      hahaha…that’s funny. All their skin has been altered, so i don’t know what type of good skincare they are prmoting. They should just say toning and bleaching. Lola maja is naturally lighter skin because I saw a younger photo of her and she’s always been on the lighter side
      I’m still surprised how Banke got so light because she used to be dark skin and I used to admire her skin colour so much.

    If you are not light skinned………………….
    92.65 % of the women above are.
    Argue with your ancestors.
    If you deny the colourism thing u just chose to be ignorant.
    By the way I’m light skinned so there’s no inferiority here.
    Just fact.

      My dear eh, the thing tire me. It was all I could see as I scrolled down. Unnaturally light skinned ladies everywhere. Even the guy’s complexion was questionable.

      That she chooses to celebrate the Igbo woman does not negate the strides the other ones are pulling. Calm your tits please

    I’m glad there’s more talk on good skin care these days. We all need to learn how to care for our skin.You can wear the best clothes but I personally dont think it will still measure up if your skin looked a hot mess. It just makes one look unkempt. I tried the youtopia brand once and i actually liked it. My best however is the Daizaura skin care brand. I think its a new natural skincare company. Anyway, found them on instagram on a page (@goodskinguru). I am dark skinned and my sister is light skinned and we both use their products. When I say our skin looks flawless, I mean flawlessss. People always ask us what we use and sometimes just assume its in our genes lol.

      Skincare is really important. Wasn’t really taking care of myself until 2014. When it comes to skincare, I have some foreign brands I use. For Nigerian brands, I use Black Soap from Estella’s Pride and Ajali, and moisturisers from Oriki. They’re great brands! Of course I eat right and exercise for prominent results.
