Socialite Khanyi Mbau, has addressed the issue surrounding her decision to lighten her skin.

She revealed that she started bleaching her skin back in 2011 after releasing that white makeup artists couldn’t cater for her skin tone.

She said in order to solve the issue, she started taking Glutathione IV drips and pills, which became useless.

After the Glutathione failed, Khanyi said her next step was to use surface products which resulted in best results.

Khanyi explained that by bleaching her skin, she is not looking down upon darker skinned people.

She said it was simply a personal choice to whiten her skin and look fresh.
