The Doppler effect in skin complexions

One half of the world tries to whiten while the other tans. While in India the cutting edge whitening creams use abrasive ceramides and pearl essences (with the tears of angels thrown in for good measure), the west, reeling from a report on the carcinogenic properties of tanning beds, toys around with caramel and cocoa.

Perhaps there will come a point, as surely as night follows day, that this darkening and whitening of complexions from opposite ends of the spectrum, will reach a consensus color and meet. Once everyone has realized that they are of course of one hue, dissatisfaction will inevitably set in and the race to become fairer and darker than the other will pick up speed.
