    I've been on HQ for about five months alongside taking Gluta (about 40,000-60,000mg daily) and I've still.been lightening. Maybe because the dosage is high but personally I haven't had any issues.

    I haven't had any difference in hunger since taking it, and I haven't heard of that before. Have you started taking anything else alongside the Gluta?

    Mono is a very risky substance and only used for people suffering with vitiligo to even out the skin. If the skin has no pigment it's more susceptible to sun cancers (the pigments in the skin protect...

    I've never used ikb so can't recommend. A skin cycle is how long it takes for new skin cells to form around your body. Usually it takes 3-6 weeks depending on your age. Your PIH right now is on your...

    I suffer from PIH, you need to allow the skin to heal for 1-2 skin cycles after which it'll go back to normal. Wash your face gently and use a very gentle lightner like Alpha Arbutin. I'm also using...

    The gluta route is probably one of the slowest and most expensive but also imo the safest and the one which provides long lasting results. I've lightened half a shade all over since starting in late...

    I also use DHC haha. It's just really good and dissolves all makeup, dirt etc. I get the 200ml bottle and it lasts 2-3 months which is good value for money.

    I have friends who use this, it's really good! Don't bother about it having collagen in it because the molecules are too big to penetrate the skin, but it's wonderful otherwise for soft skin.

    I would stick with the wash cloth; it's much gentler on the face and you end up looking less red.

    My mum uses the Privilege range from QEI+. It doesn't lighten her but does give a nice glow. The range is expensive and I wouldn't waste money on it to be honest.

    I don't have too much advice, but don't mix retinol and vitamin c together. They react badly when used together. Use the retinol at night (since it makes the skin more photosensitive) and vitamin c...
