A lot of ladies here in China use these cremes, so be careful, because some of them contain steriods and can be harmful to health.

The danger is not whitening cream, the danger is the man power that force women to fit their vulgar esthetic criteriums....

haha men put the cream on for the women? just joking i know what you mean

in that case, just think of the health benefits of covering your skin with clothes, its better and cheaper than creams

I wonder, do women want to be white for the men, or for other women?  Or for themselves?  Or for society in general?

I'm perpetually brown these days, even though I carry my umbrella.  Hainan sun is that way.

I would love to have a nice tan, but I'm fair skinned, and the sun does cause wrinkles and raises risk of skin cancer. Like you, I live in a sunny place - so I'm always looking for shade and sunblock every day.

Covering up with dark clothes, yet still getting about 15 minutes of sun a day is a good bet. Dark clothes will keep the burning rays off you better than lighter clothes.

Some sun everyday helps your body make vitamin D, which helps us absorb calcium and is showing promise as a cancer preventive.
