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. Hence, the countless trips to the beach and the need to be always out in the sun not only made me close to charcoal-black but also acne-prone. The skin discoloration and pimples were so bad that I found myself seeing zits and several uneven patches of skin all over my body.

Hellish.

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. It’s a new kind of beauty when you succumb to the bleaching syndrome that made you valorize light skin tones but this time adds to the element of skin care.
