No. Lighter skin is a reference to someone's wealth. Only rich people who never had to spend their time outdoor working in the sun would stay pale, while the poor ones, or average ones would have to work, thus getting tanned, thus meaning they are poor. It's an old tradition, cult, which is now outdated.

Besides that, to each his own. Some like it fairer, some darker. It's all about the individual asthetical views of the person.

If you're of any ethnicity (especially of the Asian kind) you've probably been compared to someone in terms of skin color. I'm (east) Indian and I get compared a lot. In fact just this summer, I went to the beach and got a tan (aka, darker than I already am, when I got back, I saw a lot of my family and a lot of them said I was darker looking. They didn't say it in a bad way, but you could tell they noticed. Also, one of my good friends told me in a joke that if I got any darker I wouldn't get married (again, as a JOKE!!) It was a funny joke, but it got me thinking about how important tone is.

I've been wanting a lighter skin tone for a while now ('specially to cure that tan!), so before I started any treatments (creams, exfoliations, etc.) I just wanted a few opinions of what you all think about skin lightening and if any of you have done it before or have been exposed to it. I realise that it is a huge thing in Asian countries, so if you want to discuss the positives/negatives, feel free to! Because I wanna be educated on this before I do anything that might damage my skin...

I wanna know a few things
-Risks (i.e. CANCER)
-How effective is it? (How long does it take?/Does it work?)
-Preventative measures (To keep my skin from darkening further... like sunscreen i guess?)

BTW, I'm NOT trying to start a race war or color war, I just want a few opinions on lightening your skin


Lies , Asians can be black - pale.
Skin lightening cannot cause skin cancer.
Effective , it's quick , depends on what procedure.
You can not prevent skin darkening , or you can just stay home all day , you can get paler like that.

Okay? So pointing out historical facts is ignorant? Idiot? Looks like you failed to understand my post.
Just be quiet, for your own sake.

Oh my, you are soooo smart, a 15 year old who surpasses the knowledge of a Uni student. That's indeed BS!

1. Proof of you being an idiot: You were bluntly assuming that this is my belief. = Idiot.
2. Proof of you being an idiot: You posted one of those retarded and outdated fail pics = Idiot
3. Proof of you being an idiot: You are a typical troll, but you lack the intelligence to battle correctly to win the fight you've picked.
4. Proof of you being an idiot: You've picked the wrong person, thus you are definitely an idiot.
5. Proof of you being an idiot: You think you know what you are talking about, while you obviously don't. Proof? Your posts.
6. Proof of you being an idiot: You don't seem to understand the posts you are criticising, thus you are an idiot.
7. Proof of you being an idiot: You are trying to convince me of my idiocy with a sentence of this kind:" Your a idiot for believing in such Bullshit. ;]" Lol? Learn some grammar first, before calling others idiots.
8. You pissed me off, definitely the wrong person to pick a fight with, thus you are definitely an idiot.

I could go on about it, but meh. Just stfu, and stay in the corner where you belong to.

And damn, I am just in a bad mood, and your stupidity pissed me off.

If you continue with your nonsensical idiocy, I'll make sure that you'll get banned. It's up to you.

Oh , guess what.
It took you 20 minutes to type a paragraph.
Your so smart now.
Wow banned? Are you seriously threatening me with that :D?
I never called you dumb / Just ignorant , Knowing about something you heard/read.
has nothing to do with this topic.
So you fail my good sir.
I Read only the first number sentence , and the last , which proved nothing that your a idiot who argues with mediocre children.

^ all of your arguments are invalid, as relying on how fast someone is replying to your response doesn't prove how fast someone types, nor does the type speed prove someone's intelligence, even the biggest retard can type fast if he learned it well.

Trolls = banned...can't be so hard to comprehend that.

Heard, read? It's a fact, and now stfu about it already, or you'll only make yourself look more ignorant than you already are. I suggest you go study some more History, and cultural traditions, before making such an ignorant reply.

It has a LOT to do with the topic, as it's explaining the origins of all this skin lightening.

Aha...so you can't even read a whole paragraph? tsk tsk..at least you are agreeing with me that you are a mere mediocre idiot. What a relief, I was already thinking that you might be living in denial with that fact =O

I'm done with you, it's not even entertaining to go on...boring subject as you are..

*sigh*

hmm, well some traditions remain alive, somehow, but see, there are also sexy actors who have darker skin..I personally prefer if someone has a healthy skin colour...instead of having such a pale one..

It depends as well on the society/country you're living in...In America a lot of people want to get tanned, especially white people, while darker skinned people tend to head for the lighter skin..it's all a racial and psychological complex..
