K Michelle from Love & Hip Hop is being accused of bleaching her skin, some are even calling her "Caucasian K" because of her new look. K Michelle has spoken openly about undergoing plastic surgery operations, to reconstruct her body.
But new photos suggest that she has used plastic surgery, to adjust her skin color also. The pics were released yesterday, and they show K Michelle looking MUCH LIGHTER than ever before.
There are many different bleaching creams which are available over the counter to treat these dark spots and lighten the skin. These creams work by reducing a pigment called melanin in the skin. When the skin is exposed to UV or sun light more melanin is produced which tends to discolor the skin and produce these sun spots. Skin lightening products may combine hydroquinones, licorice, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and other bleaching ingredients.
There are also a number of surgical procedures that Black women can undergo, that will allow then to "bleach or lighten their skin. One procedure, involves a laser which "zaps" the melanin out of a patients skin.
