The great scandal launched by the famous beauty company L’oreal back in 2008 when Beyonce was bleached to make a more appealing impression on the public is still engraved in the consciousness of people especially when it comes to the African American community. The new wave of celebrity gossips also generated a set of Beyonce skin bleaching rumors circulating in the tabloids. The bleached hair seems not to be the top attraction of the young diva who also succeeded to grab the attention of the paparazzi with her lighter complexion shade.

The super-popular 29 years old singer looked far too lighter than on her usual performances and red carpet appearances. There are an infinite number of reasons for this, however, some might blame the light conditions other a natural reaction that has nothing to do with cosmetic or skin treatments. On the other hand, a small group of the fans might still accuse Beyonce of purposefully altering her skin color.

During a shopping binge in Hollywood the young diva is spotted wearing a pair of $1,021 jade suede Daffodile heels by Christian Louboutin.

The media was quick and immortalized the event launching a real debate over her light skin tone. They even asked the opinion of a consultant dermatologist, Dr. Sunil Chopra, who claimed to that: ‘The most effective skin-lightening agents are hydroquinone and kojic acid, creams which patients apply to the skin.

‘The effects are temporary and work by inhibiting the enzyme … responsible for the skin’s pigment. Both are very popular. I see maybe three people every week who want this procedure. Additionally, the skin specialist is also eager to bust these rumors and states that: ‘But it cannot be used over the whole body. It is very unlikely she has had her skin bleached in this way.’

Apparently, Beyonce is not that bothered about the circulating gossips that might ruin a bit her reputation as a successful African American singer. Therefore, a spokesman of the young diva even refused to comment on these suppositions.
