Seriously, it's all the exact same thread. Over and over and over and over again.

If you look at the post history any of the above usernames you will see the EXACT same topic repeated ad nauseum.

This! Can we close this thread now?

Many people have lightened up by bleaching.

Skincaretalk...I think I said this already.

See Mshoza

This is why IMO tanning is better & safer than bleaching. How can one slurp themselves in something as strong as 10% HQ & still look okay considering HQ is banned even at 2%. So you think you can apply it at 10% & not melt?

Not sure if you are doing this for fun but lots of vulnerable people like OP will try this only to end up either patch burnt or dead! I think you mean well but stop!

OP you are so misguided it is just sad. think of some of these beautiful creatures.

S.O.S. BAND - Take your time (Do it right) (1980) extended version - YouTube

The only one who concludes that you are not beautiful due to your skin tone is you. Few others think that. Sad to think that someone is beautiful and does not know it.

Yes please, I just got a mean rep from this person. At first I was like what! then I died laughing. I was actually trying to relate as lot of women like attention too, but oh well.

Actually, the problem seems to be that you DO accept it.

Well you could bleach your skin, or just learn to accept who you are and be happy being you. Some one can not love you until you learn to love an accept your own self. After all you can not really do to much to change your skin color aside from the above mentioned. No one is perfect and we all have things we would like to change about our self, but eventually you have to learn to be happy in your own skin.

I'm still happy - there's more to life than comparing myself to Photoshopped pictures of women I'll never look like. The models in those ads have the same or worse problems as everyone else on this earth, regardless of how they look or what color their skin is. Think of all the drop-dead gorgeous movie stars of both sexes who deal with addictions, relationship problems, and suicide, just like everyone else.
