Does anyone know how I can make my skin get lighter?

Any skin lightening/whitening products to recommend?

Thanks

Is there a reason why you feel the need to 'whiten' your skin??

These threads have been done before and people mentioned a popular cream called "fair and lovely" or something.

I would advice against this. A lot of skin whitening products are dangerous, some that have been banned in the UK but are still used in the developing world have been identified as carcinogenic.

I'm sure you have a gorgeous skin colour -- white skin is not necessarily better than other skin colours. Personally I think the hottest skin colour is olive, nothing beats a delicate tan.

Check out Korean whitening cream on Google for products such as face masks and moisturisers.
Thanks! Do you know any specific brands/products?

To look better and less ugly. Lighter skin looks more pure and pretty.

I use Chinese cream called Bao Zhi Tang. It keeps my skin looking pure & clear, and the ingredients help to make the skin lighter. Pale skin is attractive to me, it's healthier too. The more of a tan you have, the more wrinkles you will have later in life. I use factor 50 all the time to avoid any tanning on my face.

I've tried fair and lovely previously and it wasn't very good imo.

Well I'm a bit darker than an olive skin tone. I'm trying to lighten my skin to get to that colour.

Having a tan is actually bad for the skin. Being out in the sun is one of the most damaging things for your body, not only does it cause wrinkles and sagging later on in life, but it also causes skin cancer.

If you look at top models in Vogue or on the catwalk, they're pretty much always pure white, or close enough. That's because it makes them look healthy and authentic.

Because my skin tone is ugly. No one will ever like me if I stay this colour.
