Maheeda posts “Before Bleaching” Photos



maheedaControversial musician Maheeda shared some ‘before bleaching’ photos on her Instagram page – @m9ja1.

Bleaching/skin lightening has always been around but in the past few years more sophisticated methods have increased its popularity among celebs, starlets and the everyday African woman.

To an extent, there’s still a stigma attached to it so many do not readily admit to the source of their new skin tone.

Her followers reactions varied. Some asked where they can purchase the lightening products, “I love your results” to saying she didn’t need it.

We wonder if this will ‘encourage’ others to post their before bleaching photos as well.

      And the bleachers always end up looking red, grey or embalmed. It is very sad o.

    I love it. Don’t get me wrong, I think bleaching is unsafe and all but if you’re going to bleach be bold and proud enough to embrace it and own that you bleached.

    I really wish older women who bleached in their younger days can come out and tell people the downside to this. Yes, it’s true, you’re only young once, but don’t forget you will grow older. All this crap they put on their bodies will show so bad in future.

    These days , bleaching can be done safely for those who wants it., you do not have to rely on creams, there are tablets these days that slows down the homone that makes you black, thereby , reducing your blackness .blacks do not really bleach comparing to asian s.a country like south korea has perfected the way to bleach that they are actually becomming whiter than white people.they have actually changed the face of their population by plastic surgeries , which to be honest , they are the best in the world when it comes to plastic surgeries and to be fair , their result is good.they now have more beautiful looking people more than most asian can use that moderately cos over doing things are not good has to be a matter of choice, not cos others are doing it

    Bleaching can has harmful effects even on bone saw a lady who came to the orthopedic clinic she had severe lower back pains and was crying, the doctors couldn’t find a cause till they asked her about her cream, they found out it contained steroids, when she stopped using it, the pain subsided till it disappeared. Why ruin your health, your skin, put yourself at risk for skin cancer etc just to go a few shades lighter, she should ask herself if lighter skin is really worth her life. All is vanity. Vanity upon vanity!

    Warris all dis? I thought I grew up in the generation of black and proud youth, but it appears to not be the case. That there is a debate about is beyond shocking.

    I think better forms and methods have been put to reform bleaching in a more healthier and safer ways than the past years but still the best is to glow and live in your natural skin. I think God didn’t make mistake while he created her black and not white#Be proud of you#

    The Most High (God) made her naturally beautiful. Now she has ruined what was naturally beautiful and will suffer for it in the future.
