Does anyone have tips on how to lighten evenly? I've been bleaching for almost 3 years now but my skin is blotchy. I exfoliate 3 times a week and use RA. Did anyone have luck with anything that gave an even skintone? I cant walk out without foundation anymore

if it’s your face get a professional peel done if it’s body use maxi peel 3

I have blotchy skin on my back especially the middle area. My back looks like Dalmatian lol

I have short arms that’s the problem :( @lightenme I used to use maxi peel 1 and it killed all the acnes and faded most acne dark spots on my face after post peeling and made my neck same tone as my chest. Maxi peel was my favourite peel to use. I can’t stand smell of la and ga stings within second after applying.
Sadly the Filipino store where I used to buy it from, they no longer stock them.
Do u know where to buy authentic maxi peel online?

@shallalah we all want to be beautiful and we all r willing to do certain sacrifices...your sacrifice would be to endure the smell of la or ga.. use one of them both like few times a week.. with a good exfo soap.. and u should even up overtime.. and for face use the fw aha lotion it will also even u up nicley..

@shawtykid20 so I used to leave asantee papaya soap on my face for about 5 minutes before I wash it off everyday with G&G oil but that didnt help with evening out and it dries out my skin. Now what I do is asantee 3x a week usually at night with clinic clear oil, ikb gel and cream and RA 0.025% 3 or 4 times week. In the mornings I would wash with a mild soap and then clinic clear oil and ikb cream. That's all do for my face.

I don't use any aha products, just the asantee soap. My feet is pretty blotchy but I that's excepted because I dont exfoliate my feet as often as I should. My arms and hands lightened pretty evenly. To me my face is my biggest issue. I've used 5% and 10% LA on my face in the past for a couple months but it didn't help with evening my skin. I've been using RA for about 1.5 months and I dont see any improvements. I feel like maybe I need to ditch IKB and look for something else?

Absolutely nothing works like a low concentration 10-20% TCA peel for evening out skin I’ve done 4 last year and I think my skin is pretty even.i would advise a professional though I have medical background and I’m light to begin with I guess

try using a aha lotion on your face 3 times a week for 6 weeks . When you used la before was it a lotion or just peels
I used just a serum with 5% LA and then went up to 10%. I found that it gave me super soft skin to the touch but no change in the blotchy-ness. Is aha stronger than LA. I realized Im skin cant candle too much acidity. 5% GA burned my feet last year and I'm still recovering from it. I know GA is stronger than LA so I would never put that near my face and neck
