Hey there @SkinQueen11 what are you needing help with?
@gymrat

Okay so I’ve been lightening for 4/5 years now. I used carolight cream to get to my goal. But I really wanna get off HQ & other creams like that. I started with Fair & White But caro gave me better results.
I wanna go 1 shade lighter, especially my face & simply maintain from there. Maintaining has been tricky. I also want to lighten my lips, knuckles and remove the dark eyes. I don’t want the bleached out look. I started breaking out too most likely cause of the cream and I want to stop this & remove the pimples.


I started a shade or 2 darker than Gabriella Union and I’m a caramel with yellow undertones. I want to be a light caramel with yellow golden undertones.


I use coconut oil & a Nivea sunscreen
I’m considering getting Kojic acid & mix it for myself. But I don’t know if that’s enough
I also want soaps to exfoliate & lighten
I’m considering African black soap & Kojic soap? I’m not sure where to purchase all these, I’m in South Africa
I’m gonna purchase regular Vitamin C supplements.


Please help in anyway possible? Thanks

What skin tone would you describe these people in the pictures? What would you consider their Mac Foundation?
I wanna use that as a measuring stick for my goal!
