Latinas come in every shade imaginable. From light to medium to dark to everything in between. It's a beautiful thing. It also means that one shade or product does not suit all when it comes beauty or skincare products. Products that are designed with lighter skin tones in mind don't always work for medium or darker skin tones, but have always been easier to find. Fortunately, more and more companies are creating products specifically for Latinas with dark skin and that's a great thing.
