The late great Michael Jackson certainly isn’t the last celebrity to have bleached his skin. There’s been a significant number of stars who are bleaching their skin. Retired baseball legend Sammy Sosa, model Blac Chyna, and singer-actress Tamar Braxton are some of the celebrities who have opted for whiter, clearer skin.
Baseball legend Sammy Sosa first came into the public spotlight as a 21-year old player for the Texas Rangers in the late ‘80s. He went on to build a memorable career with more than 600 home runs. But since his retirement, his skin has also transformed from brown-skinned to one that’s noticeably lighter. In fact, he can qualify for a white man these days.
Sosa has not been ashamed to admit that he used a bleaching cream to white his skin tone. In a 2009 interview, he said the cream not only bleached his skin but also softened it. He also went on to say that he’s happy with his decision.
Model and reality TV star Blac Chyna has also been accused of bleaching her skin. Unlike Sosa who has been open about it, the celebrity who’s also known to be reality star Rob Kardashian’s ex-wife has been mum on the issue.
Yet it is also widely known that Chyna has undergone plastic surgery through the years, which has resulted to a noticeable change in looks. It is thus not surprising if she has elected to bleach her skin.

Singer, actress and reality star Tamar Braxton has repeatedly denied allegations that she has undergone skin bleaching. While she has admitted to having a nose procedure done before, she remains firm that she has never bleached her skin although comparing her photos today with old pictures suggests otherwise.
There are other celebrities who have also been accused of bleaching their skin. The list includes music superstars Beyonce, Lil Kim, and Nicki Minaj. However, many observers say that the skin tone of these celebrities could not have been due to bleaching but more of a combination of make-up and lighting changes to make them look whiter.
The trend of celebrities bleaching their skin reveals that preference for white complexion remains widely held up to this day. This is the case even in regions like Asia and Africa where fair-skinned people are regarded as more attractive than those with sun-kissed skin.
Skin whitening products are further contributing to this phenomenon. Today, one can easily buy a skin whitening cream or lotion in brick and mortar stores or online. But not all skin whitening products are effective and safe.
Intilight Intimate Lightener is an exception. Our skin whitening cream developed by Florida-based dermatologist Dr. Tom Balshi works by changing the way the body produces melanin, a pigment that is responsible for the skin’s brown color. By inhibiting the accumulation or growth of melanin, it helps to lighten the skin’s color in any part of the body even in intimate areas like the anus and vagina.
In short, you don’t need to be a big-time celebrity or spend a lot of money to achieve a white, smoother skin. You can use Intilight skin lightener now and soon you’ll have a fairer complexion even in your sensitive body parts.
