    Ooops i did ít again



    So ive stalked sct for some time now and have been lightening on and off for a few years.. Ive had great brightening results with various soaps but have failed with retin a,probs because i get a bit too over excited, scrub and cause more problems for myself... And u guessed thats exactly whats happened now! When the peelies came i ended up using my exfoliating towel with very hot water and now mr arms have got darker I have read the forum and understand about exfoliating and peels etc.. But could really do with some advice on the best way forward.. Have been moisturising with evo and jergens for a week now.. I am thinking a jergens with la mix and dudu osun[ATTACHMENT=1329][ATTACHMENT=1330][ATTACHMENT=1331]image.jpg (1,742k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT][/ATTACHMENT][/ATTACHMENT]/asantee three times aweek.. Will post some pics later.. Please help i have got dark patches and one arm darker then the other The first pictures are in varied lights, natural and outside and the last is in comparison to my leg in natural light

    Ok so im thinking its gotta be lactic acid or glycolic.. Or maybe both, alternated? The darker spots look ashy if i do not moisturise, maybe they will?

    Billyb2 seems like once you have allowed that arm to heal you would just start all over with the gentle exfoliation process. La lotion is great and vinegar has worked quite well in my lightening regimen at providing a gently exfoliated canvas. Mix apple cider vinegar with glycerin and water and spray your arm and then wait ten minutes or so before showering. Lots of dead skin will roll off and it will retain moisture. One of the most important things is not to get too aggressive. Its your skin forever. Don't abuse it just gently care for it and you will get results.

    Blueblood, many thanks for your reply.. Wow results with vinegar thats fab! I will defo try this I will be buying some likas and alternating with dudu osun, will make a diy la lotion with 88%la, as people appear to have good results with this.. Does there have to be precise amounts of the glycerin, vinegar and water?

    sure go ahead and try it with regular vinegar I usually do a one part vinegar to 2 parts glycerin and then fill the rest with water. You can play with the vinegar ratio to make it stronger if necessary. I've even used half green tea and half vinegar which works well also.
