Part of the fun of being a woman is that you can change your hair, makeup or the way you dress simply because you feel like it.
But doing so as a celebrity means bracing yourself for critiques of every kind. So it’s not exactly a shocker that rumors began to swirl when actress Meagan Good recently appeared in public with her skin looking a lot lighter than normal.
Good turned to Instagram yesterday to debunk the rumors about her new look and the skin-bleaching speculation. Good wrote:
“I can’t believe I’m actually going to address this nonsense lol … Buuuut I have young women who follow me – so I think its important to give clarity because I believe that black and every other color is beautiful . This is for those who believe that I would actually bleach my face and entire body to try to be lighter skin smh …. Umm No Ma’am. First off? I LOVE my complexion- no matter what side of the spectrum I’m at at any particular time… My skin looks various different ways for various reasons – from lighting to makeup …style of photography or something as simple as weather and what coast I’m working on at any given time… This is my complexion-the one I was born with… I tend to get lighter and darker depending upon how much sun I do or don’t get. I looove the sun I’m a Cali gal, but as I’ve gotten older and especially more recently, since I’ve gotten into my 30s, I tend not to be in the sun as much because it ages your skin terribly. Simply put -I’m opting to preserve my skin by protecting it and only making exceptions for vacations.”
