It is not a problem for Somali ladies only. It is a world wide problem that engulfs the five Continents. The white ladies use tanning extensively to be less pale. I think all women are striving for brown color. No body knows the ingredients of these chemicals, they could contain very hazardous contents that can pose health problems for them. I would advice all ladies to avoid skin bleaching. Natural color is the best, I think.

All black girls bleach. African girls are the worst, and indians are even worse they die for bleaching. White people get naked on beaches to tan and wear fake tan all year round. Life is funny

I swear, I've notice that most of the Somali women in my city who bleach are from Djibouti.
What's wrong with beautiful dark, brown skin?
The only purpose for using skin bleach is too lighten scars from acne.

How can you bleach your skin from a yummy chocolate drink to a disgusting pee drink from the poorest bantu people in Africa?

Probably Djibouti ppl are still slaves of French people thats why they wanna look like them aswell.

We've seen your youtube videos LOL you are Bleaching your face yourself LOL. J/K

Skin bleaching is like drugs the same thing applies to tanning. when a person starts it, they cannot stop and,eventually it will kill them. It also does not change DNA so, kids will still be dark and, it will expose you when walking with them.

be thankful for the skin allah has given you
Embrace it dont change it, because black is truly beautiful.. only people with low self esteem change thier apperance or skin tone. Who said looking pale is a sign of beauty?

Somali men are pushing them to bleach themselves "it doesnt matter her look she has to be light skinned". i personaly experienced thank God im not changing for anybody. i felt in love with this guy who ignored me 2years ago, he dated another with big butt then i thought if i had that one bigger he might want me lmao Forget about bleaching im already light brown. I used to sleep tears on my face. Now i became a woman my body developped He then said "you're a whole package then ask for marriage" what is the point of been with someone that doesnt love for who u are.
I love somali

I agree with Foxy girl 100%.Somali guys push these sisters to bleach themselves because over 90%of somali dudes have a bias for light skined women.Therefore this makes both dark and chocolate skined feel insecure of themselves,they feel they're not "good enough" They've been made to believe that light skin is more beautiful and attractive.As a result,they resort to bleaching becoz they believe that they'll be attractive because most somali dudes are attracted to light girls and IGNORE the other shades of colour.Correct me if i'm wrong but thats my observation.Somali sisters can attest to this.

no nothing to do with somali men its a euro-centralised thing I mean somali girls of uk traying to look like the arabic women when nowadays the arab girl wants to look like a white girl with her makeup and the funny thing is her hijaab and her arabic features like her nose with that makeup making her looks like together stupid just like black african girl with red her what an Stupid look!
Yes somali guys love midab furan girl but I see in uk a lot of naturally light girls who gone like an arab girls even without make up they never knows satisfaction but also she never looks like a genetically light skinned girl like I see this young mum who her husband is dark but she is light yet all her children are dark and she was carrying her daughter who looks like her not her dad yet the girl was too was dark! so I guessed the mum use to be dark becouse in somali way evry kid will take the color of the parent he looks like in most cases some times the kid doesn't look like one of them if one of the parents has afro-arab look/light with african features and the other dark with caucasian features there is no middle look that the kids will take so go for a person who looks like to you so all the kids will have some of your features
