Jamaica’s Health and Wellness Minister, Dr. Christopher Tufton, has called on Jamaicans to desist from using bleaching creams – as anti-aging formulas.
According to Caribbean News Service, Tufton made the call, as he launched Caribbean Wellness Day 2019 – that will be observed across the 15-member Caribbean Community (CARICOM) tomorrow.
Tufton said people who are aging, should focus on eating healthy and exercising, rather than using quick formulas to look younger, as the creams oftentimes have long-term side-effects that impact the health of the users.
Jamaica’s Ministry of Health and Wellness, along with its stakeholders, will be hosting numerous activities, in recognition of Caribbean Wellness Day 2019. Some of these activities include health expos and health fairs.
