In any discussion about bleaching, we often focus only on the downsides. Nobody talks about the advantages that might just be the reasons people who feel the need to bleach do so. If you’ve been banging your head against a wall, trying to understand why anyone would willingly damage their skin almost irreversibly, leaving them susceptible to so many life threatening conditions just to make their skin tone a lighter shade, here are some of the reasons.
- You can create a whole new identity for yourself. Maybe you are trying to get away from a crazy sugar daddy, just bleaching your skin is a whole let cheaper and easier than plastic surgery. Trust us you’ll become unrecognizable.
- You never have to worry about your new identity coming out, because you are just going to keep evolving. You start off yellow, then become white when you start supporting your bleaching cream with pills, red when you are out in the sun for 5 minutes, green when you get sun burnt, some shade of blue if your bleaching cream is cheap. In short you are some Mystique level kind of shit.
- You never have to worry about finding your shade of foundation again, and that’s a great thing if you’ve gone the cheap way and your face is now three colours.
- You are in line with the APC administration’s agenda which encourages transparency since your skin is now thin enough for us to see through you.
