With all the talk about loving yourself, you’d think that celebrities would start hopping in on this new movement. Yes, there’s Alicia Keys with the no-makeup look, Jennifer Lawrence with being vocal about not getting a diet, and Demi Lovato being open about rehab. Some several celebrities have embraced and shared their imperfections with the rest of the world. However, not everyone has embraced their imperfections and accepted their natural looks. When it comes to skin color, there’s no denying that the rest of Hollywood still prefer to have lighter and fairer skin. Whether it’s skin lightening or bleaching, having fair skin seems to be a beauty trend that will not go out of style anytime soon. Here are just some of those skin bleached celebrities.
Top 5 Skin Bleached Celebrities
1. Latoya Jackson
Like her brother, Latoya Jackson has been rumored to have undergone bleaching treatments to make her skin lighter. While some come to her defense and claim that she has vitiligo, the skin condition where parts of the skin experience depigmentation, a good number of people believe that this is not true. Photos of Latoya Jackson have shown that her became lighter over time until it eventually became so obvious that she’s undergone whitening treatments.
2. Nicki Minaj
If you’ve seen Nicki Minaj’s high school photos, you’ll be sure that she wasn’t as white as she is now. The young Minaj was a lot darker – similar to having a brown color – while the Nicki Minaj as people know her now has a very fair complexion. The singer is also rumored to have gone under the knife for her cheeks, breasts, and buttocks.
Even the Queen B is not immune to skin whitening treatments. After advocating for real beauty, girl power, and equality, Beyonce is rumored to have used skin whitening products and treatments to achieve the color of her skin now (which is light brown as compared to her former brown skin tone). Although this seems like a disappointment to her fans, Beyonce has continued to inspire girls and women alike to embrace confidence and beauty.
4. Blac Chyna
Although Blac Chyna has never really left the spotlight, she is part of the breaking news again thanks to a Snapchat video she posted. The video was a short zoom-in/zoom-out snap featuring the celebrity’s fingernails. Fans immediately noticed the change in skin tone even if there is room for filters. Nonetheless, the change in skin color is so drastic she can already pass for a “white girl”.
5. Nene Leakes
Unlike other celebrities who have dismissed the whitening rumors, Nene Leakes has been vocal about being proud to be a “brown girl bitch” according to her Instagram post. In a photo she first posted, people started gossiping about the change in her skin color that the actress was compelled to defend herself. Yes, she might have had her nose fixed twice, but that doesn’t mean she has also undergone skin whitening.
Even celebrities whom people consider as role models and having perfect bodies and faces are not immune to insecurities. Some still believe that having fairer skin is more beautiful and DIY skin bleaching has never been more popular.
