I don’t bleach my skin, I only lighten it – Actress Khanyi Mbau
For a while now media personality and actress Khanyi Mbau’s complexion getting lighter has been a major topic of discussion on various platforms in South Africa, with many believing she bleached her skin.
But during a recent program on VOOV, Khanyi addressed the subject of her lightening. “There’s this thing where people believe that I bleach my skin. I don’t bleach my skin, I lighten it. There is a difference between lightening and bleaching, and people just don’t get it,” Khanyi said.
Khanyi also explained how her skin got to its pinkish skin saying; “”People who (are) lightening their skins using gallons and overdose on (skin whitening products) glutathione tend to have skin like mine. Pinkish, lightish, like an albino colour,” Khanyi said.
“My skin does (have this complexion) because I overdo everything in life. There is no side effects. All it does is make me lighter and it is like having loads of vitamin C, which means I don’t get the flu easily,” Khanyi added.
