    hi have you taken a look at our diy threads? In terms of making the KA 6% that is way too strong and it will irritate your skin especially if this will be your first time.. depending on the kind and where u purchase the usage rate will be around 2% max 4%

    Hi Saucey, what % of RA are you using?? And how often?
    And you want to incorporate something else with RA or change it up all together??
    @gymrat I’m using 1% twice per week I love my ra lol is that enough to exfoliate my face or would you recommend I incorporate a mild peel as well?

    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!!
    @brown2light no worries, I don't mind the questions Brown2light, I would highly recommend MUAC, I am going to link them below for you, read through the peels, this is totally something you can apply and do at home. Don't order the full size, order the sample size, its PLENTY for you to get several peels out of. And, when in doubt about choosing send them an email, they have awesome customer service!! Also, if you order a peel be sure to use their promo code for 20% off.

    Read through all the peels, but one to consider is Fade Peel. TCA isn't for you, but plenty of other ones are, so please check them out! https://www.makeupartistschoice.com/...chemical-peels


    If you have it done professionally, the Derm office you choose would know which peel to apply for you. You have lots of Derms where you are, google some near by, read their reviews!! Make sure they have experience with your skin tone/complexion, if you are unsure, I will help you find one. PM me a few and I will check them out for you.

    @saucey , if you can bump it up to 3 times a week. So....., Mon, Wed, Fri apply RA. Its plenty to exfoliate. After you have used it 4-6 weeks 3 times a week. Stop using it for a week, and apply a peel. The thing with using RA and a peel is you will have better peel results (because you are well exfoliated. I use RA right up to applying my peels, but I don't recommend it the first time around. To be save, better to stop RA for 5-7 days prior to the peel.

    But once you get to that stage and you want to apply a peel, PM me. I will walk you through it

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
    @SkinQueen11

    Yes, pick one of your soaps, use it in the AM then apply Vit C on cleansed skin.
    Yes, get a lighter oil, and only use 1-2 drops, a little goes a long ways, and will go even further if you apply it on damp skin!
    Where did you get your KA from?? And what I mean is don't make a batch that can't be used up in 3-4 days, make small batches.

    No need to be sorry, we all have to start somewhere it can be confusing but once you do it a few times will become habit!

    Thank you so much @gymrat , I feel so silly yesterday I noticed there’s a DIY Forum. It doesn’t have all the info I’m looking for but it gave me some good insights!

    So to remove dark circles & under eyes - Vitamin C serum that I will use separately from AA & KA correct?
    Face Lighter oils

    I also figured 6% is too much cause max is 4%
    so I’ll do
    KA - 4/5% (Oxidizes so use within 3-4 days)
    AA - 3-4%
    Niacinamide - 4-6%
    Layer my Coconut oil & Shea Butter instead of mixing in my DIY


    Can I get Carrot oil? Will it help with making me Yellow?
    Also the steps of mixing are off to me.

    I totally get now, I’ll be purchasing from MakingCosmetics or LotionCrafters.

    yes, I just went through the DIY forum & I saw maximum is like 4%
    i think I’ll do 3-4% I guess

    I’m gonna be mixing it with 100ml-120ml since I read it oxidize
