Thai Beauty


Apparently, in Thailand, you are seen as more beautiful if you are pale. Check out this whitening lotion... a stark contrast to the tanning lotions that are so popular in America. I see billboards like this frequently. It's interesting to me how beauty is all about perspective.

  3. Seriously, a friend of mine here has been using Pond's scrubbing face cleanser/mask. She couldn't figure out why she was so pale - until she realized that Thai ladies use it to whiten their faces!

  4. I know, Kristen! I was looking for some moisturizer at the store but couldn't find any without the whitening stuff!
