I bleached my skin with lemon as I was the only black girl amongst my fair friends – Tiwa Savage reveals 2

Tiwa is one of the black and glamorous celebrities with melanin-rich skin, but her announcement has surprised her followers, despite the fact that she is already black and beautiful.

Speaking in an interview with Allure Magazine, the mother of one admitted that she felt out of place among her peers who had lighter skin as a child and tried to change hers to match theirs.

She began bleaching at the age of 14 and used a bleaching cream laced with citrus, according to her.

She mentioned that the blended cream had an effect on her body, as she still has some spots of infected skin on her back as a result of the use.

Tiwa also admits that, by no longer bleaching her face, she is still unsure about who she is in her own skin.

she said;

“I actually did try to bleach my skin when I was about, I think 14 or 15 years. Even now I have patches on my back. My mom was cleaning my room and saw the cream that I used to mix with lemons. She wasn’t angry. it was more her disappointment. So I stopped but I was always insecure about being dark.”
