A story about a parent who should have known better than bleaching a child's skin.

She bleached my skin, without my knowledge.

She bleached my skin, without my knowledge. 🖤💔🖤

My name is Lusanda Mngadi, a 24 year old girl who had came from farmlands, esigodini sakwa KwaMadlala. Coming from a broken home we moved a lot ,our journey led us to Durban 💙 iTheku lodumo. Where we experienced a drastic change in our lives because of how fast the city moved.

So much pressure! We needed to blend in, learn and adapt. We started drinking, smoking and losing ourselves in the midst of all that but what affected my life worst was a skin bleaching cream that was put in lotion that me and my older sister used.

My younger sister sister was lighter in skin ,who would bleach a yellow bone?! 🤷So they bought her , her own lotion.

Weeks passed and I realized I was getting lighter in skin colour. I started to get compliments from people,they said I was more beautiful. I did not understand how or why it was happening but I found it less complicated to fit in. I got friends and guys who thought I was insanely beautiful but one day I saw this cream tube in the grownups bathroom at home. I did some research on it and found out what it was.

I realized it had been put in our lotion for sometime by a grown up who should have known better, as we had trusted in her. My older sister was not around much ,so it did not affect her as much as it did with me. It started to burn and eat away my flash, itchy and sometimes causes rash. Pink cheeks and a burning sensation with white wholes appearing in your body until you start hiding from the sun,then people.

Why not stop using? I tried. It ate away more of my skin, rashes , burning and I was 10 shades darker than my original. It's is addictive ,for a minute it boosts your confidence and for a Lifetime, it takes it away.💔

I so someday wish to have the courage to ask "was I not beautiful enough?". Till this day it continues to eat on my flash.

Thank you for reading.💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤💙🖤

😩💔 For those who have not used. Please do not even start. 😟🙏
