Why L-Glutathione Isn’t Just for Skin Whitening

July 22, 2015

I’m drawn to Filipina skin. Born. Developed. In keeping with the Filipina DNA, I’ve always loved, wanted, desired, and yearned for always maintaining the morena-just-gotten-out-from-the-ocean-kind-of-skin.

The skin discoloration and pimples were so bad that I found myself seeing zits and several uneven patches of skin all over my body.


My recent affair with Vida Nutriscience’s Snow Whitening Soaps and L-Glutathione capsules made me go back to rethinking about whitening and taking care of your skin.
