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 preferΒ 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… πŸ™‚ Well, I think it really is a matter of being satisfied…I’m particular with how safe changing skin color is…
