I'm a newbie! I'm trying to go from Gabrielle Union to maybe Christina Milian after a long day on the beach lol . I'm not interested in getting too pale, I just want to bring out more yellows and reds and less browns and blacks in my skin. I've read some pretty scary stuff about hydroquinone and so I'm really reluctant to use it. I wanted some more natural options. Has anyone achieved good results without hydroquinone? I cant tell that naturally my skin can get light. My feet and legs are already at my goal, but I was both bless and cursed with easy tanning genes. So anything that is exposed to the sun will instantly tan. I would love to walk around in a Jilbab and mask, but thats not really possible with school and work everyday. I've used sunblock at times, but it usually turns my skin an ashy color and gives me acne, besides, I still tan, it drives me nuts! Is there a way i can slow my tanning and lighten what is already tanned?! Thanks!
