    Please help me with my hands!

    Hey guys, I wanted to sign up for Skincaretalks to see if I can get some help with my hands.

    Back in my high school days (2015) I messed with Dr. Scholl’s and Mosco liquid corn removal. I did this because I was trying to get rid of a corn on my pinky toes. I accidentally got the liquid all over my toes. After a while I noticed peeling and I pulled the dead peeling skin off ( I know I shouldn’t have) but my toes looks lighter. I then attempted to use the liquid corn remover on my hands (again I know it was so dumb but I wasn’t thinking). My hands peeled after a couple days and they looks lighter and I was pulling the dead skin off so no one asked why my hands were peeling.

    The liquid corn remover also got messy and ran down from my pointer finger to my thumb, making the gap from my pointer finger and thumb super dark. My hands looked good for a while until they started getting darker. I kept using the liquid corn remover thinking the more I used it, it would fix its side of effect. My hands were destroyed and so much more darker and intense. All of this happened when I was 17 into 18, and I carried having ugly hands since then (I’m now 22). I’m embarrassed showing my hands or getting food, a drink, or simply doing anything that requires my hands being visible.

    My regime I started back in March 2019 to try and ease how dark it was. I went to an esthetician and I bought a lightening cream (it had 2%Hq) and another cream (forgot the name) to try and combat the darkness. It didn’t work too well to be honest. I stopped going back to her because I didn’t want to keep spending $170 for two creams that didn’t work.

    In June of 2019 I decided to try and lighten my hands naturally. I bought lemon, baking soda, and had Apple Cider Vinegar. I would use sugar and lemon scrub on my hands, it slowly eased the wrinkles. I would also used lemon and baking soda ( or ACV and baking soda) and rub it on my hands. It helps slightly but my hands are still dark and I’m still embarrassed having them out.

    My feet are still kind of dark, but I’m hoping to tackle my hands first than my feet ( since I don’t always have my feet out).

    I wanted to see if anyone could help me out, I’ve seen other dark hand journeys but no one seemed to be clear on the % of peels used (whether TCA or Jessner) and they weren’t clear where they purchased the products from. I wanted to see if anyone is willing to help me 😞 I’m tired of how ugly, discolored, and wrinkly my hands are.

    P.S: I hope I can receive some good and helpful feedback and not any judgy comments. I understand what I’ve done and how I’ve ruined my hands. I’ve stayed away from any chemicals since and have been naturally trying to fix my hands.


    Also please ignore my left thumb nail, I slammed it in a car door two months ago so the nail is still growing back.


    Thanks everyone!

    No judgy comments here, but I'd definitely make sure to put sunscreen on my hands and use gloves when driving to compliment any regime if I was you. And occlude at night, you def' need an extreme regime

    Kindly use cold pressed coconut oil morning and night ,that shouldn't stop you from using your daily cream

    I had the same problem all my life, I was so insecure I would cut my knuckles with a nail cutter sometimes, my mom used to say that I didn’t know how to bath that’s why my sling is so thick. I scrubbed myself but it never helped, at 14 I even tried grease used for lubricating machines. And ALL OF THAT MOISTURIZING SHIT DOES NOT WORK! For me it was the reaction to nickel in water. just check if you have other allergies and try to avoid foods that increase your histamine levels. Maybe if you look closely you will see tiny circles of peeled skin especially on the sides of your finger.
    I find out that I have dyshidrotic eczema on hands and feet. I can’t believe I even spent my money on shit like La mer thinking that I will get better. I would advise that you stop peeling your skin because it will become even worse.
    I use bertasol it’s a steroid I know very well but the trick is adding 2,5 mls of it to 500grams of my designated hand cream. You will need it for life that’s for sure, so don’t try to rush it on, or put too much it will mess you up.

    this is some extreme damage. If you’ve gone a couple years without putting any harmful or lightening products on your hands I recommend doing a 90% la peel only on the dark areas if you’re not comfortable with a peel and you want a much safer gradual route use a lactic acidosis lotion like amlatin for 4-5 months making sure you’re using sunscreen in the day time and cera ve moisturizing cream in the morning amlatin at night only. If you choose to do the peel keep your skin VERY moisturized after the peel also be very gentle with your hands until they heal(use gloves when washing dishes or when exposed to sunlight) a week after the peel use G&g lotion wait 2mins then apply G&g oil immediately after applying the oil occlude by wearing gloves to sleep every night. Avoid the sun touching your hands 100% wear gloves put them in your pockets whatever it takes even if you look crazy I recommend leather gloves they’ll let in less light and are more fashionable

    Thank you so much, I’ll try out a 90% peel then I’ll purchase Amlatin to use for the next 4-5 months. For the G&G,I purchased mine from HouseofBeautyWorld and it’s the container with the red lid. Will it work or do I need to purchase a new G&G lotion. If I do need to purchase a new G&G what website do I need to purchase it from. Also where can I buy the G&G oil?
