Tooro Kingdom Princess Ruth Komuntale has resorted to bleaching her body for unknown reasons.
According to the latest pictures we obtained, the beautiful princess must have spent weeks smearing her body with bleaching detergents with the aim of becoming browner.
The Tooro princess who is also unlucky in love is not the first Ugandan in the elite class to bleach the body.
Former Rubaga division mayor Peter Ssematimba was also accused of bleaching his body that allover a sudden changed to brownish color.
Former city socialite and jail bird Shanita Namuyimbwa well known as bad black also bleached her body and she was severely blasted by people on social media.
Bleaching creams work by stripping the skin of its natural pigmentation.
However in dark skinned people the pigmentation is the skin’s natural protection from the sun`s strong radiations.
Bleaching doesn’t just superficially lighten the skin it changes the skin’s normal structure removing and inhibiting the production of melanin by cells called melanocytes.
Once the skin has been ‘bleached’ it loses its natural protective barrier making it susceptible to damage by the sun’s radiations and it is the reason why most if not all bleach creams come with instructions advising people to use sun protection creams called sunscreens along with the product.
Persistent use of these bleaching products will leave the skin lighter but also leave it more vulnerable to damage.
