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 !
