We have noticed that most foreigners like darker skin..but most Filipinas like to whiten their skin. Skin-whitening....probably one of the most popular and the best sellers in the Philippines and in other Asian countries.Don't you think?
While some western people spend lots of money to achieve a darker skin, some Filipinos spend theirs on skin-whitening products. Well, surprise! Some people would do anything to get that tan beach babe look when some already had it but are still trying to get rid of it. That's just the way things are, we want what we don't have…it's a human mistake,jejeje. We don't appreciate what God gave us. Maybe he made us different so someone else could appreciate those differences. Just imagine if everyone looks alike, its like removing the colors of a rainbow…huh.
Some filipinos are born with a lighter skin tone. When those have lighter skin want darker skin, people would say " Are you crazy?!". Why they react like that? Some would like to just want to try something new… But by doing that,they will be changing themselves and I don't know how they could inspire fellow filipinos not to change themselves too..jejeje.
We could know that in some parts of the world, there are people who appreciate their/our /your darker-skinned beauty and would actually want to have some characteristics they have.
I don't think it would also be good for the businesses and the economy if filipinos suddenly stop buying these skin-whitening products because there are a lot of companies who are dedicated in selling these products.
To be fair..ok..ok..I guess we should just let people do whatever they want to make themselves happy…
