Adverse Effects of Bleaching the Skin


Bleaching is a common phenomenal among ladies in Africa as this is practiced so as to tone the skin to give a lighter color, hence destroying the melanin in the skin layer.

But one disadvantage bleaching gives aside destroying the melanin is skin cancer.

White people are more than 20 times likely to get skin cancer than black people. This is because they lack melanin, a pigment that darkens skin and protects the skin from becoming damaged by the ultraviolet rays from the sun.


Most skin bleaching creams work by suppressing melanin, thus weakening the skin and making it more vulnerable.

Skin bleaching does cause cancer love your dark skin that protects you, instead of trying to change it!
