Just recently, celebrity mom and TV host Bianca Gonzalez-Intal called out a fan who bashed her daughter for being born with kayumanggi skin. It's unfortunate to know that some still perceive that fair skin to be more beautiful, but what most don't realize is that there's lot to love about being morena. So if you're a dusky beauty, here's a list that will remind you why you should embrace your Pinay skin tone:

1. Bold shades of makeup look good on you.

Go ahead and try on that purple eye shadow!

2. You always look sculpted.

…and your cheekbones are seriously on point.

3. Being morena is a true test of beauty.

Are you familiar with the phrase, “maputi lang” that guys always say?

4. Hello, sun-kissed skin!

You always look like you just got back from the beach ALL THE TIME. People even wonder how you can even squeeze in time to hit the beach.

5. You have a lower risk of getting skin cancer.

…thanks to the melanin in your body that works as your invisible barrier against the sun!

6. You look younger.

Once again, melanin is doing wonders for your skin since you’re more resistant to aging due to sun damage. Who would’ve thought you’re already 30??

7. You get complimented for your tan.

“Guys, natural tan lang yan.”

8. Wearing whites and bold colored clothes are no biggie.
