Some women, in particular, are under pressure to conform to the generic, light-skinned conception of “beautiful”.

There are various beauty trends in Ghana. However, this harmful trend, which often involves bleaching, has become worryingly common even among already wildly successful celebrities.

Some women may argue that skin bleaching is a personal decision just as a nose job, breast implants, removal of scars or applying of makeup might be.

Some women use milk or parazone, but the latest and weirdest of them all is the use of cement to whiten their skin. Desperate to get light skin, women mix the cement with pepsodent and apply it to their skin regardless of publicized effects such as leukaemia and cancers of the liver and kidneys; as well as a severe skin condition like ochronosis, a form of hyper-pigmentation which causes the skin to turn a dark purple shade.
