-Try to avoid the sun from 10a.m.-3p.m. During that time, the sun is most harmful.
-ALWAYS head for the shade.
-As I've said in the previous entry, SUNSCREEN! SPF 70(the highest SPF I found which I use)!
*Note that our body needs the sun to make Vitamin D. Without it you are unhealthy so don't over do the sunscreen.
*Note that if you over do the sunscreen it may give you cancer. Yes it does prevent cancer from the sun, but lately just about to much of anything will result in cancer. If it's cloudy, don't use sunscreen. Worried it will get sunny during the day? Bring some sunscreen to apply later.
*Note that you must reapply sunscreen over a few hours(whatever it says on your bottle) since there is no 24/7 protection.
-Squeeze lemons out for the juice and combine it with water. Then smear it onto your skin(mainly face, but your choice). Wait a few minuets and then rinse it out. It's usually done 3 times a day.
*Note that you should never wash your face more than 3 times a day or else it will become dry and irritated. After baths/shower, always use face lotion just to be safe.
-Get some cucumber slices and apply it onto your skin(places of your choice). Allow the cucumber slices to stay on your skin and wait for the juice inside it to sink into your skin. Rinse it out later on.
-Rub your hands with oatmeal(yes, only your hands)! It's an old fashioned way, but it works! This is to get/keep your hands white and soft.
-Sprinkle some baking soda with water into your bathtub and soak in it for 10 minuets ONCE A WEEK.
*Note that I said SPRINKLE. That means USE LITTLE baking soda.
*Note that doing this over once a week may cause damage to your skin. ONCE a week is pretty healthy though.
-Drink green tea! Yeah this sounds weird, but actually, the ingredients in green tea will naturally reward you with paler, whiter skin. It also helps to get/keep your face clear.
*Note that green tea has CAFFEINE in it. Asians are naturally shorter due to genetics and drinking this will only shorten your growth time. Recommended for 18+ or whenever you've officially stopped growing.
-Dark nail polish such as purple will make your skin appear to be lighter.
*Note that if you constantly use nail polish remover to switch colors, your nails will turn out unhealthy and flaky. DO NOT over do this. wait until your nail polish(most of it anyways) has fallen off before you use nail polish remover and apply more. Don't overdo the dark colors though. To much is creepy.
-Darker clothing may also make you appear lighter skinned but don't overdo it. Once in a while is fine. To much is just creepy.
-Don't be lazy! Use sun umbrellas!
