What us Tca 40% soap please?sounds interestingHi Guys,
I'm new (again) to SCT and have just restarted my lightening journey after redarkerning.
I've just gone 2 weeks doing chemical exfoliant (17% GA/LA lotion), salt baths which helps so much and although I haven't lightened, I am definitely exfoliating. Is this enough time to start my skin lighteners?
I plan to use MitchellBrands, because previously I use Makari and also Nigerian 'natural' lotions and they gave me stretch marks which till this day is incurable (altho TCA 40% soap helped so much to reduce them, and now I'm going to start microneedling).
I was looking at the lightenUp gel (same ingredients as OMIC brightening gel) and the LightUp lotion OR a kojic acid/papaya lotion - which one might be better? the gel has arbutin (NO HQ for me except for my knuckles)
I plan to be more like Yara Shahidi colour. Not too light because when I did become VERY light - I looked pale and sick. I like caramel to my skin
