Why do Asian countries have so many "Whitening skin" products?

Okay so the commericials like this usually say something like

"You will look younger and whiter if you use this."

Okay so my response to that was...


"Since when do we put pale as a ghost and looking younger together? Honestly, the people on the commericials all looks just like walking and talking corpses to me."

And so like this is NOT a personal attack to asians... i repeat NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK TO ASIANS!! > <

cuz im like half asian too and i've been raised in asia almost my whole life... but honestly i think asians look better without that whitening crap :x

And look at all the "popular" people in asian schools... they all do sports usually or look really good right? And are they tan or super pale usually? well idk what schools u go to.. but the "hot" "cool" "popular" "YOUNG" people usually are pretty tan and not looking like dead people...

So what do you think about those whitening skin products like SKII? do you think you look younger with them? If you don't why do you think they think it makes them look younger? If you DO think it makes u look younger, okay then! just state why and that's alright too (:

Wow seriously? I thought they sell those kind of products in mainly African-American stores. I've see them all the time
Heard it also on a Tyra Banks episode, she did a story about that (don't remember it all though). I think that it's more than looking youthful though when it comes to those products.

I see. still quite a shock to me =T must be a new fad?

they should get a tan or sumthing they r almst translucent

I think asian chicks who are NON tanned are hot...same with white chicks......maybe this product is geared toward darker skinned asians?

Also maybe some asians don't like their skin tone, so these kinda products help. IMO there is nothing wrong about not liking your skin tone......whitening or tanning.......it is all the same...people like various skin tones...it's a personal preference....and acting on that preference isn't wrong.

it goes both ways. in Denmark the trend right now is to be tanned so most makeup or lotion is with bronze color or some sort of tanning effect and thats not cool for people like myself. im really pale naturally and i dont want to paint my face brown or pay for tans just because its what the commercials are telling me is hot. people shouldnt listen to whats hip but just go with their natural skin tone. just my oppinion

Well, the Bollywood stars that are considered to be beautiful are those with a lighter, less natural skin tone. I suppose it's always the way... not much different to wearing make-up to alter your appearance in the West... we find desirable what is generally un-obtainable by most people.

i know... what im asking is why do they have the mindset that glowing pure white makes them feel hot? I agree with GundamMeister1 that people usually want badly what they can't naturally get... whats ur opinion about that?

Exoticism. When you see the same x every day I think that part of you starts desiring something you perceive as unusual. As I white guy growing up in a very white suburb in England I've started to find Asian people particularly attractive of late... I've lived in a world of white bleached blondes for so long now I suppose that when you do see the 5% of people walking around who look *different* it can catch your eye.

God, that sounds horribly racist. It wasn't quite so bad in my head...
