Ok ... I have lately discovered that there is this supplement called PYCNOGENOL that is a VERY GOOD ANTIOXIDANT, which can also help lighten the skin by the inhibition of TYROSINASE...

Has anyone used pycnogenol successfully by itself to lighten their skin ? Or do you think that if I used it for a while , my skin could lighten 2 or 3 shades over time ? I've been using it for a month and I can see that my skin has brightened a bit ... I have a very dark complexion , so it might take longer but I wanna make sure it's worth the wait ... ALL answers would be appreciated. I'm more interested in lightening internally.

Yes, It lightened me very well and I stopped for two weeks because I was getting whiter when I wasn't even using any lighteners especially on my face. I've started using again 3 days ago.

Toffee I saw your before/after pics in an old post and all I could say was WOW! Not sure if that was you or an example but if it was you, your results are the best I have ever seen! Your skin looked so natural in the after pic. You looked like a completely different person. So natural and even just flawless

I just ordered these Swanson.

I read that it is more potent and effective than some of the more expensive brands. Sometimes the pricing has nothing to do with the quality
