Are you able to buy products called "sunscreen" or "sunblock?" We have those in our country. It keeps the sun from hurting your skin. They have numbers to show how strong the sunscreen is, and a higher number is more protection. Oddly enough, many Americans think a darker skin is attractive, but it has been shown to increase the chances of getting cancer and wrinkled skin in the future.

I agree with Lorikeet--if you can buy sunscreen, that will keep your skin white, and help prevent skin cancer. There are also clothes that have special sun-blocking capabilities. Don't forget to weat a hat! And sunglasses will help keep your eyes safe, too.

When I was growing up, everyone thought that the darker your skin could get--we call this "tanning"--the more attractive you were! Now, many people have wrinkles and spots from spending so much time in the sun.

Just like what Lorikeetto has mentioned that too much sunshine will increase the chances of getting cancer and wrinkled skin in the future.
But the most terrible thing caused by sunshine for girls is too much sunshine will speed the process of aging on your skin. I think it very horrifing! Sad I really want to stay young forever!!!! How about you?

Do you know the brand"mentholatum". It has a kind of sunscreen. I don't know how to say it in English. It's very comfortable to wear it and you won't feel covered by much oil like any other cheap sunscreens do. And a 100ml size only cost you 47 yuan. you can visit this website to know more information about it. http://product.danawa.com.cn/341009/pic.html[/img][/i][/quote]

Where I life most of the young people are intentionally going into a studio called "solarium", to get a darker skin. Creazy isn't it?! Confused

So far...

That is also what I want to know very much!

Anyway,don't be soooooo concerned about the colour of your skin!
To be darker is also charming,and the dark skin means health!

So just let it have its swing! Laughing

Actually, the problem is not the color of your skin, but the effect of the sun's radiation on it. A bad sunburn, for example, can mean skin cancer as you get older. In addition, skin that has been in the sun a lot eventually looks older than skin that has not.

You don't need light coloured skin to look beautiful! In Western culture a tan is thought to look healthy and attractive. Also your body needs to absorb a little sunlight through your skin to remain healthy.

Not too much though! Sunburn is NEVER good for you!

If I were you, I will use sun block and whiteing serum before I go to outdoors. If I have more free time, I will go to the beauty parlor. Beautician can repair your injured skins and teach you how to tend and protect by yourself.
