Skin Bleaching In Jamaica - A New Trend

by Renee Morris
((Student) St. Catherine)

Now a days we seem to have various types of trends in Jamaica, but today I'm going to look at a specific one that I know some viewers are going to ask the question why is it a trend or how does it become a trend. Today will be looking at "Bleaching".


Bleaching seem to becoming a huge trend in Jamaica, its like if you're not bleaching you are not following or you're not on track with the trend. Sometimes I wonder why people bleach, so I thought the best way for me to find out is to conduct a survey.

Some of the responses were that they bleach because they want to look more attractive and have a lighter complexion. While others say they bleach because they want to be able to show their tattoos, they even go as far to say they bleach because others are doing it, foolish isn't it?.

I don't have a problem with people and their bleaching because it fits some person. Don't get me wrong, I have to admit that I love to see some of them, but if it was me bleaching and I saw that bleaching doesn't fit me I would stop instantly because am only destroying my skin more.

Now I have a huge problem if your attending school and your bleaching. In my opinion I think that it is very inappropriate to be going to school and you're bleaching, I think you're just spoiling your childish appearance.

And believe it or not some persons bleach until they become addicted to it, its like if they don't rub on any cream for one day they are going to mad. I've seen it happen to persons and trust me its not a nice thing.

Bleaching also comes with side effects like skin cancer, skin melanin gets thin and lighter, skin easily bruised and stretch marks starts to appear.

In some cases where a person is bleaching meets in an accident and they got injured with cuts it takes a long period of time for that person to get better and they are at more risk of getting bacteria.

I am not saying not to bleach but bleach with caution and do not go over board with it.

There is no bleaching in moderation as the slightest infraction to the skin can result into life-changing reactions.

People are still mentally enslaved and will remain captive in their minds if they fail to see themselves and their capabilities as nothing of skin tone but of self-worth, determination and hard work.

It is time we move away from the notion that black is not good and the 'browning' is the way to go. We are all talented in our own way and should monopolize on our skills rather than seek to change our skin tone.

By the way, how many of our self-made browning and skin toners are employed in the meaningful workforce here in Jamaica?

Not many as there are still rules governing the workforce. The schools are also fighting the battle and so far seems to be on top of the game....What of tattoos?
