They say “Black is beautiful”. But being born one, I never agree with that. Since childhood, I long to be white for I always shed tears because of the other kids calling me names (see 29 Years and Counting).
So, I sneaked into using my mother’s bleaching soap. I rubbed it very forcefully on my skin that harmed it and made it even blacker. Too silly of me! I didn’t read the directions first before using it that was why, damage was done. I had a phobia of using whitening products since then.
But in high school and college, I attempted to pursue my whitening career and started using papaya soaps and whitening lotions. But nothing happened. So I didn’t take it seriously and just adapted the pretense, “So what if I’m black?!”
Last year after seeing the effect of glutathione to my high school friend Cherry Ann, I got challenged. I thought thrice so why not make a change for once in my life? Timely, UNO came to Ozamiz so I registered. Three months of taking UNO glutathione capsules had its effects already and I was so damn glad!
Afterwards, Ruth introduced another networking business which was Royale. I shifted into it for its glutathione capsules have higher dosage than UNO’s and I was taking ‘em for one whole year! After three months of stopping glutathione medication, my skin is still fairer than ever! All I need to do now is to maintain it that’s why I asked the help of my friend, Marie Celle “MM” Mosqueda to give me tips on how to pamper my skin.
Milk as we all know is very nutritious. Even during the ancient times, Cleopatra had bathed in milk to make her skin soft to entice her lovers. The fat and protein in milk hydrates the skin that prevents dryness. In addition, the lactic acid also helps exfoliate the skin for additional softness. So just simply pour some of the goodness of milk on your skin!
MM’s Skin Secret # 3 – Milk Salt Scrub
Milk salt is a ready-to-use product that you can conveniently buy in the grocery or any beauty shops. It scrubs the dead layer of the skin away to give it a bright glow! Just scrub this in dark areas like elbows and knees to have them evenly fair with the other parts of your body. Moreover, scrubbing this on your gams can also reduce the build-up of cellulites. All you’ve got to do is to be patient in scrubbing but just scrub only twice a week. Just a warning, scrubbing too often will damage the skin cells so do not overdo it.
Tea leaves have natural extracts that make the skin firm and prevents sagging. It contains tannin which has anti-inflammatory effects that contracts body tissues. Through that, tea leaves also reduce eye-bags. Just boil some tea leaves, let it cool a bit, and pat on your skin. Leave it for only 5 minutes and rinse. After that, you can feel your skin tightened and refreshed!
