Skin Whitening Products for the Filipina Morena
Here in the Philippines, when someone has fair and white skin they are guaranteed to have great advantages over those with the typical brown skin tone. White skin toned Filipina are admired and envied by most Filipina. The Filipino society taught us not to be proud of morena skin tone, being white is synonymous with beauty and wealth.
There are a lot of other Asian countries obsessed with having fairer skin tones, China and Taiwan are just some. Fair skin, in ancient Chinese times, was also considered to be a symbol of elegance and nobility. But now in this generation and present time, brown and darker complexions are getting more traction more than ever. Asian super models that do not sacrifice their natural ethnicity by using whitening products are being praised for proving beauty in any skin color.
A lot of Filipina wants to achieve fair complexion to the point that whitening products and pills are not simply enough and go beyond what cosmetic products can do, bleaching or skin peeling. But what if you really don’t want to undergo such operations just to achieve a fair complexion? You can have patience and try using different whitening formulas that would suit you. Pills and whitening products do well for the Filipina morena.
Another influence that led to the Philippines society favouring whiter and fairer skin is globalization. Scholar Koichi Iwabuchi has said that globalization processes “have not simply furthered the spread of Americanized ‘global mass culture.’ They have also promoted the flow of intraregional media and popular culture within East and Southeast Asia. ….In this sense, they are neither “Asia” in any essentialist meaning nor second-rate copies of American originals.”
There are a lot of whitening products and pills to use for you to achieve fair complexion. Here at Beautyshop Philippines we offer Whitening Capsules (i.e. Luxcent Gluta, Prolife Atlas, Relumins Gluta) and also some Whitening Soap (i.e. Kojic Soap and Milk Pearl Soap).

Wash it all down with whitening soap – we suggest soaps with papaya extracts – and use shampoo and conditioners that darken your hair to lift up your skin color better.
