This Dr Jart’s clay foam will make your face instantly brigther

I think it’s inevitable for those with medium to tan complexion wanting a brighter skin. So sometimes we resort in an instant solution – those evil Vitamin C injection, yes there’s such thing! I know the celebrities are doing that for a boost of energy, but in this part of the world, many are doing it without professional supervision for beauty related reason. Very dangerous endeavour I must say.

So instead of the dangerous path to instant solution, I present you something that will make your complexion instantly brighter at a reasonable state but still very safe. Mind you, it will make your skin brighter but at a normal state, not brighter than your original skin complexion.

A brief history on the Indonesian women’s quest toward whiter skin

I think my stance on whitening (yes, explicitly said!) skincare is quite clear. While I’m not against any skincare that opts for brighter, clearer and healthier complexion, I’m really against the idea of any skincare that promises whiter and paler skin than your original skin colour. Especially those that promises instant result. I always have big suspicion on that kind of skincare. I don’t believe skincare would be able to give you instant result. Apparently the obsession towards whiter and paler skin by Indonesian women actually predate to the Majapahit era. I’ve written a brief history on this for Elle Indonesia for their March edition, titled “Bright Story”.
