Vaginal Bleach???

Reblog from : http://margaja.blogzam.com


Vaginal Bleaching! Anybody heard of it?

I asked my husband a few weeks ago if he have any idea or heard any news about vaginal bleaching? (it’s not really the vagina, it’s the outer region called the “vulva”, the correct term here should be “vulva bleaching”).  He stared at me for a long time ( looking at me as if I’ve gone totally mad! ) and said “WHAT?”, then did a google search on “vaginal bleaching”, when the search results appeared he was stunned, after a quick perusal he turned to me and said “this thing will be a monster hit in the Philippines soon!”. He also said the same things about BB Cream a couple of years ago when it started selling like crazy in Korea!

I grew up in a rural area a couple of kilometers away from General Santos City and back then even the mention of the word “va-jay-jays” was almost taboo. Now, we have advertisements of products in TV, radios and the net that lightens the color of the skin down there! Well. what can I say? I have to give kudos to the scientists, marketing strategist, and advertising people for hitting the nail on the head on this matter, they’ve studied women’s insecurities with regards to the appearance and color of the skin down there, and exploited these insecurities by putting ads that says you smell bad down there, you’re too big or too dark or you’re too brown down there when it could be lighter in color by using their products in just a few short weeks! What they’re really saying is, this is an opportunity for you to make yourself more attractive to your mate. Turns out their product can also whiten your ass and nipple! Bingo! So bleach that “va-jay-jays” right now!

Here’s the advertisement from an Indian Commercial Product that says it all!

What’s your analysis of this video? Here’s mine!

A young Indian couple sits down to have a morning cup of coffee, the wife looks dejected because her husband was ignoring her. Thinking to herself, if only i could make myself lighter down there he would pay more attention to me. Presto! She went and took a shower putting on a vaginal whitening cream, when she came out she’s a different girl, playful and confident she’d get more attention from her husband. ( As if her husbands instrument was as white as a jedi’s light saber in star wars! )

Personally, I’m not opposed to women wanting to bleach their nether regions. Just make sure you know what the possible side effects are. As for bringing more excitement to your pussycat, there are loads of other options out there. You can always try waxing a thunder bolt butterfly the next time you visit a salon. That is, if you have any hair left from the last good-bye muff trend. Some of you may have lasered it off completely, in which case you may consider getting a “dirty tattoo.”

Let’s have a look at history and see what problems, procedures and products were used to keep a woman smelling and looking good in the nether regions.

1. Problem: Your Vagina Smells Bad
Solution: Vaginal Deodorant

In the seventies, Massengill tried to marry feminism and its vaginal deodorant spray (“With Hexachlorophene”) in an ad that declared the product to be “The Freedom Spray.” It was “…the better way to be free to enjoy being a woman. Free from worry about external vaginal odor.” Because you’re going to need that time you used to spend worrying about your vaginal odor to flirt your way through the glass ceiling. Oh, and Hexachlorophene? It’s a disinfectant that can be lethal when absorbed through the skin. In 1972, it was added to baby powder in France due to a manufacturing error and killed thirty-six children.

In case you think vaginal deodorant is a relic of the past, just take a trip to the drug store. (I did, and I took notes. The staff of my local Walgreens is convinced that I’m both very thorough and that my vagina smells really bad.) There are several kinds of vaginal deodorants still for sale (Walgreens even manufactures a generic version). You can buy scented vaginal suppositories called Norforms in Island Escape and Summer’s Eve Deodorant Spray in Island Splash. (Norforms contain something called Benzethonium chloride, which is also used as a hard surface disinfectant for fruit and classified as a poison in Switzerland. Exotic!) And you can buy FDS (Feminine, Discreet, Sensual) Spray (“For the woman who cares.”) in a myriad of scents including Sheer Tropics and Fresh Island Breeze.

Because if you really cared, you’d make your vagina smell like a poisonous island.

2. Problem: Your Vagina Is Dirty
Solution: Douching

Douching, the act of forcing a mixture of fluids up into the vagina with a tube and pump, was first promoted as a form of birth control (it doesn’t work) and has continued to be used for vaguely medical reasons: to prevent STIs (sexually transmitted infections), to clean the vagina after menstruation and, of course, to rid it of that disgusting vagina smell. Douching has been repeatedly discouraged by the medical community, which not only doesn’t attribute any health benefits to the act, but believes that it can actually harm women. A government Web site run by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services discourages douching by answering a series of hypothetical questions, one of which is: “My vagina has a terrible odor, can douching help?” The answer: No. Get thee to a doctor.

