In a recent interview with The Shade Room, American actress and model Meagan Monique Good explained how skin lightening was the most shameful experience she ever had since an unlicensed esthetician treated her skin for sun damage.
According to the actress, months after the treatment, she started noticing her complexion getting lighter, which triggered many people accusing her of bleaching her skin.
In the interview, Meagan, while addressing the claims of her bleaching her skin and narrating what happened, she said:
“I went to an unlicensed esthetician who convinced me that I needed to get rid of some sun damage. And a few months later, I am like five shades lighter than I actually am and it was a really traumatic experience because I really trusted the person.”
“I kept asking her through the process, like ‘Is this what’s supposed to happen?’ She’s like, ‘Oh it’ll lift and it’ll come back.’ I got to the place of realizing I don’t know if it’s going to come back, I think I’ve been bamboozled.”
“It was super embarrassing and super painful especially in the climate we’re in as black women,” she said.
