Hi guys! It is week 7 for me & as promised, here's a photo. It is taken against a white wall in natural day light. I have striven to get an authentic photo. This is the best I could do & it is a touch darker than my actual hand. In another few weeks, I'll take another shot in the same lighting for you to compare. My face, neck & upper chest are a little lighter than my hands (the skin on these areas is thinner so results appear faster)

Wow! I guess the retin a an hydroquinone really did blend your knuckles! I hope it works for me just as well as it worked for you. Thanks so much for all your help!

Awesome even hands wow!... did you have to go through a time of only applying tiny dabs of product to knuckles? or were you already even?

my joints(knuckles, elbows, knees) are all darker than the surrounding skin.

I can't believe someone dug up that ancient hand shot! WOW! My hand is soo much lighter than that now. It does show how the blending worked. Taking time to blend in the beginning will spare you from blotchy results later.

yes but it takes so much work to keep it up. that's why i don't want to change the color of my body. IMO i'm lazy and broke, it takes too much work and money to maintain an overall bleaching. Ondine you got courage or determination.

blackgirl111, if you use the HQ/RA from ADC it is cheaper than brand name lotion from Walmart. If you don't want the hassle of applying creams daily, then I see what you mean: it isn't for everyone. Once you get the result, though, all you have to do is apply a couple of times/week to maintain. The tough part IMO is in the beginning when you get all that shedding from the RA & you're dying to see results & it just seems to be taking forever!
