Nollywood actressVera Gerald has a nugget for ladies who bleach their skin to impress men, in a new Instagram post she shared.
Vera Gerald whose post aimed at advising women to feel comfortable in their skin, also stated that she wish the Nigerian Government will also ban use of bleaching products in the country, just like Ghana. According to the actress who noted that her light skin is natural, she wouldn’t have cared if it was black because she admires people with clean black skin too.
Her post reads;
WEDNESDAY WISDOM: Embrace Your Body
Maybe the Nigerian Govt should also follow in the steps of Ghana which recently banned bleaching products in the country. It appears that these days, everyone is light skinned- even those whose mothers and fathers are charcoal black. My light skin is natural, and i won’t have cared if it was black because i really do admire people with clean black skin as well; however it’s becoming a big embarrassment to me when i meet new people and they’re asking me, “What cream do you use, i want to have a skin as light as yours.
I dont know if any of you naturally light-skinned people can relate . Please, whatever skin complexion you were born with, learn to appreciate it. There is more to you than your skin colour. Being light skinned will not make you more attractive than the person with a lovely black skin. It’s pointless trying to impress any man by bleaching, because he doesnt want you the way God created you. If you need to bleach to impress a man and keep him, you will eventually lose him when your skin gets damaged. And your previously lovely dark skinned would have been lost for the right people to admire. God doesnt make a mistake. Believe in yourself. #embraceyourbody..
