I am the palest kid in my family thanks to my white dad, but half my cousins are Polynesian dancers, so that’s not saying much. Those cousins have been known to roast pigs in the backyard, and sometimes they show up to reunions in grass skirts because that’s just how they party. What do I get out of all this besides a fondness for coconut and guava desserts? A tan. It’s not intentional (Why would anyone INTENTIONALLY cook themselves?), It’s just a thing that happens no matter how much SPF I slather on. I will say, however, this whole “tan” thing makes for some fun summer makeup inspiration!
