Shocked to hear this from this Kenyan lady about why she had to ‘lighten’ her skin. (BBC trending)

Lessons on love, respect and life


I could not believe my eyes when I saw this advertisement near my home.  Having seen ‘beauty queens’ and models of all colours and races, I could not believe that a market for such ‘skin lightening’ creams existed.  But, yes, obviously there is a market and demand for this cream in the 21st century, when women with little self love and even lesser self esteem depend on how ‘light’ their skins are in order to feel more attractive.  Some women even blame society for lightening their skins and do not take responsibility for their actions-

Ladies, learn to love yourselves and your skin.  We are the children of the universe of different colours and shades- each one of us is beautiful just as we are!
