    Lightening in the UK

    heyyy been a while ! so im currently at NC 43 on my face and NC 44 on my body and hands ! i have both shades in mac studio tech.

    took me 3 years , of using arbutin , kojic acid , and exfoliation on my body !
    and on my face i used arbutin and Hq / Retin a ! LET ME TELL U , HQ/RETIN A is the BOMB , i got way less irritation and dark spots , than when i was using those " natural " products ! HQ and retin a is so simple and effective !

    Also skin building is very effective , i keep it simple and use shea butter .


    ive used about all the creams mentioned here , a part from Hq creams like skinlight / carowhite etc -
    what i can say is that exfoliate BUT DONT OVER DO IT . i got SOOOO much Pih because of that !

    once i started exfoliating once or twice a week , i started getting lighter , so i came to the conclusion that i was burning my skin when i was exfoliating too much , which made me thought i wasn't lightening .

    ALSO GIVE YOUR SKIN TIME TO LIGHTEN . This cycle of cell production and replacement takes about 28 days.

    However my BUTT is still a little darker , any advices ? I TIRED LOL.

    BUT MOST OF ALL, im moving to the UK ! so i would like to know what products will i be able to buy over there ? all Uk members please answer !

    Kojic acid soaps you can buy in some stores or online from ebay (they come like next day delivery and its free), serums and mitchell gels like IKB, Lemonvate and Precious you'll find in BSS stores also they're quite easy to find and not too expensive

    The weather has just changed so you're lucky we just had one of the hottest summers on record haha
