@John-Dave yes simple finally,, it took a lot to get here lol.. Are you layering G&G these days or mixing your G&G with something else?
@DOODOOBROWN... depending... how I feel that day.. I have the cream and oil... either G&G solo... g&g cream mixed with the oil in my hands... or layer the oil over cream.... its my go to cream for when I wanna lighten 2 to 3 shades... other than than I maintain with KA soaps or regular exfoliating soaps.. along with LA lotion and 3000 mg of vitamin c.... but I am on 7 month journey with the cream to see how far it takes me since its fall/winter season now... I am nw 40 trying to get to nw 35... What shade are you maintaining at? NC 42 still?

I'm glad so glad I came over this thread.
I purchased my LA90℅ and mixed it into my Citaphil to make my lotion. I have been having salt baths and just yesterday I have started to peel. Before that I have been exfoliating every week with glyco peels.

@sexysisi

Finish the exfoliation process first, it's important to remove all the dead skin thats been there for years, I would do the 6 weeks of exfoliation for best results. Then you will be ready to use lighteners. You can use Likas throughout the exfoliation process, since its a fruit acid

what you're using to exfoliate your skin is also important, get a micro cloth for your face, and a korean italy towel for your body. You can find these at the dollar store or order on ebay.

You can use Korean italy towel while you soak in dead sea salt as well. You can switch up and use your LA ( I dont know what if you're using LA lotion DIY or spraying it on) 2 or 3 days a week.

soak in sea salt 2 times a week sunday and tuesday (for example) then rinse off your body and wash off with the likas soap.

2. On the day i wont be using the LA lotion, can I use my gluthahione serum + Vit C?
3. From your explanations , Im not suppose to use LA lotion the same day i use dead sea salt. im i correct?
Thank you

@sexysisi,, slow down a bit

okay from your previous questions, I had the impression that you haven't exfoliated fully yet... thats first before incorporating all these lighteners you're using,, In the other thread you said you're getting dark ??? What have you done so far, I need to know before any advice...

@sexysisi

you can use likes for your face, if it doesn't irritate you, test it out and don't leave it on for more than 3 mins.. I can't really answer much w/o knowing what you've been doing.. in the newbie thread you say you're turning dark... @sexysisi .. whats your regimen now?

did you exfoliate first? & how long?

You're welcome dear... what complexion are you starting with? and what complexion do you want to be??
your exfoliation regimen is mild, its going to take a while longer if you are exfoliating with just kojic acid soap and f&w lotion.

It seems you're not exfoliating completely. Therefore you will not be even. You need something to scrub off dead skin , order a korean italy towel from ebay
