    I knew that they are used in the Phillippines...I have bought a skin-whitening tonic from the Filipino store to use on the dark spots that pimples leave behind.

    And to think that here I despair over wanting to be tan...:)

    It is. I watched a documentary about the telemarketing business and the US outsourcing that sort of thing to them and they're trying to sound and look like Americans. They wear blue contact lenses and they want to sound like valley girls and they're bleaching their skin. If it wasn't going on, there would be no need to advertisement. If they want Western dollars, they're going to have Western influence. Now I'm all for bringing the business back home where it belongs, but they can't have their cake and eat it too.
