Although it had been years Khanyi Mbau stopped her skin bleaching process and adapted to the cosmetic products, Mbau seems to be unsatisfied, and thus, and has developed second thoughts about adapting to her usual skin whitening process.
People are too perplexed by Khanyi’s commitment to skin bleaching, and at the same time, Khanyi always mentions that one should be proud of their skin tone, therefore, people always question her, and even bash her because she herself isn’t confident with her skin color but is asking other people to develop confidence.
Moreover, Khanyi Mbau shares all of her skin whitening process and tips on her videos, and shockingly, there were numerous people curious about her skin whitening process and were wanting to know the details.
Clearing out everyone’s perplexity, Khanyi tells,
It started out as a quick solution to sunburns when I used to drive my Peugeot 206 cc. I played Doobsie, then I was out of continuity coz I was very dark from the sun; bought a cheap bleaching cream; it did wonders, so I enjoyed my ride and didn’t p_ss off production. A few months into this new hack, I liked my lighter look. It made me feel rich, and I was getting all the compliments on my glow-up! Ego booster. I then fell in love with the girl in the mirror, and chose this packaging for brand Khanyi like Beyonce chose her big fan on stage. To sum it up, the journey has been cool but with great difficulty that none of you should have to face coz nobody wants to address this issue – and this is an age-long game.