Despite health concerns, manufacturers still churn out vaginal douches. Pick up a box of Summer’s Eve Douche, and you’ll find warnings that douching has been associated with PID (Pelvic Inflamatory Disease), ectopic pregnancy and infertility. Right next to the suggestion that women douche after their menstrual period, after using contraceptive jellies and creams and to “clear out any vaginal secretions.” So basically, any time your vagina isn’t as dry as a British sitcom.

3. Problem: Your Vagina Is Too Loose
Solution: Vaginal Rejuvenation

Let’s face it. Nature really screwed up when it made the vagina. Never mind that that it accommodates the birth of a child or that it’s fundamentally better designed than male genitalia. (Who wants to carry their most sensitive reproductive organs on the outside?) While nature was busy dishing out things like multiple orgasms, it forgot to make vaginas vice-tight. Luckily, plastic surgeons have stepped in to put an end to womankind’s collective suffering.

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a trademarked phrase that refers to a practice developed and popularized by Dr. David Matlock, who’s made several appearances on the E! channel’s plastic surgery reality show, Dr.90210. Matlock and other doctors who carry out LVR claim that the $4,000 to $20,000 procedure makes women’s vaginas tighter, thus increasing sexual pleasure.
But many doctors disagree. The American Urogynocology Society won’t endorse it. And the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists cautioned in a 2007 statement that women seeking “designer vaginas” should be “informed about the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia, adhesions, and scarring.” Sexy!

4. Problem: Your Vagina Is Ugly
Solution: Labiaplasty

If your vagina is tight enough (and let’s face it, it’s probably not) you’ve still got to deal with the labia. And by “deal with,” I mean remove. Labiaplasty drastically reduces the labia, the protruding lips that surround the opening of the vagina. Why would you want to do this? Because your labia are “unequal,” “elongated,” “large,” “irregular,” “floppy,” and “unfeminine.” These are just some of the unflattering adjectives bandied about on the Web sites of surgeons who offer this procedure. Luckily, with the use of lasers and scalpels, your vagina can be made “prettier,” “better proportioned,” “youthful,” and achieve “the true Playboyaesthetic look.” How much will it cost you to make your labia proportional and feminine? About $5,000 or more.

5. Problem: Your Vagina Tastes Bad
Solution: Vagina Mints

If your partner is reluctant to give you oral sex, it’s not because of pervasive cultural belief that cunnilingus is complicated to the point of being impossible and that vaginas are inherently icky (thus the need to uncomplicate them and un-ickify them with, oh, say, labiaplasty) it’s because your vagina tastes bad. Enter the Linger Internal Vaginal Flavoring, or Altoids for your vagina. Linger assumes you already feel bad about your nether regions, stating on its Web site that the mint-flavored pill “decreases self-consciousness” and tosses out the unattributed statistic that 72 percent of women feel self conscious about their taste and odor. Dubious marketing practices aside, the Linger mint isn’t just a harmless, if asinine, oddity. Mother Jones magazine did some digging into the origins of Linger and discovered that the vagina mint is no different from a regular mint. In other words, it’s made out of sugar. And putting sugar-based mint directly into your vagina is a recipe for a mint-flavored yeast infection.

6. Problem: Your Vagina Is the Wrong Color
Solution: Vaginal Bleaching and Dying ( Current craze )

The popularity of BB Cream

What is it?

In a world where the faces of famous Hollywood celebrities look nearly as flawless as they did when they first hit the celeb circuit in the 1980s, it’s not surprising a youthful look is in demand these days. But most of us don’t have the access to famous dermatologists or thousand-dollar creams, so we have to figure it out on our own. And it can be tricky to navigate the seemingly endless array of skin care and beauty products that are available on the market. Our medicine cabinets are filled to the brim, and our time is precious.

Although the evolution of BB Cream can be traced down to Germany in the 60’s to soothe skin that was recovering from surgery, South Korea is now the source of the current craze expanding into Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, China and the rest of Asia. Now the trend has expanded worldwide into the U.S., Canada, south America and the rest of Europe. It has become a must-have for women across all sectors of society.

Tracing it’s roots

BB Cream — the BB is short for “Blemish Balm,” “Beauty Balm” or “Beblesh Balm” (stemming from a copyright on the word “blemish” in Korea) — was originally developed in Germany in the 1960s by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek, who was looking for an ointment suitable for patients who had recently undergone a peel or laser procedure. The product remained relatively obscure until it was brought to South Korea and Japan in the mid-1980s, where it became the favourite beauty product of a few well-known actresses and has been selling like hotcakes in recent years.
Another interesting point we have to consider is: Is it worth the hype?

BB Cream is creating a buzz because it addresses both a woman’s fundamental desire to look younger than her age and a not-so-secret desire to have flawless skin. Beauty blogs have been buzzing about the product for months and search engine searches for the term “BB cream” have gone up exponentially in the past few years. Some sources claims that it has skin regenerating properties, but most dermatologist would caution consumers “buyers beware” when choosing. Until further studies are conducted to prove its skin regenerating properties, don’t believe all that hype.

