Let them know you never leave the house and get any sun. But at the end of the day, it's not any of their business. If they pester me enough, I'll probably tell them that my skin care routine brightens up my skin.
Exactly that!! It's no ones business how you do it. I am rarely questioned, but when I am, I always come back with saying I use amazing products, or say its my amazing sunscreen! When and if I am asked about the products I use, I tell them a variety of things.........let them do their own homework!

If you live in the UK, they should understand 😂

Just by avoiding the sun + using sun protection makes your skin lighter throughout the years. You don't have to say anything.

Weird question but is there a scale with pictures for skin shades that this community uses?
not really.
Overtime people have mostly used the Mac NW/NC shade scale.
Overtime , I think most people define what a shade is to them.

The ones who really don’t care, just mention it and keep moving. It is the jealous friends that keep bringing it up. I tell them I’m taking care of my skin. I also go to the gym so it’s balanced

It’s not anybody’s business for sure, however, I would personally just say that I have been taking care of my skin and if they get nosy and ask for clarification then say that I have been using products to even out my skin tone, exfoliate and using sunscreen which removes the existing dull tanner skin and keeps it from tanning in the future.

Lool i basically say it's my sunscreen doing the most and I exfoliate, take my vitamins and mind my business 😅
My DIY LA lotion confuses my family cos it's a Nivea bottle. They keep looking at my bottles for anything that says "lightening" haha

Hi everyone!

I haven’t been on here in a couple of years. I never left the community but I haven’t said much so I want to chime in.

I had a friend who tried to mention my skin being lighter but the funny thing is, it was at a time when I wasn’t even lightening my skin. 🥴

Now that I’m full-fledged I don’t even bat my eyes at the comments. Especially because it’s not a drastic change. I either tell people I stay inside or just look at them crazy. 😂
