BBNaija star Uriel has opened up about being denied a recent botox appointment in the UK due to her skin being “too tight.” Sharing her experience on her Instagram story on June 10, 2024, the reality TV star revealed that the medical professional was surprised at her age because of her skin’s tightness. “I have been rejected from doing botox in the UK. I also wanted to do a thread lift, but the lady said my skin is way too tight already. She was shocked to learn my age.”

Uriel went on to discourage the public from using bleaching creams, highlighting their adverse effects. She added, “I’m not knocking anyone, but right now if you are using organic or bleaching cream you are stripping away important skin layers which are useful for fighting skin diseases and ageing. When you use these creams, ask yourself why you get spots or dark patches. You will be surprised how healthy drinking water and taking vitamins will transform you from the inside out.”

Similarly, in November 2023, BBNaija star Doyin also spoke about skin bleaching, specifically about her own experience trying to lighten her skin. She emphasized her gratitude that the cream she used did not work. “Hey guys, I just remembered that there was a time that I wanted to bleach my skin, like I wanted to be light-skinned so bad. Now I’m so grateful to God that that cream did not work because I would have regretted it. I need to shout out to the girl who sold me that fake cream. I mean, at the time I was angry but now I’m not. Thanks, girl.”

Social media was recently abuzz after Wizkid referred to Don Jazzy as an influencer while replying to an alleged diss comment from Mavin Records signee Ladipoe.
