    Obagi is out of the questions unfortunately :-(
    Awwh ok, I'm sorry, Obagi worked extremely well for me. Aren't any others I could recommend, especially one that wasn't HQ.

    so 2 months or so ago I made a thread looking for some help on here but the site moves a little slow, thanks to those who contributed! I ended up doing my own research and I decided that

    Alpha Arbutin
    Kojic Acid
    Vitamin C
    African Black soap
    Kojie San Soap
    Coconut Oil
    Shea Butter

    are the route I’m taking. I really need advice on how to mix, how to measure and where to buy authentic products.

    I was going to add these (AA/KA) to a vitamin C Nivea lotion and boost it with my Vit C But read that mixing AA/KA isn’t a good idea at all?

    Also so I read that Alpha Arbutin turns to HQ when it gets to the skin? this is confusing to me?
    I really wanna drop HQ & do things the natural way

    Last thing, I want to be a light caramel with yellow undertones. I’m really yellow now with caramel skin and I’d like to go one more shade lighter but I don’t want that pale ashy look, how can I maintain my yellowness?”

    Niacinamide & carrot Oil

    I made a thread with this and no answer so I’ll leave it here ????

    @gymrat ? Can you please help if you can?

    Or anyone please? ????

    But, real quick, use Vit C serum in the AM and on its own, don't mix it with anything. If you want to use KA soap or African black soap prior too Vit C you can. I would not use Coconut oil or shea butter on my face, fine on your body but not the face. Find a lighter oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and be sure they are 100% pure, not mixed with anything else, just pure.

    You can mix KA in a base lotion only thing is it has to be a water base lotion, and you will want to make small batches as it does oxidize quick. So make small batches an use quickly. Store in a dark cool cabinet and no more then 3-4 days.

    Thank you so much! It’s probably on another thread but I’ve searched and there were Zero responses. I understand, thanks. Use KA soap & AB soap prior to Vit C? Can I not use them together or? Okay thank you, I’ll switch to lighter Oil for my face. Okay great, I read that KA oxidize. What percentage is safe I was thinking 6% KA & 6% Alpha Arbutin? Also how do I mix them? What do you mean “3-4 days”, is that how often I should mix it or how often I should use it on my skin?So so sorry I’m new to the whole DIY thing

    Oh and I read that KA & AA makes you pale/pale whitish. And HQ makes you yellow, which I believe cause I’m yellow

    Thanks @gymrat last question, I promise lol.

    Can you recommend a professional peels as appose to a DIY peel that can restore original skin complexion for black facial skin.

    My face is my only issue, years or abuse has caused it to be resistance against creams. I feel I need a deep peel or even lazer treatment which can restore my complextion?

    My body is NC45 and my face is like NW47 urghh!!
