Beauty Talks: The Trend That Is #FlexInMyComplexion

It has been a trending debate on twitter — According to many, #FlexInMyComplexion is an opportunity to express how beautiful black and brown beauty is, a concept that is not typically portrayed in main stream media.

“African aesthetic beauty is not really in the main stream media so I think it is kind of like a response to that”, says BBC editor and writer, Mahaneela Choudhury-Reid on her views on the popular hashtag.

Of course there was some backlash, as it was viewed by others as yet another item in the race agenda. Truth be told, there are probably many more individuals around the world who truly need to hear this message to feel confident in the skin they are in.
