Please don't: If you try to lighten your skin, you will eventually disfigure yourself. In the usa, judging another by skin color is considered the height of ignorance, and i expect that this will soon be the norm worldwide as it should be. Looking good for a man is much more about being lean, having some muscle, and above all carrying yourself well and being a decent person.
