As a child we have heard numerous times the fable of Snow White and when we think about snow white we cannot forget the famous lines “mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest of us all” We are not satisfied with healthy glowing skin, we all yearn for a fair skin. Skin creams are promoted as fairness creams and we are ready to try out all of them to get the white touch. These market products may or may not make us fair but they do have “fair”amount of harmful chemicals and are “fairly” expensive
