Ahem! can i butt in here? I dont agree that tanning creams are less harmful than bleaching creams. I recently saw a story on Tv,about a british teenager who has developed a skin condition because she's gone under the sun lamp so often that it has damaged the layers of her skin and because of that she's not going to live up to 30.

If according to you bleaching is another way of saying God made a mistake with your complexion, then is wearing clothes another way of saying God made a mitake creating you naked? :biggrinsa


saw that programme at well. that gurl was only a teenager, i think she was to young to be tanning, and she does it often. her skin aint that strong. thats by d way sha, if people wanna bleach, let them bleach. there is always an end result to this thing, or some side effect. but no one is tellin them not to bleach.

This is a crazy thread. Let us raise the level of discussion. The color of ones arms from the elbow to the fingers will always be darker because the sun hits those when exposed - when driving etc. So how does one determine if one bleaches? Women always take care of their faces - wear hats to avoid the sun.

some people are even created that way, some people have darker toned legs than their faces, others have lighter toned arms than their legs, then as far as the joints most black people are 'naturally' heavily pigmented in those regions ( i guess it's a genetic thing :confused: ) I have a friend who is evenly toned all over her skin, even down to her buttocks!, so you really can not categorize one as bleaching because their knucles or knees are darker than the rest of the skin --- oh and By The Way ...Meddeen...You really don't want to know the number of black women who believe in the power of hydroquinone 2%, and it might be closer to home than you think... as long as it is done sensibly, in moderation and healthily...i dont know how someone can go morally wrong with that

Black is beautiful. I am just as dark as Stephanie Okereke, and believe me i had a lot of pressure in secondary school and primary school, I was teased as a a lot that i looked "too dark" and what not - the guys would only ask the light skin or half cast girls out (now they cant get enough of me since i got older), yet i never gave in to those peer pressures. I love my complexion. I have never had a pimple in my life and I drinks lots of water to keep it tight and have used nothing but my Nivea for years. I am blessed that God gave me this smooth complexion, I would not change it for anyone.

Its about time Africans embraced that dark si beautiful. That white mentality of lighter is better is bull s hyt. LOVE WHAT GOD GAVE YOU.

The beautiful dark sistas i admire are

GENEVIEVE NNAJI (everybody knows i adore her beyond words)
STEPHANIE OKEREKE
GABRIELLE UNION (www.imdb.com)
KENYA MOORE (www.imdb.com)
 
I would really like to know who and who is involved in bleaching in the movie industry. I don't see anything wrong with their natural colour.
 
Pls, let these humans be pls...... dem bleach, dem no bleach....... Na your body go smell or na your body turn fanta for face and coke for back.


As far as I am concerned.......... most of the people you mentioned don't bleach....... I have seen Babasuwe from a far distance b4....... He is light for real.

I can bet you these people are as guilty as charged...at least i know that Genny is not blessed with your apparently beautiful skin so she just might be utilizing some ngwo-ngwo to fade away those unsightly reminants called blemishes...trust me Akata women carry the trophy for 'maintaining' their skin -- call it bleaching, toning or whatever you like -- as long as its got hydroquinone 2% u definitely are washing your skin to a lighter shade. The Vivica Foxes and Unions et al in the limelite are the numero uno perpetrators of the 'fade cream' culture

for real o

Thanks for your brilliant insight !!! Toning is something to make you brighter...the sun is harsh and tends to darken the skin..using creams and beauty products is part of a beauty regimen !!!

Thanks for the information, but I still believe bleaching is wrong regardless of who's doing it.

No one said they shouldn't have the freedom to do what they want. But bleeching is morally wrong. It shows that you're not proud of your colour. Don't forget that there's also a health risk that comes with bleaching.

Why didn't white people introduce a cream that can make their complexion dark? I mean make them look like black people.
so u dont know, many many white ppl wanna turn black, i mean they are actually more into this than us they see it as absolutely nothin bad, i mean u will see them tanning, trying to look darker and its so common now among them, tanning tanning na so dem dey talk.
though i dont support bleaching one bit sha.
