Really need help, used caro white and my face is alot lighter than my whole body. I usually where pants and longsleeves but my hands are like 7 shades darker than my face, looks like they belong to a different person. I've used Kojic acid soap, FW products (for over 6months), Carowhite products, LA peels, Hydrogen peroxide but nothing seems to work. My fingers have lightened a little but my knuckles and back of my palm are still really dark. I dont mind having hands that are darker than my face but I wont it to look as if Im still the same person lol (face is orangish yellow ish brown while my hands are pitch black). Any suggestions for a fix in a month before I have to go back to school again

@2ksparevc have u exfoliated before usin carolight? Some ppls skin do endure hq on hands and feet very very well.. but on some ppls skin those areas will be a disaster.. and yes depending on ur skin carolight can make u orange but after a while it will peel and turns into a yellow color..

its impossible to lighten ur hands in a month especially in ur current hand situation.. your only choice would be to let urself darken.. let ur face darken to that point where it would look okay compared to ur hands.. and meanwhile u fix ur hands.. they can be very hard the hands..

use 15% la lotion.. then layer a natural lightener over it mixed with maxiwhite serum.. also make sure to moisturize them alot.. also try usin kojie san againe.. that should help unovertime.. the same u do with ur feet.. hq is probabley darken ur hands instead of lighten it

The orange color is from Carowhite it will wash away with time when you stop using it. Try using vitamin c serum or gel on your face to give you golden glow.

Use a celebrity or online photos to show your current tone and another one to show your goal.

@TRIUMPH someone at my goal is like zion b from the uk but its a pretty common colour tbh. My starting shade was like a shade lighter than akon (my shade months and years ago) and right now Im this weird complexion so I cant really compare it to a celebrity. Really lifeless and orange from the caro.
From what I am seeing your skin doesn't look good cause you didn't do things right stop whatever you are using.
Are you male or female.

@2ksparevc you are talking pictures in different light so I don't know which one is the real result.
I want you to post your current regimen.(this is important)
Are you AFRICA America or African I want to know if you are mix race.
Where are you located now UK, US or any country. It will be easier to get what you need when you know who to ask.
Do use foundation shades in NC AND NW for better understanding.

It looks like your skin just needs exfoliation. I recommend using amlatin for a week or two the using a KIT to sloth off the dead skin. Then use something mild like ikb lotion or Carotien to get to your desired tone make sure to skin build Shea butter

@TRIUMPH thanks for replying, I really need help as u can see and I really want to reach my goals if possible.
Im fully nigerian and live in new zealand so i get my stuff online. Im male so I dont know anything about that makeup but my original tone is probably like Victor Oladipo the basketball player.

Above ^, The middle darker photo is indoors right before I started using FW (around april) and the right is me right now outside after caro white and maxipeel 3. From April I used FW pink Gel and Lotion for maybe 4-5 months and it worked a little but I looked grey and hadnt lightened that much. I stopped and darkened alot. Around November I used the regimine that messed my skin up; Caro white lotion + oil + soap + maxipeel for like 2-3 weeks, 2-3 a day.

Right now Im just using shea butter and vitamin c serum and 2 days ago started taking 1000mg of vit c, because apparently that makes you glow and I look like a ghost. I just received some maxi peel and Im thinking about using it to fix my messed up neck and mouth/eyes/forehead thats covered, that didnt peel. I have some photos thatll hopefully make sense

Alright thanks @lightenme I was thinking that because since joining this site Ive learned I was supposed to exfoliate alot more before using creams. I have 60% LA and sea salt soap at home right now for exfoliation. Should I add a bit of the LA to a lotion and use that as a facial exfoliant?

And I also just received IKB Gel + Clear Clinic Oil and was thinking of giving the pink FW or the HQ free body clearing FW another shot, now that I know alot more from SCT. Should I mix 3 and use that? Thanks alot

P You did so many things wrong. First you don't have a regimen. You overly use HQ with combination of RA probably at the wrong time or in a wrong way. Skin building and sunblock are more important than lightening your skin. Right now you are getting advice from many people at once and it will probably get worse because you are overzealous. If you interact with people who have reached their goal fast and darken back like lightenme you will not be in haste at all to reach your goal. Look at lightening as a long term goal so take your time to get there.

My advice is you don't need any HQ products to get to your goal. Stop every lightening products use vitamin c serum and supplements use GA or LA lotion, LA and kojic glutathione soap sea salt soap all this only at night and not daily.
The Vitamin c serum can be use in daytime with moisturiser. Maxipeel on joints and knuckle 3 times a week only at night. Make sure you are fully exfoliated before using natural lightener.
