To Buy Tanning Lotion?

All my life I wanted to have fair skin. Even when I was younger I remember being so envious on my classmates who have white skin. And because of that I ask mom if I she can buy me whitening soap when she goes to the grocery. Some of my friends says that I already have a fair skin already and I don't need those whitening pills nor soaps. But I don’t see it when I am facing the mirror. I always think I am still too dark. So I just laughed when a friend asked me if I want to buy tanning bed lotions from her. I mean that is so funny right? Why ask the one who is desperate enough to get whiter skin to buy a tanning lotion? Duh!
