Whether some may like to admit it or not, opting to go darker can mean grappling with some internalised colorism. I know my grandmother, from the Caribbean, would be so baffled about me choosing to go darker. After years of being told to stay out of the sun and finding rogue and aged bottles of skin-lightening creams in the backs of cupboards, self-tanning when you’re already brown feels like a very subtle act of defiance. While I don’t need self-tan, I am enjoying the artificial glowiness. Regardless of whether I’m using foundations, serum, moisturisers, fixing sprays or more, I am always in pursuit of the glow, and self-tanners, whether necessary for me or not, are now just another tool in my glowy skin arsenal.
