I don’t use Cocoa butter, the statement was not from me; leave my skin alone! – Yvonne Nelson

By on

IMG-20140111-WA001Yvonne Nelson’s chameleon skin has become the centre of criticism since last year. Ever since she decided to compete Nadia Buari in complexion, the media and fans have not been quiet on her.

She was quoted to have issued a press statement last week saying the persistent use of Queen Elizabeth Cocoa butter has enhanced her complexion. The Actress says she never issued such statement and she is not sure where the said statement came from. www.233times.com curled the following words unedited from an interview the alumnus of Aggrey Memorial Secondary School granted news-one:

“I’m shocked people actually believe such a strange story about me. the writer quoted a press statement they claim I have issued to explain that I had a deal to become ‘face of Queen Elizabeth Cocoa Buter’ and as part of the contract, I was given a lifetime supply of the body cream and that for 3 years I have used this cocoa butter to enhance my natural complexion rather than bleach it. this is not true. It is a lie. I have never issued such statement and I don’t use cocoa butter. People should leave my skin alone.

I have always explained that as an Actress I take different pictures under different shades of light and with different shades of make up depending on what the picture would be used for. It is therefore not strange to find different pictures of me looking different. It does not mean I am bleaching and one does not need to be an industry player to know this.

Even in movies, depending on who the director is, there are different lighting angles and brightness levels that can be used to make a character look different and this is no secret. Even a change of weather can have an effort on ones skun. I fully understand the dangers of skin bleaching and would not engage in any such venture. I am a lady and I appreciate my God-given looks.”
