Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Absolutely the sickest shit on the market, western companies tell dark-skinned women to hate their appearance, evil marketing at it finest.

Surely the whole fashion and cosmetics industry, and associated hangers on in magazines and pop culture, is about telling people they look ugly and to buy their stuff to look beautiful and have a better life? Alas, humans are sick fucks and statistically tend to give jobs and trust people more simply because they're pretty, so they're not entirely lying, just coldly cynical and ruthlessly exploitative. I guess in the developing world beauty is high up there along with phones and vehicles above the actual necessities.

My wife looks better with makeup on and smells better wearing perfume. I would guess her budget for cosmetics exceeds mine for alcohol and if that makes her happy, I have no problem with that. She has no skin whitening products and has come to realize beautiful does not equal white or hiso. I think the most shocking example of the racism dark-skinned Asians face is when I was in the Philippines. Turn on the tv and you will never see anyone who looks remotely like what the people on the street look like. All the actors and tv presenters have alabaster skin and thin noses. Thailand is not much better, it really is institutionalized racism.

It is so sad to see some of the horrific results of the skin whitening products. Beautiful women with patchy faces.

Yes I have seen a few too, how awful for them.

Seriously sometimes it's hard to find products that aren't whitening. If I was any whiter I'd disappear.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

I remember looking for sun lotion in LOS a few years ago. Could not find a single one that wasn't whitening, inclucing brands like Nivea.

Go look in Europe and you won't find one the other way around - blackening... :stir:

Oh sorry.... 'Browning' :stir:
