    Mequinol and lighting journey

    Hi Everyone , I want to lighten about 3 shades. Iam currently a nc 45 on body and about nc 40 on face my goal is nc 30 all around . So a little history about me . I wanted to ligthen about 2 years ago but I kept doing it for few days then I would stop for months. So now I decided really start my new journey . So here is my my start . I doing mequinol , caro light cream. Oil and 2 dermovate . Thw mequinol did give me white spots on my arms , but what i am understanding is that the white spots the pores around the hair . So it's should all connect . I am nc 42 so you don't really see it . Well I will keep you all posted

    Thank you for starting this thread about your mequinol progress. I also want to lighten my skin 2-3 shades, to become fair. I have tried everything but nothing have worked, i am light brown with yellow undertone and my goal is to be fair as Mariah Carrey or Tiny Harris. I am also thinking of mixing 10 % MQ into my HQ regime (Palmers fade cream and Skin Light) so it can speed up the lightening process. I think those white spots you have on your arm will even out when you keep using MQ or your regime. How do you use your MQ and HQ when you apply it on your skin? Do you apply it separately?

    I am not sure what a good mequinol out there is . But I am using mine from ifoffer which is mixed with other acids. I would loceto find a mewuinol creal that is alone. That being said this mix did lighten my face about 2 shades. It mosly took away to summer tan I had . On my face I don't have spots but lots of peeling so I can't use ioffer mequinol mix more then 2 days in a row I get really red around the nose and chin area. So I let that's heal put face oil. When I don't put the Mewuimol I put caro light on my face so I have something while I am waiting for my skin to heal . Then comes my neck, my neck is peeling too , but the way it's peeling is diffrent from my face its . The peel is like dirt chomping of . I can scrub with my fingers and it peels off. Mequinol makes you dark before oh makes you light . Now I am using this all over my body and I got those spots on my hand . That freaked me out and I was going to stop . But I red sct member that the spots are around where you have hair because of the pores . That is true the spots around each hair . So I used Nair and got rid of all the hair lol. What I do now is out mequinol wait for few min then out my carolight mix . Let me know if you guys have any other suggestions and how can I get a member go join us here . Lunnah did mequinol and got great results .

    Did you buy your mequinol from mzcarolina? I know that mzcarolina sells mequinol lotion on ifoffer. You can also get mequinol crystal powder from ioffer. I have tried the mequinol crystal power mixed with glycerin but it didnt work. So i am going to try out the 10 % MQ lotion today from glow skin. I am going to use it with my HQ regime to speed up the lightening process. I will pray that the MQ and HQ will lighten my skin evenly especially the face, but the body i can just hide it with good clothing if it doesnt lighten evenly. I hope that the pelling will not be bad. I know that Lunnah used both MQ and HQ to lighten her skin, i think she used 20 % MQ and 5 % HQ in her regime and it worked well for her. But we need to understand that she was already very light skinned to begin with. Her natural skin color was olive and her goal was to be pale. Most of us here on sct have very dark skin everything from pitch black color to caramel brown skin. We cant compare our results with her. It took about 9 months for Lunnah to get a lighter even skintone with MQ and she reached her goal color.

    @mikethebest , yes I am using it from mz Carolina , have you used her stuff before ? Use good soap too it will help . Yes you right lunah was already light . I am not sure if mequinol work for yellow time skin . But you need to use retnol with mequinol otherwise you won't lighten evenly . Mz Carolina mequinol says it has retnol and other acids. That means it makes you peel way to much more because of the acids which is not good makesur skin way to sensitive .

    No, i have not used mzcarolina mequinol lotion. I am currently using the 10 % mequionl lotion from glow skin with my HQ regime. The mequinol lotion from glow skin already have retinoil and 5 % Kojic Acid in it. I am using Kojic San soap for exfoliation. I just hope this will work for me, i just want to get rid of my brown skin complextion. How long did it took for you to lighten 2 shades on your face with your MQ and HQ regime? How are you going to even out your lighter face with the body?
