I don’t understand the obsession with getting ghost-white skin in mainland asia.. I always see women carrying umbrellas and wearing gloves/long-sleeved shirts in 90-degree weather for fear of—gasp—melanogenesis. it’s clearly not for medical reasons, given the prevalence of this bizarre phenomenon.

I’m asian and I enjoy a healthy glow, am I just weird?

I’m not sure if there’s a safe way to do so. XD

Otherwise, I think it is best to accept the skin color you already have. I bet your natural skin is light tan or olive, you are beautiful my dear.

I also agree with tightsandtea with this kind of issue. I think it is fine to carry a parasol to screen your skin from burning, but to the point of wearing gloves and covered in warm clothing on a hot day is too much.

It’s crazy how every time I go home, I’m always bombarded with “how to lighten yourself” commercials or products. But here, it’s the complete opposite. My friends are always at the beach, trying to get a tan. Me, on the other hand, I couldn’t care less either way. :) I think everybody is beautiful in their own skin!

Eh people obsessed with being white are just as bad as people who go out tanning. I’m natural quite pale but I tan easily since I’m in South Florida so I wear spf 50 every day on my regular skin and spf 70 on my tattoos and face.

Just like who you are, I know everyone says it but it’s true. I love body modification but don’t do something just because culture stuffs it down your throat.

You’re gonna have to use a whole lot of calamansi if you want to be light all over!
Meh, I’m sick of the skin lightening and whitening creams that everyone and their mom is using nowadays. I’ve seen this all the way from North Africa to South East Asia. Its a shame that I know some people who’ve gotten pretty obsessed with having “flawless” white faces that they have to do dialysis because the chemicals damaged their kidneys. So much for inner beauty.

i think we should all learn how to embrace our natural color. like F4shion said above, her skin tans in summer and is pale in the colder months….she doesn;t go FORCING it.

This is why I rarely go home to Asia. People think my skin color look horrible and lower class (wha..?). Here my natural tan is idolized.

But I grew up trying to make my skin lighter. I tried every possible thing and nothing works. Calamansi only brightens the look of your skin and makes it look cleaner. But there is no way you can make you skin look whiter.