Here’s what is known about the product so far: The cream is all-in-one treatment/makeup hybrid/moisturizer, it’s meant to be soothing and nourishing to your skin while providing light, tinted, sheer-looking coverage for your dark spots, pimple and acne coverage and other facial blemishes. Variations of the product includes a good SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s ray, and providing anti-aging and anti-inflammatory serums to the skin to make it look younger. Some formulations are made to treat skin problems and others offers skin whitening to give your skin that instant glow!

As with any product that sells itself, big name brands have joined the fray, Marcelle, Estee Lauder, Clinique and Garnier to name a few, have produced their own version of the product, the high end ones priced at $50 or more and a more affordable ones priced below $20. Of course if you are on a tight budget you can always do a google search and buy popular Korean brands that started this entire craze, or source it out in Taiwan or Singapore.

The key to the BB Cream is to apply sparingly — generally a pea-sized amount dotted on the forehead, under-eyes, nose chin and cheeks and blended well into the skin is enough to provide natural-looking coverage. Reviewers have applied BB Cream with or without moisturizer underneath and some finish off with a dusting of powder. Some have remarked they could replace their foundation with BB Cream, where others think BB is best suited to a natural weekend look and not meant to replace full foundation; others think it works well as a primer under their regular makeup — it’s whatever works best for your routine.

Glutathione! What is it?

Source : http://kikay-kits-and-outfits.blogzam.com/
Back in 1747, James Lind’s discovery that Vitamin ‘C’ could cure scurvy was a major medical breakthrough, that saved countless lives.

Since then, Vitamin C has been found to be beneficial for many other things as well. However, it wasn’t until 1954 that scientists began to understand exactly why it’s so powerful. During that year, a researcher named Dr. Denham Harman formulated the free radical theory of aging. This theory suggested that aging is actually caused by free radicals, which attack and damage the cells of the body. Dr. Harman further theorized that this process could be slowed by antioxidants, nutrients with the power to neutralize free radicals and heal the cellular damage caused by them.

Other scientists at first scoffed at Dr. Harman’s idea; however, it has since been proven by numerous studies. It is now known that Vitamin C is an antioxidant and that is why it has so many benefits.

WHAT IS GLUTATHIONE?

Glutathione is produced naturally in the liver. It is made up of three amino acids, and it is vital for cellular metabolism. It protects against oxidative stress caused by free radicals, is required for the immune system to function properly, and is a potent detoxifier.

The importance of glutathione has been validated by over 92,000 scientific articles, more than twice the amount that has ever been published about vitamin C. In fact, nutrition experts believe that it is just as necessary for our health as oxygen, food and water.

GLUTATHIONE Benefits:

      • Increase energy
      • Slows down the aging process
      • Reduces muscle and joint discomfort
      • Detoxifies the liver and cells
      • Improves mental focus and clarity
      • Improves quality of sleep
      • Reduces the effects of stress
      • Improves the skin
      • Athletics performance and recovery

WHY DO WE NEED GLUTATHIONE?

Glutathione helps other antioxidants and nutrients do their jobs properly. Without it, no amount of supplementation or healthy eating will do us any good. In addition, since our immune system depends on this substance, a lack of it causes us to get sick more often. It also protects our mitochondria, which provide energy to our cells. Our mitochondria are very vulnerable to the effects of free radicals, so if glutathione weren’t present they would deteriorate very quickly and our cells would die.

Furthermore, this antioxidant helps our body get rid of toxins. This is important, because most of us are exposed to dangerous chemicals on a daily basis. In fact, a study by Cornell University found that over 60% of the world’s population is harmed by air pollution, and the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health recently found that almost 900 of the chemicals used in cosmetics and skincare products are toxic.

Although glutathione is produced naturally in the body, its levels begin to decline at around twenty years of age. From that point, they decrease by 8% to 12% every decade.

By the time a person is 50, these levels are only at 60% to 70% of what they were in their teens.

The level of glutathione in our body is also lowered by sickness, toxins and other things that cause physical or emotional stress. Because it is nearly impossible to avoid these things with our modern lifestyle, most people do not have enough glutathione in their bodies.

Of the potential benefits of GLUTHATHION as stated above, improvement of the skin ( its ability to whiten skin ) is the most sought after benefit ( sometimes, the only benefit ) every dark and fair skinned women desires, as long as they can afford it, they’ll buy it.

There was a time in the not to distant past that the craze for skin whitening was the use of whitening creams that contains corticosteriods! BE AWARE however that prolonged use of whitening creams containing corticosteroids can cause very adverse side effects!
