Show Me Some Skin

Whenever I go to the beach, my mom would ALWAYS (without fail) call me just to remind me to take care of my skin and to NOT get a tan. She’s the typical Chinese mom who thinks fair skin is might. Of course, I’m the typical daughter who thinks tanned is sexy. But at the end of the day, I do understand where she’s coming from. Not that I don’t think morena girls are equally beautiful, but I do get why so many girls, especially here in our country, long to be fair-skinned. If you’re one of them, then this entry is for you!

If you want to lighten your skin or just maintain it, I say go for soaps like Palmolive Naturals White & Moisture. This gentle soap has a formula infused with 100% natural Papaya and Songyi Mushroom Extracts that promise whiter skin in one week ( when used twice daily, based on mexameter instrumental reading). Using soaps like this is so much safer than popping pills or injecting stuff into your system.

Once you’ve successfully achieved that fair radiance you’re longing for, it’s time to show it off! If you’ve got a party to attend, highlight your fair skin even more by wearing clothes that provide great contrast against your skin tone. In my case, I’ve been fair all my life so wearing black really makes my skin color stand out. Plus, black is one of the easiest go-to colors for night outs. It’s practically a no-brainer!

I always say, show that radiantly fair skin off but don’t show it ALL off. Subtlety is key! Here’s where the cut and silhouette of your clothing comes in. Cut-outs placed on strategic areas are always welcome. They provide a certain sexiness to your look. No “free for all” sign here. Tasting portions only, no buffet! Haha!

Of course, I’m sure you want to stand out from the crowd too, right? So in a sea of girls in micro-minis and bodycons, why not go for a mullet or high-low cut to show those legs off while adding a little drama? We’ve been seeing a lot of this silhouette lately and I don’t see any signs of it going away any time soon so you’re definitely on trend!

Don’t forget to strap on a pair of sexy heels to best show off some leg.

              Palmolive is a good soap. As for whitening lotions, I haven’t used any! :)

            Sorry for lots of questions. :)) Can you give a specific kind of Palmolive soap? Like the whole name of the soap? :)

    Injecting or popping metathione pills is completely safe too, actually. Healthy, even, since Metathione is an anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants are produced by our body naturally. They inhibit oxidation of molecules thereby minimizing the death of cells in our body. (Whew!) The whitening is really only a side effect. :) But that’s just Metathione, I have no idea about other injectible stuff. Haha!

    You say you “don’t think morena girls are equally beautiful, but I do get why so many girls, especially here in our country, long to be fair-skinned.” Can you elaborate on that? What “exactly do you “get about why girls want to lighten their skin? and how the media might contribute to the general trend?

      I said “NOT that I don’t think morena girls are equally beautiful”–meaning

        I DO THINK THEY ARE EQUALLY BEAUTIFUL

      . Please read carefully. As for your other question, I get why some girls, even when they are perfectly beautiful with their morena skin long to be white. It can be because of the media, or other influences from their environment. Or maybe because they like to emulate their favorite artists. Or simply because they feel that certain colors go better with fair skin and they like these colors more than those that go well with morena skin. Same goes for fair-skinned girls who long for tanned skin. It’s really a lot of factors. It’s not about which is more beautiful, it’s not about that at all.

    I think, apart from beauty, it’s just healthier to maintain the skin you were born with (as in, less sun exposure but also no bleaching/trying to make it fairer). My mom wears sunscreen everyday, even on cloudy and cold days, and her skin looks like the day she was born, still :) It’s important to be natural and not change the way you were meant to be! haha~ anyway, lovely outfit as always!
