Real Housewives Of Potomac is going to be good. This season there is quite a bit of drama brewing between housewives Wendy and Nneka who are both Nigerian.
But Media Take Out has learned that there’s another pretty interesting development on the show…. Wendy’s mother seems to get lighter and lighter every season.
This is Wendy’s mother from the last episode of the series. She almost looks like a white woman. But she wasn’t always so light-skinned.
This is what mom looked like a few years ago:
And here’s an older picture of Wendy’s mother, she wasn’t light-skinned at all:
Apparently something happened to her complexion… and people on social media are suspecting that Wendy’s mom might be bleaching her skin.
As Media Take Out reported, skin lightening is considered a “common” beauty treatment in Africa and South Asia. Skin lightening doesn’t have quite as negative connotations as it does in the US.
Typically, people use the drug hydroquinone as a depigmentation agent. A person can purchase a 2% solution over the counter or request a prescription for a stronger 4% solution. Results usually appear within 3-6 months of using hydroquinone once or twice daily.
Hydroquinone has many potential side effects. It can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so it is important to use sunscreen. Some other possible side effects include:
- blue-gray skin discoloration
- Skin irritation and redness
- Damage to the skin
- Skin dryness
- false rise in blood sugar in a blood sugar test that uses blood from capillaries
