Well I haven't received any advice so I'm just diving straight in I have no time to waste. I'm deciding to use glycolic acid peel on my areas of hyper-pigmentation during exfoliating in order to get a deeper peel hopefully better results since the skin is thicker and tougher. Besides that I bought LA Lotion 12%, Vitamin C Serum, Koji San Soap, and KIT. I'll be doing the regi I posted only difference is I'll be using glycolic acid peel instead. I'll do hammam baths/sea salt bath 1-3x a week. When I feel as if my skin is completely even or close to it which I feel will be 3-6 weeks. I'll take a one week break from exfoliating and do a full body peel w/ yellow peeling oil. Then straight onto lightening after that. I'll need to come up with a lightening regi while I exfoliate.

@CaramelCoffee apply your vit c serum and la lotion on damp skin for quicker results

These pictures were taken in slightly different lighting both in front of a window. I have neutral/olive undertones which I feel are nice sometimes but I'm going for more of a caramel pale-yellow shade like the girls i posted above @PinotNoir

Yeah your skintone is kind of like mine, neutral - your body looks closer to NC47ish. That pale yellow is around NC40-NC42 - keep us posted on your progress.

I'm about a third way thru my exfoliating journey! My products took forever to get here but my skin is glowing already. My routine was so quick I feel as if I should add more but what else is there to add? :rolleyes: i'm a little obsessed with how I look now. I'm taking my time exfoliating I wanna be even as possible before introducting any lighteners. About a month before I'm finished exfoliating I'm going to need ya'll help on picking a lightening route. I'm using strong lighteners in an attempt to lighten fast.

Options for lightening regimens so far:

  • Labi Cream + Oil + G&G Cream + Oil
  • Nadinola, Labi, GG
  • dodo cream,oil,soap
  • Kligman formula?* (hq+ra+roid)
  • Maxi white serum
  • Supplements: vitamin c, vitamin e, nac, collagen, msm

These are DIFFERENT products im considering not thinking of using them all at once for clarification lol. I'm thinking using a variation of the first two bullet points with maxi white serum and RA. I also heard good reviews about ikb might have to do more research into some potent lightening mixes for myself.

If those first two don't work then may consider dodo however I will update. My "skin washing" technique and occlusion are a given with whatever mix I choose just need help with picking a mix. Will update later with more considerations after i do more researching.

@CaramelCoffee if you want to lighten fast I know steroid mix that will get you pale yellow tone.

Just curious why Reverse by Rodan and Fields isn’t in your list to try!!??

How’s it going so far??
I’m doing good my skin is glowing I haven’t seen much difference yet as I just recently started exfoliating. Maybe need to practice better SAP or it’ll take more time. What is this Rodan Product? @JennZed
