Light or dark

Skin, that is. Back home, TV commercials are more of whitening lotion. Grocery shelves full of whitening soap, creme, lotion and other stuff that would lighten skin tone, particularly a woman’s. I wouldn’t deny trying a certain lotion back then, to no effect. My skin only lightened a bit when I started living in Manila. It must be the wind and the water lol.

When I came to Vienna it was the other way around. People prefer tanning lotions and these are prolific in the stores here. I remember a colleague said she wants to have the same skin color I have… 🙂 Well, I think it really is a matter of being satisfied…I’m particular with how safe changing skin color is…
