Whitening Lotions

In this part of the world, Asian girls have a funny sort of fascination with being white, and "white" does not mean "fair"; it means "white" like a washed out sheet of photocopy paper. Every single cosmetic company out there in the market promises whitening effects with advertisements of dark skinned girls abound which promise a bleached face-like death.

So sad, they fail to understand that being "white" suits white people because the pinkish tones in their skins lends better to a healthier overall look. Asians, especially the Chinese have much yellower tones in their skin and more often than not, being too "white" only results in looking either quite green or sick. Ofthen, they are also terrified of the sun and go to great lengths to avoid getting a tan (they call it "getting dark'). They drive with long-sleeved shirts and gloves, use umbrellas when walking outdoors and splatter on whitening lotions while indoors. This obviously leaves them with a distinct deficiency in both sunshine and Vitamin D making them look even more ill than they already do.

Some spend loads of money on these whitening lotions not realising a chemically-induced "whiteness" bleaches out any sense of colour in their skins when they can get a glowing effect from free sunshine. Anyway, we could always do with more pale looking people in the world ... it makes the rest of us tanned and slightly tanned beauties all the more stunning **wink** **wink**

I'm naturally got fair skin, last few years I work full time on construction sites and my skin burned very badly, now getting better since I work in office more than on the site, but still abit tan. Whitening lotion really got side effect to our skin, I never use those products.
