    Apply the KA serum first then layer the caro white over it. Use the RA in your PM routine every other night. Just be sure your avoiding the sun as much as possible. And as always, your very welcome, glad I ran into your post here don't be a stranger!!

    I was using 15% lactic acid lotion. I think the strength was ok. It didn't sting (well, it did sting when applied to my stomach and chest sometimes, but ironically that 's not where I got the PIH). I got the PIH on my ankles and upper thighs. I think my skin just didn't agree with it. And I didn't enjoy the process either. Seeing more results with dry brushing which is odd, but I guess whatever works.

    If I layered the KA serum I would need quite a bit right? (Since I'm going to be using caro white on my entire body). I would probably need like 3 bottles of KA serum each week. Is it not as effective to add it to my caro white?

    Also, do you know if paks sell the legit KA Maxi White? I just realized that they have it, but I don't remember if people here have had issues with paks selling fakes or not.

    Thank you soo much again @gymrat .

    To me it looks the skin is darkening because its getting ready to peel. Doesn't mean you will peel in sheets, but you will shed a bit. I would get a wash cloth, get in the shower, once your clean and your skin is damp, lather an oil on your legs etc and use the cloth in circular motions and try to lift that dead skin a bit. After your out of the shower, moisturize again. Do this every day for the next week and see if the color doesn't improve. Stay completely out of the sun @ebony844

    Hey, you've gotta do what works for you, and honestly if dry brushing is helping I would definitely stick with it 2-3 bottles of serum should be enough. A little goes a long ways. Applying it on damp skin will help it penetrate easier and last you even longer. I've never had any issues with Paks, I think your safe using them.

    And of course, your very welcome!! Keep me updated how things are going for you. Especially with that dry brushing......cuz your tempting me to dig mine out @Ritzy

    You can mix up to 12% in a cream. So I would take 136 ml of cream and mix in 11.83 ml of MSM. That will give you 5 ounces of cream with 8% MSM. @binastie Just be sure your using a basic water based cream, as MSM is water soluble. See how that works for you.

    Hi guys, nobody ever seems to answer my questions. If you can please help.

    I've been using Carowhite mixed with lemonvate vitamin C serum and some tube cream containing RA/GA and KA (two of those). Also I was taking a combination of 2000mgVit C, MSM and L-glutamine plus grapeseed. Three months. Together with proper exfoliation at least twice weekly. Difference has only been slight.
    Recently I started using LA peel again at 50% I left it on overnight and I only peeled like a quarter of my arms.

    Can someone please help me out with what I might be doing wrong? I've tried all sorts of things in the past, Makari, Carotone, LA lotion and peel, Bio Claire.

    Also my legs now have those tiny white spots Bio claire gives.

    I was NW43 when I started not sure what I am now. Pic shows where the LA peeled and stopped

    Apply another peel, but its not necessary to leave it on over night. If your skin doesn't show signs of irritation you can do a LA peel once a week.

    Yes, it will darken before it peels. Think of when you get a sunburn and peel, same thing happens when you apply a chemical peel. The skin will change by the day after doing a peel, depending on the strength and the acid used. It will go from red/pink, then the skin gets tight/shiny, then starts to darken and looks dull/dry, then begins to peel.......its a process, but worth it in the end!
