Changing Your Skin Color

How To Change Your Skin Color

This video gives you some idea of how you can change your skin color quickly and easily. As you can see from these before and after photos of big stars Rihanna and Beyonce, you can go from black to white literally overnight, without people barely even noticing. 

Like I never even thought that those two big pop stars had bleached their skin, even though I saw them since the beginning of their careers, and when they started out in the music industry, they were completely dark in skin tone. 

It must have been on advice from their agents that they made the change, and it is quite a huge change to make, going from black to white for no other reason than it might improve record sales. 

That's basically the underlying motive behind these big Hollywood stars bleaching their skin white. Skin bleaching by African Americans is a big thing in Hollywood, because they've done studies that show that the mostly white audience is more responsive and accepting of a lighter skinned African American. 

It may be somewhat racist to do a study like that in the first place, and then ask your biggest stars to bleach their skin white, but they aren't dumb, and realize that the figures don't lie, and you will actually have more chance of hitting the top of the charts if you have lighter skin. 

So how do your actually change your skin color? How do you bleach your skin white, if that's what you want to do for whatever reason?

Changing Your Skin Color

Changing your skin color is a big decision to make, especially if you are very dark naturally. Still, it can be done safely and effectively with over the counter or non-prescription creams. 

You should be careful to avoid using hydroquinone, or any product containing mercury, as these chemicals are highly toxic, and are still prescribed or sold mistakenly by everyone from doctors to shady internet dealers from Asia. 

The best chemicals to look for as the active ingredients of a cream are arbutin, glycolic acid, lactic acid, kojic acid, sepiwhite FSH, and ascorbic acid. 

These chemicals if mixed up in the right way can be used for long periods of time without any harsh side effects, and they do have a seriously potent effect on the color of your skin. 

You can control how much of an effect the chemicals have by the frequency of which you apply them, because your skin will naturally start to turn back to it's original color if the cream is not applied, over a period of weeks. 

However the basic idea is that you will turn out completely white. For more information on those chemicals, see safe skin bleaching treatments, and this CNN article on the illegal skin bleaching trade in the UK.

That article is about the sale of creams containing hydroquinone, which is a banned substance in the UK. The other ingredients I mentioned are not banned, and can be found in quality skin lightening products like the ones on this site, and in the links in this post.
