I'm an african lady age 26. I want a lighter complexion and heard that celebs. Like Oprha and the rest bleached and whiten their skin. Is this true. I want to do this as well. Can someone advise me on this. Please don't answer saying I have a beautiful skin and I should be happy with what I have got. I need concrete answer. Please!

And where in the USA or Europe can I whiten or bleach my skin permanent?

Thanks.
