their own business. These people who are commenting on your complexion believe that everybody who is of light complexion is bleaching.

They are so wrong. Take care of yourself and don't allow what people say to upset you.
