Do you mean making a DIY lactic acid cream with Carowhite as the base cream? If so, then yes you can apply the mix and leave it on all day. However I'd recommend starting your DIY at 12% or lower especially if it's your first time - most skin tolerates this concentration well.
If whatever concentration you decide to use burns/gets uncomfortable you have to wash it off immediately
Thats what I meant. Thanks. My first time using Amlactins 15% LA lotion irritated/ gave me a burning feeling on my neck and I had to completely wash it off. But I also layered it with Retinol, which I read is a no-no. Tonight I'm going to apply 50% LA Gel Peel to my knees, elbows, hands, buttock, and possibly my neck, since its not longer irritated. I'm hoping all goes well but I'm ready to neturalize it with water+baking soda the moment I feel a burn. :ROFLMAO:

You don't need to neutralize LA peels. Just remove with soap and water.

Do anyone know if using skin lightening products irritate skin tags or if they help get rid of them? I'm getting neck irritation around my skin tags but I also read that some people get a burning senstation when skin tags are in the proccess of dying; like when using apple cider vinegar. I'm now going to spend the next 2 or 3 days to see if I can remove my tags using the vinegar method.

Hello guys.. anybody knows if arbutin really turns into HQ in the body as many really claim in many sct threads? There wasent really a final response wether its all natural or turns into HQ inside of the body.
Uva Ursi, an herb supplement convert into HQ in the body, however the little research I’ve done in the past suggest that it can only be used for a short amount of time( 5days max) below a certain dosage and there is high risk of liver damage or other adverse side effects, but it’s readily available on Amazon!!! I discovered it while looking for things to internally disrupt the formation of melanin!!! HTH

Yes it does. Just slower and with less cell toxicity but it is a precursor to hydroquinone under the bodies conditions hence its lightening affect.

Hello everyone..
So i travelled away for a while. So i couldn’t exfoliate while away. Got back some days ago, stripped and looked in the mirror and i noticed my skin(body) has become extremely uneven and dark.

I just started using kojie san soap, i mask my body with kojieSan(neck-toes) i leave on till it completely dries, then i shower with exfoliating gloves. Afterwards, i moisturize with F&W AHA lotion.

But i feel like i am not getting the result i want. My skin still has this certain dirty look.
Please How Do I Effectively Exfoliate A Really Uneven Skin?

This is quite a solid exfoliating regimen, just give it time. Skin turns over every 3-6 wks depending so be a little more patient. Add a good non-lightening moisturising cream like shea butter in the meanwhile and try seasalt soaks they help

I just got my Retin-A .1% order and the gel looks different from the .025. The .025% is white and creamy, whereas the .1% is clear and greenish. Is that how its supposed to be? The .025% came from a reputable online store. The .1% came from a possibly sketchy store with bad reviews like "fake pills" and non-deliveries. Both ship out of India. The packaging on the .1% seems legit though.

.1% should be clear if its the gel form. What is the brand on it? And was the tube sealed? Can you snap a picture of the box? The one in question.

Why you gotta shop at sketchy stores with bad reviews @tartryer ;) your lucky you got your goods.
