Skin lightening creams for black skin! Is it beauty or self hate? by Jasmine Campbell  Skin lightening creams for black skin, have been a divisive issue for black women. Whether in the USA, Europe the Caribbean, South America...skin lightening creams, have held a taboo standing in the black community, yet women continue to use the creams, in order to attain a beauty standard, that is seen all too often with artists such as Nicki Minaj, Beyonce or Rhianna all of whom have been rumoured to use specialist skin lightening creams regularly. The theme almost always remains the same: lighter skinned black women, holding the candle as being the pinnacle of a black woman’s beauty, which essentially is a pseudo European, which is particularly evident in the music industry, with Beyonce Carter (Nee Knowles) being the most common example of this. Its quite bizarre. Now if we add the near obsessive fascination that so many, dumb African American men have with white and Latina women, we see the same theme: Lighter skinned women. So…………………. Skin lightening creams: Are they good, or  bad for black women? To answer this, we have to take an objective stance regarding skin lightening creams, and the reasons that black women use them. The basic argument against skin lightening creams is that it represents to some, a form of self-hate, a selling out of our collective African descent, and heritage regardless of whether we are Black people from the Caribbean, Latin America, the United States, or Europe. However, that argument in itself could be said to be flawed because of the diverse range of shades of black, on the African continent itself. From seeing extremely light skinned Nigerian Igbo and Fulani women, some even having green and grey eyes, to the deepest, richest blue black of women in South Sudan, and every shade in between, it can be said conversely that the whole argument, about skin lightening creams being about self-hate, is a flawed argument, due to the fact that there are numerous naturally light skinned people in Africa. Although the Western media, and ignorant slave minded, coonish blacks have a fetish about portraying Black people, as literally only having one super dark shade throughout Africa. So is using skin lightening cream really a form of self hate? Or is it African American women, trying to actually look more Igbo, Fulani or Northern Somali and get closer to their African roots? It is an alternative viewpoint. But, due to the negativity that has been directed at Black men, and especially dark skinned black men, and the behaviour that blacks display themselves, like for instance, overtly favourable attitudes  toward lighter skinned blacks, one can see, that often, the choice to use a skin lightening cream, is a psychological one. In short, a person who uses skin lightening creams, at the deepest level of their being, believes that by becoming lighter, they will feel better about themselves, and they will be treated more favourably. It is as simple as that. This is a choice, just as wearing mascara, lipstick, or using hair relaxer, hair weaves, getting a line up, shaving etc, these are all efforts, to change how you look naturally, and present yourself to the world even if it is completely and obviously unnatural. Strippers, who have of late become a form of celebrity in the African American community, are prime examples of this, and are the antithesis of a natural image, and are an exaggeration of sorts.   It’s a choice, and if one feels they want to use skin lightening creams, then they can, if they choose to.  The real question regarding skin lightening creams, really should be………….… safety. The majority of skin lightening creams on the market, that black women buy from neighbourhood beauty stores, owned by Korean and Pakistani businessmen, in the United States and United Kingdom respectively, are completely unsafe. They willingly sell DEATH to black women!                                                                                                                       Dangerous ingredients, such as Mercury, Steroids and even fucking battery acid, have been found in such skin lightening creams, sold by neighbourhood beauty stores owned by Koreans and Pakistanis, leading to burning, skin discolouration, liver damage and even skin cancer in some users! That just shows the hatred, and contempt these people have for Black women, that they would sell products that will kill them! It’s almost, as if there is a sanctioned effort to destroy black women by the sellers of such dangerous skin lightening creams, in the neighbourhood beauty stores. Indeed, why black women would subject themselves into going to such badly laid out stores, with disgusting customer service, I will never understand. MagusHermes.com, a specialist black skincare company, has developed skin lightening creams that uses only natural plant ingredients. Additionally the organic skin lightening creams created by Magus Hermes, use enzymes, to lighten dark patches, and even out the skintone, that are safe, and actually nourish the skin. Seeing the need for a safe skin lightening product, the founders of the company ensured that all skin lightening creams made by MagusHermes.com undergo 128 separate quality tests, to certify safety, quality and effectiveness. Popular amoung the wealthy and celebrity clients which include RnB singers,  actresses, and models, Magus Hermes natural skin lightening creams, helps to make skin look more radiant. The founding of  companies such as Magus Hermes, has allowed black women, who choose to use skin lightening creams, to feel safer and more comfortable using them. Intelligent black women know, that the creams made by such specialist companies, are safe like skin lightening creams from MagusHermes.com , rather than black women, who take serious chances with their health, and looks, by buying dangerous chemicals in a jar, marked as “skin lightening” or “bleaching cream”, from messy neighbourhood hair and beauty stores, owned by people who truly hate, and low key, disrespect them everytime they enter the store.
