Hi Daiyumi. Are you sure that your spots arnt actually the disease called vitiligo? it is that skin condition that causes white areas on people with dark skin. Have you seen a doctor about it?

i'm not sure. my mom is all like i want to be white. shes totally retarded. i am part white. anyways. i went to my doctor and they say its nothing to worry about. i'm all like okay what the hell? she doesn't even really listen to what i have to say. (my doctor) the spots are probably 3 or 4 shades lighter than my skin. i'm not that dark so...

i think mequinol does completely depigment, because it's used instead of mono to depig vitilgo sufferers.

no, lol I'm not completely dipigmented yet, I don't want to be completely dipigmented. But I can certainly see how this can eventually make someone depigmented. But the good thing is it lightens shade by shade, I'll stop once I get to an ideal shade. I think I'll get there honestly in a few months. I like Drake's skin tone. but with both mono and mequinol once you get to a certain color, doesn't mean you'll stay there. People who have completely depigmented with both had some pigment come back. But I think that can be avoided with a little maintance. I'm pretty sure this is what I read.

Well I don't know how to describe skin tones accurately. I would say before it was like a light brown skin tone. Now it's just much, much more light brown maybe? Some areas it's much lighter. However my arm is still brown.

Well mequinol it self is powder, but most people use it mixed in with creams. Then one I sell is the actual powder, but you can buy it in cream form from goldpharma.

Titi, it gradually lightens with white spots? Thats strange, Mega and a bunch of other people didnt report that side effect
Can you elaborate? Girl, you use 40%, do you have white spots?

So mequinol 2% is semi-permanent or should a higher percentage like 5% be used for semi-permanency?


Girl, what percentage do you use on your skin?
