Beauty products that continue to use the words whitening or brightening when selling their products to Indonesians even though most Indonesians have a variety of colors, not just white or bright.

The method used in the research is a constructive paradigm by interviewing several participants. The results of this research are the opening of the view that beauty cannot be made or set to a standard, especially as many local beauty products make products to suit Indonesian people's skin color. Awareness and openness of people's minds, especially young people, who know that social media is a means to be open to the uniqueness of each individual's beauty.
