I just saw this photo in my files awhile back. This was taken 2 years ago during our trip to Yangon. Our son in the middle with the Burmese kids. Notice the powder on the kids’ faces? These are actually sandal wood cream or powder that they put on. It is common to see the kids and adults with these on their faces. This is actually like ‘make up’ for them. It is also said that the sandal wood cream can help them have smoother and fairer skin. Hmm..I wonder if this has the same effect as tretinoin. Anyways, I tried to put the sandal wood cream on my face for a few days, but it made me have break outs. I think it’s because I have oily skin and the cream itself is very oily.
