I have often been asked about how my skin never gets dark despite continuous sun-exposure and long hours of sun-bathing.
Believe me, I always fancied having tanlines I can parade in the city post-beach trip, but maybe the tide isn’t just on my side.
Nevertheless, like what they say, love the skin you’re in. And I love my color, it’s the only one I have anyway.

But what I’d like to share with you today is how I keep my skin maintain its fair color, and some tips on how you can achieve that whiter skin. Trust me, it takes time, but that’s the safer route.
1. Protect your skin from the sun.
Of course, you know UV rays, apart from the fact that it encourages your skin to produce more melanin, it also has the ability to damage it. So use an umbrella, and bathe in sunblock! Haha Especially for the face! You don’t want additional wrinkles and dark spots, do you?
2. Exfoliate your skin!
Since dead skin cells don’t naturally take themselves off, you can just help them by exfoliating.
You can either use body scrub, or use calamansi to rub in your dark areas. I use these on my elbows and knees. You can also use lemon with sugar as an alternative for the body scrub.
3. Prick your pimples!
With clean hands or tools of course!
Contrary to pop culture, I think there is beauty and logic when it comes to pricking pimples earlier or using pimple-clearing speed gels.
It addresses to take away the bacteria that are inside soon before it invades more tissues underneath the skin. Prolonging the pimple or lump inside may cause more havoc as it is not yet being released.
You can see how the beauty aestheticians prick them during facials, and not let you wait until the eye appears or the pus, whether fresh or hardened, is ready to come out.
Letting the pus out sooner means you rid your skin more pimple mark space from darkening.
4. Use your trusted organic or natural whitening products.

These products / goodies are way safer and healthier than those that promise instant whitening. Instant whiteners have more chemicals that can be harmful.
Avoid bleaching too and its variants, as they may cause adverse effects in the future, particularly on your liver.
The liver is responsible for detoxifying all cosmetics and pharmaceutical products being applied topically or orally. So it’s not only your drinking that should be moderated! 😉
Remember, health should not be compromised with beauty. Okay, merfriends?
5. Use Magic Cream for pimple and chicken-pox marks.
There was a time I hoarded pants and leggings for a year, and I never wore shorts or skirts. This was the year after I had chicken pox. Magic Cream was a savior and erased all the dark marks left by the pox.
I stand by this product so much. It has restored the natural transparency of my skin. My arms and legs look like they never had chicken pox at all!
6. Don’t wear white bikinis on the beach when the sun is up.
The white color of the fabric is a good reflector of the light from the sun, when it bounces back – well, you know why your face got extra toasted that day. 😕
7. You can try Glutathione pills.
I tried KB Glutathione for a month, and while reaction to glutathione pills is relative to each taker’s bodily mechanisms, I am quite happy with the results.
My skin had this radiant glow. And even though I was a late-sleeper, I still wake up fresh and my skin looks moisturized.
My face became clearer too as some of my pimple marks turned shades lighter.
It smells very eggy and foul too, one of my indicators that it’s potent and legit.
It melts easily as I had once let a capsule stay inside my mouth prior to drinking water for like some seconds, and it started to melt.
That’s a good sign actually, as it suggests that it certainly disintegrates once it’s inside the body.
KB Gluta is available in leading drugstores nationwide and can be bought in Lazada too!
