What are your experiences with lightorexia? I was looking through some of my old photos and I remember when I took this pic I thought my hands and legs were too dark and they didn’t match my chest and I needed to bleach harder after I hit my goal of NC20 I wanted to be NC15 then NC10 I don’t know what was wrong with me I think there’s a certain high from jumping shades. You get treated differently, the compliments etc. and if I was looking in the mirror in a dark room I would be like omg I look dark but I was even lighter than some of my white friends. The funny thing is at the very beginning of my journey I wanted to be Megan goods color. Sorry for the messed up nails, I was originally sending this to someone to pay for my next fill in lol

@2toned you have yet to post a pic of your problem area(s).. what is your current tone?

From your posts, nothing works for your skin. People could better help you if they see what they’re working with.

^dont take this wrong

Yes I know how you feel if I don’t look light in every lighting situation I feel super dark! I used skin light for some months then a piona mix, then a dodo lotion, g&g lotion g&g oil mix and I would put on the dodo cleansing oil for a few mins then use dodo soap to shower, for hands I used la peel 90% then dodo and g&g mix in my “lightenme’s” journey to success I detail it a lot better and thank you!

Yes @Muse complexion is my favorite so far on sct, I think I posted this in my journey to success thread somewhere and it has my whole journey/regime, I’ll try to find the pg # and edit it in here and thank you!

try puttting on a 10% GA lotion on first wait 15 mins then use your mix! I hope that helps dodo lotion /G&G lotion topped with g&g oil and occlusion should help! Try a la peel on them first 90% be careful to only leave it on max 2 mins

Hi sun kissed lips how are you? Your results are absolutely gorgeous and beautiful.those knuckles look more Natural than a total clean knuckles. In my opinion totally clean knuckles look like a Barbie dolls hand (just my opinion no one should crucify me for it) good job girl.

Clear quick was popular here for like 6 months I think people liked it. Dodo oil feels so good I stopped after one bottle tho... That ish is expensive. @2toned
