Mercy Aigbe on skin lightening
Actress Mercy Aigbe is of the opinion that ladies who want to make their skin lighter should do so, as long as they don’t harm themselves.
Aigbe, who owns a fashion store, Mag Divas Boutique, said most women did it because it was what men wanted.
“It depends on the individual, and I’ve always respected people’s opinion and how they choose to live their life. If you feel you are dark and you want to make yourself lighter; if that will earn you confidence and comfort, I’d say go for it, but do not damage your skin in the process,” she said.
“I keep telling my clients that my products are not chemical based, they are made of herbs, so you don’t need to exercise fear over my products. In the process of looking for comfort and confidence however, please do not get your life affected, because a lot of people have lost their lives because of this.”
“And as for men who fall victim of the impersonators, I think the ladies are actually giving you what you want, so please appreciate people with dark, naturally looking girls. Therefore, guys are to blame for their actions. So on this note; we are going to go into men’s fashion in the nearest future,” she added.
