Hi All,

I have a few quick questions for you:

1. How long have you been lightening your skin?
2. Do you put skin bleaching products on your skin everyday?
3. What is the main ingredient in the skin bleaching products that you use? (ie--HQ, arbutin, Vitamin C, etc)
4. What is your ethnicity? (ie--black, Indian, other)

Responses to these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Dont try mequinol, it'll be blotchy and will take a long time to see slight results. You are better off exfoliating the dark skin away with Retin-A and blending in the uneven areas with HQ or try doing a couple of TCA/Lactic Acid peels.

Here are my answers:

1. I've been brightening my skin since 2008.
2. Yes
3. I use the Makari Night Cream. It costs about $50 for a 3.38oz tube, but I try to buy it on sale. The main ingredients in this product are Arbutin and Licorice Extract.
4. I'm black. Nigerian. I'm not really interested in changing my complexion. I just want my facial skin and body skin to be even. I want to be one color all over.

You must be white hispanic. About half of all hispanics are white and some can trace their ancestry to Spain or Germany.
