    Why cant I be light skinned
    I'm a deep brown skinned bangladeshi teenager. I wasn't dark skinned when I was little, I was a mild orange/tanned colour. But now after like 5 years I have turned a dark shade of brown.
    When it comes to love life I have also never had a girlfriend, is it because of my skin colour.
    I think it is, so how could I if possible get my skin to be lighter. I sometimes hate looking at the mirror, thinking about what the change everyday will be. Is there any help anyone can offer like any lotions or anything
    , thanks in advance

    Your love life has more to do with your own opinion of yourself, than your color Since you hate and don't like yourself, shy should anyone else.

    Learn to love the man in the mirror and be happy with yourself, and your life will turn around

    I know many men from southern India and others from Africa. They are all beautiful people (their skin glows!), as long as they are beautiful on the inside too. Are you beautiful on the inside?

    I think that in your case it's just beyond skin color..
    You can change your skin color (creams, lotion, peels etc.).. but would it really change your inner self?
    I don't think so..

    Im sorry to hear that, I know how it feels to not be happy with your appearance. But trust me its never as bad as we think, try to think positive and be self confident and the girls will notice no matter your skin color :)

    I agree that it is important to be happy within yourself and that will shine through more than any change in your skin colour will ever do. Think about all the positive aspects of yourself rather than what you don't like and keep reminding yourself about them. There is no harm in wanting to lighten your skin colour but it is not going to make a difference if you don't have anything good to back it up. And lastly you must invest in a good sunblock. Whether you decide to lighten or not this is important in preventing the sun damage you seem to have sustained. Best of luck hun!

    Nobody really cares about our skin color besides ourselves, cause we've been conditioned to. That's not what's holding back your love life as everyone has said. Get a new hair style, some new clothes, little things that might make you feel better and stop focusing on your skin tone! Cause no one else is & if they are, would you really want to be with someone that shallow? I wouldn't.
