It is vital to choose the right color that suit you.Choose a swimsuit that matches your skin tone to accentuate your natural beauty.Let's take a look which colors may be best suited for your particular skin tone and which swimsuit colour to choose.
What’s your skin undertone?
There are thousands of skin tones in the world.Maybe you already know what skin tone you are,but determining your skin undertone can be a bit more difficult. It's important to know your undertone.Because it reflects how your natural skin reacts to certain colors.Your skin tone can change with time, but your undertones don’t. Here are some methods to find your undertones：
*Use white paper
premise :Make sure your skin is clean, without any makeup or toner.
In natural light, hold a piece of white paper to your face.Look in the mirror and try to see how your skin compares to the white paper.
compared to white paper,IF:
your skin is yellow,Your skin tone is WARM.
your skin is pink or rosy,Your skin tone is COOL.
you're not sure if it's yellow, or pink, then you have a NEUTRAL tone.
*observe your veins
If they are blue or purple, you have cool undertones.
If they are green or olive,you have warm undertones.
If you have a mix of both, you have neutral undertones.
*Try to wear jewelry
Try on silver and gold jewelry to see which color looks better on you.A ring or a necklace both OK.
If gold makes you look best, you are warm.
If silver makes your skin glow and looks best, you're cool.
If there's no difference, you're a neutral.
*Go under the sun
Think about how your skin reacts to the sun when you go to the beach and come back, or when you're walking around without any protection from the sun.Does it tan easily?
If you tan easily, then you have more melanin, and you have warm or neutral undertones.
If your skin burns and doesn't tan, you have less melanin, so you have cool undertones.
