Skin Lightening has always been somewhat of a Taboo Topic for as long as Skin Bleaching Creams have been in existence.
For those users with darker complexions, many have stated a wide range of reasons for utilizing these oftentimes unhealthy and toxic products literally at the expense of ones well being.
These skin bleaching creams and soap products all have chemicals that are proven to be detrimental to the health of the user yet the sales of them indicate an ever growing market that doesn't seem to have an end in sight.
So what is it about these skin lightening products that make them such a big seller especially in the Black community as well as in countries the world over?
This is an indication of an extremely deep rooted issue that has gone on too long within Black communities worldwide without indulging in this long overdue conversation.
It is my belief that many who use these creams are not confident enough in their God given beauty and have been brainwashed to feel that the European standards of beauty are somewhat superior, desirable and will place the artificially lightened individual in a far better position to receive a better job, that elusive mate and overall improved chance at life because of the impression that people with lighter skin receive better treatment in society.
It's the blowback from living in a racist society and a definite indication and prime example of of self hate.
So as you can see, this phenomenon is nothing new, just as the feeling that many Black women have that their dark skin is a thing of ugliness and a curse when in fact it's the opposite!
Join in with our conversation on this night so we can go deep into a topic that will surely get tempers flaring!
