Glutathione

Here in the Philippines, everybody wants to be white. That's why glutathione pills are such a craze here in the country. People take them to make them fairer. If you have obtained that Edward Cullen fairness, congratulations! If people are starting to mistake you for Michael Jackson, oops! Easy on the pills! You must have taken too much.

You can't really blame the people. It's the same reason why people go for rhinoplasty, or that eye surgery where they make your eyes bigger and put some eyelid folds to your eyes as well, or why people go to salons to perpetually straighten their manes. It is the euro-centric standard of beauty to blame. And oh, people wear freakin' blue contacts as well! Silly right?

I've never taken any of these glutathione pills. And I don't think I ever will even for the sake of its anti-oxidant properties. For one, I'm already maputi for Filipino standards. But even if I'm darker, I wouldn't take these either. For a guy, it is too vain. Why put the effort on making yourself white when you know for a fact that you can never be white? Besides, who freaking cares? We're brown and that's hot.

Oh Pinoy. If you are not Chinese or Japanese or part-Caucasian, just stick to your original skin color. It looks better that way.

Why is it that people with dark skin want to lighten it and people with dark skin want a tan?

I have to agree that everyone's natural skin color is the best for them. EVERY skin color is beautiful.

Michael Jackson lost some of his good looks when he became obsessed with changing his color and did. He was so much more handsome when he was his natural color.

You should consider glutathione for it's amazing health promoting properties--but not the very ineffective skin whitening pills.

@wait,

thanks for the comments! you're in a roll!

@marisela,

hi! while it is true that caucasians worship dark skin, but they don't buy contacts to get some dark brown eyes or do rhinoplasty to get a flat nose.

Ganun naman talaga, lagi nating gusto ang mga bagay na wala tayo. Hindi natin nakikita ang mga bagay na meron tayo dahil nabubulag tayo ng ating paghahangad. at sa huli makikita na lang natin ang sarili nating nagsisisi dahil pinagpalit pala natin ang meron tayo sa mas pangit na bagay pa.

Ako di ko na kailangan nyan, maputi na rin ako eh!pero ayaw ko rin namang magpaitim!hahah! Kontento na ako sa kulay ko!

Is Glutathione safe? My friend told me that it is not good for the liver?

I am just curious though I have no plan to try it.
