    It's true some nations promote skin bleaching. I was in India recently and there were a lot of ads on tv promoting skin creams that lighten the skin. Nivea and Oil of Olay were 2 big participants in this. Sad but true.

    This is sad.......I didn't think this was happening in Jamaica, because the men are always talking about staying true to your roots....and they love black women, regardless of their complexion.....I am shocked by the things they said

    I think in India and Africa it's worst....even the stars makes commercials in India about skin bleaching and that one's life would be better if you were fair........sad, sad, sad

    this is common not just in jamaica but it is common in latin america and even asia.

    in india, the whiter you are the higher socioeconomic status you are. like usually, if you have very light skin in india, you are considered a higher caste. also the whiter you are, the more likely you are to succeed in the film industry.

    europe- everyone tans like crazy to get the same tan complexion of hispanics and asians

    the idea we learn from this is...we want what we can not have.

    You should read Laura Jefferson’s book "Skin Whitening At Home" ( I saw it's also available in electronic format +video: http://www.skinwhiteningathome.com ). After 8 weeks I managed to get my skin a few tones whiter and I also got rid of freckles.

    The method she teaches in her book is natural, inexpensive, and is readily available in most homes. You could even find some ingredients in your own backyard. The most wonderful thing about the method she shares in her book is that it will help you whiten or lighten your skin pigmentations, freckles, age spots, acne marks, dark underarms, melasma, or your overall skin color easily and naturally without breaking your bank or producing dangerous side effects. Good Luck!
