These Local Celebs Have Something to Say About Being Morena

They love the skin they're in.


( Bianca Gonzalez-Intal spoke anew about taking pride in her skin color after a series of tweets wherein she bemoans fellow morena beauties who are endorsing whitening products.



According to the TV host, she doesn’t have anything against the beauty whitening industry and it would be okay to use products to even out one’s skin tone. However, changing one’s skin color entirely is another story.




“No hate for anyone! Kanya kanya talaga,” she said in a following tweet, after several fans accused her of referring to Nadine Lustre and her latest endorsement.


Aside from Gonzalez-Intal, here are other Pinay morena beauties who have talked about loving the skin they’re in.
