Hey yall,

im really having troubles with my hands. I can lighten my arms but not my hands for some reason, even though I've used way more things on them. I've tried LA (nothing), GA (flakes), RA (flakes), TCA (Has peeled me 3 times but never really lighten). I'm occluding with dodo + clear clinic + ra .1% right now but was wondering if anyone could suggest something else. I'm willing to use something powerful that'll work fast on just my hands, I really want to atleast match my arms.

For my arms Caro + Clear clinic + TCA worked but some reason , not on my hands

Thanks ! :)

Try toothbrush method with any great exfo-lightening soap...Do this three times a week, preferably at night...On nights you are not toothbrushing,use Retin-a.
Apply your lighter on your hands and wear your Non-latex glove or just use a cling-film.
Sounds ridiculous but you have to do what you have to do.

I had a similar issue, nothing worked until I came across Raphe Pharmaceutique HP bleach oil. I saw a major difference within a month of consistent usage. This serum has replaced my hand lotion because it is that moisturizing.

Yes! I use their whitening powder wash and kojic body wash. They no longer sell the powder wash (not sure why) but I still have a lot left from the last time I purchased. I use the powder wash in the AM and I mix the powder wash with the kojic wash in the PM.
I add the HP bleach oil to my lotion (I use DH7 gold lotion) I apply the lotion AM & PM initially but after achieving my goal I reduced to AM & PM 4 x a week.
Their products do not work overnight but if used as directed you'll start to notice a difference after 1 month of consistent usage. I like the results I get from their products compared to other brands and I've used A TON of different brands from high end to low end. The attached photo shows my 6 months progress. I don't intend to go any lighter as I'm happy with my results.🙂

Your skin tone is gorgeous. You’ve made good progress over the months. Do you know where I can find this oil in UK?

I've looked everywhere online but had no progress

Achihera is a UK based online store I came across while researching Raphe Pharmaceutique products. Apparently Raphe Pharmaceutique wholesales to this company as well as many other companies who then repackage the product under their private label.

You'll have to compare the ingredients list on Raphe Pharmaceutique website to Achihera's in order to find what you need since the products are renamed on their website.

Thank you @peggylicious. Congrats, your skin looks beautiful. Which kojic wash do you use? They have several listed on their site. Do they have retail prices? They seem to sell in bulk. Do you take any supplements?

I use the one called KOJIC BODY WASH. it cThey used to offer retail on their website until recently (within the last 3 months or so) TBH the wholesale price for the body wash comes out cheaper than if you bought retail. Check Walmart.com too they sell some of their products there.

I forgot to add that I only take prenatal vitamins with DHA for supplements, I have been taking these for over 10 years.
