Hi all!

I used to be a lurker on SCT a few years ago (7yrs? damn).

I think I stumbled onto the site when I was looking for a way to get rid of some mild acne scarring on my face... I ended up fooling around with the fair&white line of products for a few months until i realized that the HQ was making me too light and that had not been the plan. Plus I could not meet the financial commitment for the other plans I had :(
So I stopped, life went on, and I sort of forgot all about SCT.

Now I'm back! and I have some money! (Cardi B voice) πŸ˜†

Anywho... I have decided to make some changes to my body and knew this is the best place to start since there is such a treasure-trove of information and experiences (both good and bad).

My problem areas:
My Lower Back
My Butt
My Thighs (Inner & Back)
My Elbows
General eveness

I know :D, the most annoying areas really!
Those areas are uneven and dark! About 2 shades darker than the rest of my body. Then there's the issue of the permatan I've had for years on my arms and lower legs, but at least those are even.

For a visual...

My face tone is the same as the Miss in this photo while my chest and upper arms are like the Mr.
I know they may look the same, but from my view the Mr seems a bit lighter and brighter than the Miss.
My goal is to get an even of the Miss or the Mr since they are pretty close in tone and a shade or less from me πŸ˜…

I'd love to post pics of myself here for beginning and progress but I remember some sad drama from a few years back...

Thank you to those that made it all the way to the end of this long read πŸ˜πŸ‘ we are almost done πŸ‘Ί
