Earlier this week, the online community was enraged following the unsavory ad of a whitening product. The ad –which implies the superiority of fair skin to a ‘morena’ skin tone — has earned backlash from the netizens.
What ensued is a nationwide protest to embrace Filipinos’ natural ‘morena’ skin.
In a country where mestiza skin is revered by the mainstream media, it is rare to see morena celebrities. But these morena beauties proved that they don’t need whitening products to be comfortable in their own skin!
There’s nothing wrong with being morena, and you should be proud of it! This is the motto of these gorgeous celebrities who embraced their natural skin tone.
1. Lovi Poe
One of Lovi Poe’s best assets is her sun-kissed skin. Aside from her natural genes, she got it from being a certified beach babe!
2. Megan Young
Former Miss World Megan Young is also proud of her morena skin. On Instagram, many fans often comment on her naturally-tanned skin tone.

Iza always makes it a point to embrace her morena skin. Even in the past, this seasoned actress has never endorsed a whitening product. Way to go, Iza!
