    What helps me is a seasalt scrub with honey and lemon lime. Let it 2-3. Mins on ur lip and it will lighten ur lip gradually. Use a moisturizing spf lip balm on ur lips.

    Hi" Would you still recommend ht26? Do you think it can lighten 3 shades? What do you think of the new version? Are you still using the hands and feet

    There several suggestions by different people ... Bottomline - you'd need an exfoliator, a lightener and a moisturiser : plus loootsa patience and committment.

    For exfoliation - scrubbing with a toothbrush + exfo soap like kojie sans (whenever you take a shower or brush your teeth) is a start. Also using RA and an aha lotion.

    For lightening - a niacinamide toner/cream is best bcos its safe n non-irritating for lips, genitalia etc... Some have said Hypprogel cream works for them.

    For moisturising - get a lip balm with spf in it. @PrincessIvanka83
