From the little research I’ve done about steroids is that they’re used be used for 2-4 weeks and then stopped, another thing is (I don’t know how true this is) but I’ve read an heard it’s best to use an AHA when using steroid lotions, gels and ointments so when you stop using the steroid you won’t darkening fast and better to maintain
@BlackSamson I plan to be using my ga lotion 3 times a week at night

@2lightforyou I only know about lemonvate steroid because it’s only one I’ve used but there loads of different steroid tubes. Neprosone gel forte, caro white fast action gel look through the forms

So update: ive been using my civic cream mixed with retinoids and palmers stretch mark cream mix for about two weeks. If anything I feel more dull. I exfóliate with my kojic acid in the shower and use clinic clear oil and Amlactin during the day. I cover up, put on sunblock the whole thing. Should I switch to another steroid?? Or just add another steroid to my mix? I see absolutely no results at all.

As far as I know you have to mix your roids with skin building products to do it safely.

Ok, I just bought movate lemon, but I don't think it's the roid version. It says 2% hydroquinone and I'm confused lol. Please help! The packaging has a m on the left side, but the actual tube has an e on the left side.

@DelRehBaby I always thought the labi tube had betamethasone not clobetasol.
@Vizzle Movate definitely has steroids. A lot of these sketchy tubes don't list all the ingredients.
