Avoiding a sun tan
By MARYKE PENMAN
Most Kiwis are soaking up the
sun while Asian women are trying
their best to avoid it. Some are
even going as far as whitening
Specialist treatment clinics like
the Korean-run Secret Beauty
Club in Albany say they have a
base of around 70 customers who
regularly seek whitening treat-
ments. They happily fork out $100
for a two-hour treatment.
Beauty assistant Jenny Jin says
a pale complexion is considered
pure, clean and most importantly,
It is also a judge of people s
class. They think you must work
outside labouring if your skin is
dark, Ms Jin says.
She says Asian women in New
Zealand are very worried about
the harsh sun. And despite pale
complexions proving unpopular
with most Kiwis, many
immigrants want to stay on trend
with their Asian friends.
The sun is very strong here.
We are really scared about it and
that s why we wear gloves and
visors, Ms Jin says.
We have yellow skin and if it
gets burnt we get lots of wrinkles
and spots. But compared to Kiwi
women skin cancer is very rare for
us, she says.
New Zealand Dermatological
Society president Amanda Oakley
says: Skin whitening is
undertaken using legal and safe
products, for example soy bean
extract, azelaic acid, but also
illegal toxic substances like ultra-
potent topical steroids and mer-
cury. Last year I saw an African
immigrant with terrible stretch
marks from the use of a steroid
cream she d bought in the Middle
East, sold as a skin bleach.
Mercury has been detected in
many skin creams used in devel-
oping countries, Ms Oakley says.
She says hydroquinone, a
chemical ingredient in many skin
bleaches, is legal in New Zealand
but is banned in the United States
because it cannot be ruled out as a
Hydroquinone is also used in
photographic film developing.
Specialist Elisa Baek says the
whitening treatments at the
Secret Beauty Club are safe.
In Korea skin whitening is the
No 1 most popular treatment, Ms
Baek says. Pure vitamin C, fruit
acid skin peels, ultrasound mass-
age and take-home creams make
the skin much lighter.
Altogether patients spend
$1000 over the course of 10 weeks.
Human beings always want to
be young, she says.
Motorway lanes closing for weekend
Motorists should avoid using the
northwestern motorway this
Large sections will be closed for
work at the Lincoln Rd and Te
Atatu interchanges, the NZ
Transport Agency says, mainly to
demolish an old bridge.
The city-bound motorway lanes
will be closed between the
Brigham Creek roundabout and
Lincoln Rd off-ramp, starting
10pm tonight until midday on
West-bound lanes will also be
closed between Te Atatu Rd off-
ramp and Lincoln Rd on-ramp.
The NZTA suggests people
going west avoid using the north-
western motorway altogether
from the causeway, as delays are
likely. Those travelling east to the
city should use the new SH18
Hobsonville motorway from
Westgate to reach the northern
motorway (SH1) and then travel
south over the Auckland Harbour
merseason for information.
