How The Bleaching Trend Is Affecting Society

A series of videos, sent to me by a friend regarding the bleaching epidemic and the devastating effects. I don't apologize for so many bleaching posts because it is truly outrageous how much this practice is being abused and the smuggling of illegal products actually has the knock-on effect of making it more difficult for those who actually have medical needs.

More Bleaching in Jamaica

Another interesting, shocking and devastating article regarding the bleaching activities of the poorer population in Jamaica... There is only so much you can do to help ignorance but if people want to ignore the health warnings and continue doing something in the HOPES (not the guarantee) that they might eventually become someone else in time to still be young enough to enjoy it, what more can you tell them?

Again, I will state that this has nothing to do with Vitiligo or people who have chosen to depigment due to having lost the majority of their natural skin colour. I do not condone bleaching for bleaching sake under any circumstances. Furthermore, I think this phenomenon is making an absolute mockery of what people with actual skin diseases have to experience who have no choice in the matter.

Give me cocoa brown buttery skin any day if these people don't want it...
