Hello my beautiful people. I need help. I used Grace duo to peel off my knuckles because I had a wound on my middle finger knuckle that healed and left a dark knuckle,so I decided to use Grace duo on my knuckles to just clean them up,this was back in August (Big mistake) my knuckles got darker but never peeled. Since then I’ve been battling with it.

Please o my people,what can I use to clear this? My skin is even But these knuckles won’t let me be great in peace.Lol.. I’ve never had dark knuckle problems before or treated dark knuckles,bleaching gods where on my side and I didn’t have that problem even with my drastic change,but this is very embarrassing.

Please help a sister.

Please don’t suggest chemical peels or tca because I can’t find them here in nigeria. Glycolic/lactic acid Peels it’s hard to find an authentic one,I’ve bought a few and they turned out to be fake. Made my knuckles worse.

Attached pictures.

The first 2 pictures was when my knuckles where clean and normal.

The second batch (on pink background)is my knuckles now, picture without flash on.

The last pic is with flash light on.

Please feel free to contribute
Would appreciate any help or input I can get.

Piment doux is honestly amazing. The old formula never worked for me but the new formula worked wonders on my feet. I wore gloves to avoid my hands peeling and applied it to the dark areas on my feet for 5 days (until my skin was wrinkly) then I stopped and used regular moisturiser. It took two weeks to completely peel, but what was revealed was clear yellow skin. My skin have remained the same for 5 months and I have not done anything to maintain my feet just bathing once daily with regular shower gel and when I can be bothered with Asantee Papaya Soap then using regular moisturiser on them, they look beautiful honesty

Many people do not have good result with those Floris or Grace duo it always make knuckle worse than before. What ever you try next make sure you soak your hand in water and occlude with moisturizer. @ChuChu1

I used the old fomula too but it never worked for me. Glad there’s a new one now doing wonders. Will certainly try this out ASAP.

Thank you

Yes you’re right. The duo family is just something else. Mine didn’t even peel at all,just darkened and stayed that way. Will moisturise and occlude as you’ve suggested. Thank you

No specific product is the answer. I would avoid trends and go for those that have a good track record of working.

Basically you need a deep exfoliant, reliable lightner, and top notch sunscreen.

Exfoliants : if you dont mind looking like you have a flesh eating virus for a couple days, then go for a low grade TCA peel. Other alternatives are DIY LA/GA lotion.

Once you've exposed the lighter skin underneath, you now need to signal the skin to not produce an abundance of melanin. There's a plethora of products you can try. I like dodo+ikb gel.

Finally you need something to delay the body's response to sun exposure. Anything with high degrees of zinc oxide will do. I like eco lodge for face and devita burn out for body.


Yoo bee gud dere nah, chile!

Is this the product you guys were speaking of to remove dark toes and knuckles? I picked it up today in NYC. If so, how do I start using it on my toes and hands?

@2toned not sure where ? Have only bought from shops. I don't think there are fakes out there, but it may be more expensive buying online.
