It’s no longer news that we are in an age where some women have embraced skin bleaching or skin whitening. One example of this would be male Snapchat queen Bobrisky.
Now, one South African personality and actress known for her white skin has come out to deny that she bleaches her skin. She said she only lightens it.
“There’s this thing where people believe that I bleach my skin. I don’t bleach my skin, I lighten it. There is a difference between lightening and bleaching, and people just don’t get it,” she told South African live video streaming service, VOOV.

“People who are lightening their skins using gallons and overd*se on (skin whitening products) glutathione tend to have skin like mine. Pinkish, lightish, like an albino colour. My skin does (have this complexion) because I overdo everything in life. There are no side effects. All it does is make me lighter and it is like having loads of vitamin C, which means I don’t get the flu easily.” She also added.
