Kojic acid showers, vitamin c, and gluta. pills sounds like a good regime. For topicals, try Amlactin 12% or 15% lotion daily and use retin-a gel twice a week. If your skin responds anything like mine, you could hit your goal in about 2 months.Thankk you sis. I've been thinking of trying out some kojic acid, vitamin c, and glutathione pills. I'm a dark brown shade and i''ve been trying to go to like a brown skin shade so that I still look natural and not washed out. i'm happy that its close to my goals.
