How To Lighten Skin

The main reason many Kenyan women go to great lengths to lighten their skin relates to local perceptions that light skinned women are more beautiful. While skin color is mainly a matter of genes, there are a number methods one can use to make skin lighter or prevent it from darkening. These skin lightening methods can be categorized broadly as natural or commercial.


Natural Skin Lightening

  • Natural aloe vera - the pure gel inside aloe vera leaves will make your skin look brighter over time. You can grow aloe vera at home in a pot or old plastic container. 
  • Pawpaw - smearing pawpaw on your face not only lightens your skin over time, but it is also a great anti-aging agent.
  • Lemons - lemons are a natural bleaching agent. Pour a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon onto your hands, mix with your lotion and apply all over the body.
  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight - the sun can darken the skin over time. Wear sunglasses to protect the area around the skin.
  • Sleep well and avoid stress - lack of adequate sleep and stress has been proven to darken skin over time. 
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Maintain a balanced diet at all times. Darkened skin can be a sign that you aren't getting sufficient nutrients. 


Commercial Skin Lightening Products


  • Buy a skin lightening product that contains alpha-arbutin. This is the active ingredient which inhibits melanin production. Melanin is responsible for dark skin. Black people have more melanin than light skinned people. Follow the instructions on the pack and if you encounter side effects stop using the product and consult a doctor immediately.  
  • Use sunscreen - To avoid the effects of the sun, use a sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful rays.
  • Chemical peel - visit a dermatologist and get a chemical peel monthly. This removes the top skin layer to reveal the lighter skin underneath.
  • Laser treatments are now also an option if you have a fat bank account.

Tips & Warnings on Skin Lightening

  • Avoid any skin lightening products that contain hydroquinone, mercury, or steroids. These have dangerous side effects. 
  • Skin lightening pills don't work and actually a scam. Only Glutathione injections have an effect on skin pigmentations.
  • Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Have self-esteem, you don't need to lighten your skin to be loved or admired.

8 Ways to Spot Fake News

Fake, false or fabricated news is deliberate misinformation to influence public opinion, drive an agenda or achieve some other purpose. The misinformation or hoaxes are normally spread via social media but also via traditional mainstream media.


Tips to Identify Fake News

It is possible to spot fake news. The following are a few ways to tell if a story is genuine.

1) Consider the Source

Look carefully at the source of the story. Who has published the story? Is it a respected individual or institution. Check their 'About Us' page and read their mission and check if they have published any contact information. Also, look at the URL carefully. Small changes in the URL can make a story appear to come from a reputable site, for example, a fake news creator could register a domain that closely resembles a genuine news website.

2) Be Skeptical of Headlines

False stories usually have catchy headlines that almost seem unbelievable. These are known as click bait, an unethical publishing practice of writing deliberately false headlines to encourage to click and read the story.

3) Check the Author

Is the author of the story credible? Are they real? Do a quick search to find out. Also, like all forgeries, fake news created by amateurs will usually contain spelling mistakes and grammatical errors that a reputable organization will hardly make. These are a dead giveaway that a story is fabricated.

4) Check the Date

Old stories are often regurgitated even when they are irrelevant to current events.

5) Check your own Biases

Could your own belief system be clouding your judgment? Creators of fake news take advantage of people's biases, for example, stories that are racist or hate speech will often be accepted as gospel truth by persons who are already biased.

6) Supporting Sources

Does the story have any supporting sources? If so, click on the links and see if the source information supports the story. Is there any other news source reporting the same story? If there isn't, then that could be an indication that the story is false.

7) Is it a Joke?

Some stories are intentionally false. For example, on April fools day, many media organizations fool their readers with fabricated stories.

8) If in Doubt, Ask an Expert

If after all the above, you still aren't sure, ask a subject matter expert. Alternatively, you can consult a fact checking website such as Infohub by sending us a comment below and we will get back to you with the truth.
