Stop buying them and perpetuating the cycle? It’s supply and demand. If demand drops, supply drops.The root of the problem isn't that the products are available, it's the discrimination/societal pressure people face that makes them need or want to use them in the first place.
Historically speaking skin complexion has been used to convey status or power. In days gone by wealthy people liked to look pale because it showed they didn't need to toil outside. Nowadays people like to be tanned because it shows they can afford expensive holidays abroad.
Beauty standards change over time, but there are clear links between that standard and what confers status or power within that culture.
