YouTube vlogger Bianca Kleen has some awesome self love tips for dark skinned women and girls that DDS wholeheartedly agrees with. When colorist media and society says you aren’t good enough, a heaping dose of self love will always prevail! Get into the tips and video below.
1. Support platforms that celebrate you – As Bianca stated; “Do NOT look for popular culture for validation!”. You’ll lose every time trying to fit into what mainstream media and society says is beautiful. Stop asking to be included as a token and support platforms that you don’t have to beg to celebrate you, even if they aren’t as popular. Mainstream beauty isn’t the end all be all.
2. Daily positive affirmations – It may seem cliche but positive affirmations are indeed effective. Kiss yourself through the mirror if you have to, just don’t go a day without reminding yourself of how awesome you are!
