I heard a lot of people in Asia such as in India & in Thailand use some scream to make their skin whiter as the society prefers whiter skin. The girl who has dark skin often got hard time to get a good husband.

But i think their skin can be damaged (get burned easily & have more chance to get skin cancer than the one who don't bleach their skins) if they expose their bleached skin under sun sunshine.
