    I still struggle with my damned knuckles. Hopefully longterm glutathione and bit c will fix it. Cause nothing topical works for me

    Dark hand rivers/palms ! This can be corrected with a peel, and maintained with G&g

    @light nme: name of peel and percentage you used. Do you have pictures of it? Website? What about tanned arms? What can I use for 1-2 shades?

    Would you guys say there is a limit to how many shades you can bleach before you start looking like a pale skinned/raw grey undertone, skin bleacher?

    To not look like this:







    But instead to look more natural like this:

    Does anyone know a person who bleaches their skin and has a natural healthy glow (in person - no filter) and not the "dead and grey look" ?

    They say the grey look is from the steroids, spice was just make up

    How do you guys avoid looking like the below:

    I don't think the ashy look just comes from steroids though.

    Spice is wearing make up but that look is spot on for bleachers. Perhaps it's her darker skin peaking through - the way the tone of the lower layer of the skin may peak through on bleached skin.

    I really despise that ashy look, which is the main reason I created this thread? Perhaps others don't mind as much as long as they are lighter?

I know fake tanners, can help bring back some color, but I wonder how some people avoid looking bleached out while, other people don't.
    My first time around reaching my goal I never had the gray problem or the looking dark in certain lighting and I think it’s because I lightened very gradually. I had used caro white for 2-3 years then skin light, caro white gave me a orange undertone and skin light gave me a yellow one. I’d also use maxi and rdl baby face peels which would give me this yummy complexion. I remember my SD and my mixed raced boyfriend both said they loved my complexion so did strangers. But the second time around after I redarkened I lightened too fast in a matter of 6 months I went from NC50 to NC25 and I had that gray dark in different lighting problem. I also drank smoked and did some drugs during this tome where previously I took my vitamins worked out everyday and kept my skin hydrated so lifestyle might have been a contributing factor
