More weird skin whitening ads from Asia



While the Western world tries desperately to convince its pale citizens to keep out of the sun and tanning booths, the East continues to baffle us with its obsession with skin whitening products.



In this case, a hand cream promises to make your skin so blindingly pallid, it will cast a white shadow. (Hmmm... that reminds me of a TV show I used to watch.)



The exaggeration is too obvious to accuse TBWA Hong Kong of false advertising in the concept itself, but these products can run the gamut from useless to downright dangerous. It's a shame people can't learn to love diverse beauty ideas, rather than being preyed on by snake oil ads.

  1. There are also many medications/formulations to naturally whiten your skin - which you can prepare at home without any side effects. It is the best way to escape from harmful chemical cosmetics. It is also relevant that most skin care products costs much. But, as you are aware, formulations prepared at home can be the cheapest and effective way to whiten your skin naturally. Most home remedies can be sourced from ebooks which are sold on the internet, and most of them have many natural home made formulations and remedies described in step by step manner, so that it will be easy for you to prepare the same.

  2. As an editor for a cosmetic surgery site, I am sensitive to cultural perceptions of beauty. Though Asians are obsessed at skin tone (specifically getting lighter skin) their Western counterparts have another obsession that may be more serious: looking thin and young.
