Who steal my bleaching?
My precious bleaching?
I buy am for shopping
For forty naira
How I go yellow?
How I go find out?
Who say you fine?
Na lie, you no fine at all!
At all, na lie! – Yellow Fever by Fela Kuti
The phenomenon of skin bleaching is a practice found within Africa and its Diaspora. It is fueled by global white supremacy and the internalised racism that it generates among Africans and other racialized people.
In the 1976 song – “Yellow Fever” – the Afrobeat superstar, Fela Kuti, interrogates the obsession with bleaching in Nigerian society and derides our fixation with light skin as a marker of beauty.
Fast-forward to 2013, the skin bleaching and beauty industry continues to bloom in Nigeria as a record number of women, 77% according to the World Health Organisation, increasingly engage in daily routines of bleaching and “toning” in order to order to change or “maintain” the colour of their skin.
For most Nigerian women, achieving fair skin is of utmost importance even if doing so means harming their bodies. And with chemical agents such as hydroquinone and mercury often contained in these creams, the chances of causing damage to their skin and bodies are high.  Some of the chemicals found in these products can lead to greater risks of skin cancer, kidney failures and liver damage.

DrySkin

If you are effected by any disease, any weather or due to age and result into dryness of skin and feeling disappointment and frustration Don’t worry. There are number of natural and home made things which can be helpful to you to resolve these issues. Today we are going to discuss a few natural remedies for dry skin, which are normally easily available almost in your kitchen and you will not have to pay a lot of your money like costly dry skin products which can create a whole in your pocket.

Bath with Oatmeal

 

People knew about the skin soothing properties even as long as 4000 years ago. Against the history of home remedies, it would be a crime to leave it out to discuss. Grind oatmeal to a fine powder or buy from your pharmacy the Aveeno variety, if this is too much work to grind. Pour the two cups of grounded oatmeal and enjoy the lukewarm bath. Tie it and use it to wash your body, you can also put some of the ground oatmeal in a washcloth.

Almond oil, Honey and Milk Bath

 

You will have to fill your bath tub with milk, if you want to bathe like Cleopatra. We understand that a tub full of milk is a bit too much. The combination of powder milk, honey and almond oil. Mix 250gr milk powder and ½ spoon of almond oil and 2 tablespoon of honey in the warm water and take a bath. You can add a few drops of your favorite perfume in it for the purpose of smell. As for as I know this would be one of the best natural remedies dry skin. Dream yourself into ancient Egypt or any other place you would rather be right now by ease yourself into this royal bath.
