    @Dior .. IKB gel will make ur face peel and flakey... it will take a week or so till the new lighter skin comes through
    ive noticed some flaking also , and i dont use no aha so i know its the gel. i wonder whats the ingredient that makes the skin peel ????? this could be the reason when i used the gel too long i get dark patches above my cheekbones cause AHA do that to me

    I have been following the thread.. just haven't posted. My skincare goal for the 90 days is to be even. I don’t care for a particular shade as long as it’s even and smooth. I have spent the first month exfoliating. Since products will now penetrate better, I will be incorporated a few lightening products to help the darker areas. My skin colour ranges from nc42 to nc45. An even nc42 would be nice - just need to tackle my back, booty, knees, elbows and face (minor scars).

    Nothing is set on stone but this is the guide - I always switch it up by skipping or adding products. It all depends on how my skin is doing.

    You need lightening products that will not exfoliate you in anyway, KA, RA and ACID will exfoliate you so don't increase any of those and if you are using anything with vitamin c it will make you more golden than pale. Product with haluronic acid and B3 will calm your sensitive face then try good serum, gel, cream or oil and layer them after one another.
    Beauties are fair and slim.

    Yes!! thank you , i use hyaluronic acid ! but i didnt know for B3 - i grabbed a bottle of The ordinary alpha arbutin serum , i used it today , i will use that from now on , especially on the sides of my face , like above the cheekbones , which darkens easily for me ...looking like ochronosis at times...but since it ligtens with hydroquinone , kligmans formula or kojic acid , i know its not ochronosis , cause it cant be lightened its permanent. i think its the constant flaking from ikb gel ...idk why that gel makes me flake ...
    and in the ordinary serum theres hyaluronic acid ! so thats great

Also ikb broke me out. I'm leaning towards hq and ra cos of ra's helping with the texture of the skin. I just started taking MSm, vitamin c, ala, nac, vitamin a and zinc
    @Dsk I've been maintaining my skintone for years. Everyone I know that used HQ on their face had side effects and redarkened. Since you don't have many shades to lighten I recommend you don't use HQ. You can still get yellow tone by balancing vitamin C with Kojic or Alpha Arbutin lighteners. Vitamin C will get you yellow. Muse has maintained his skintone on his face for 2 years without HQ. I'm just saying I've learned something over the years and HQ is just not good for the face.

    @TRIUMPH if I am already using a ka serum on my face does that mean I won’t need to use any exfoliating products because of serum alredy exfoliating

    You need exfoliant especially for your face. Every acid work in a different way, KA exfoliate at high % that is why kojie San and Marie france professional strength kojic soap used for a long time make your skin thin. It should be used more to lighten skin especially in a serum.
    RA exfoliate by making the upper layer thin but the lower layer is thicker SA go deeper into the skin to remove impurities LA add moisture to your skin while GA which is smaller than LA go deeper in to the skin to exfoliate it and reduce pore size.
    Don't depend on KA to exfoliate your face.
    Beauties are fair and slim.
