Thanks everyone, goatlady, I used HQ4%/RA0.025% as well as glycerin soap before every application and occasionaly using St Yves Apricot scrub to remove some of the scaly skin left behind by the RA.

live1 - i know its verry soon, don't know how but it just works on my skin, i tell you the 2nd day i was seeing results already. Maybe it's because i was naturally lighter. I got dark tans from the beaches in my country.

Anyways thanks for all your supports

you got flawless smooth skin for a guy! nice job
ALSO: point to be noted, the first pic was taken indoors in low lighting, the second pic was taken probably in the bathroom with natural lighting which makes skin tone lighter obviously.

My skin responded so rapidly to the HQ4%/RA0.1% blend that I deliberately slowed down because I was getting that washed out look. Could be that some of that dark colour was a tan. In my case, some of it was sun induced hyperpigmentation. Apparently, hyperpigmented skin lightens more quickly than a person's 'normal' melanin. This is not a myth, but a fact from one of the artcles I posted somewhere in the forum. The derms aren't sure why this is but it makes sense on a visceral level.

Reyaz, your results are totally awesome! I just can't wait for my creams to arrive now!!! Did you mix them together? That's what I plan to do if my skin can tolerate it.

WOW! You achieved great results! I agree with Nina...very handsome. Your skin was beautiful before. I wish my complexion was that clear. I'm still trying to clear up my acne before I really focus on lightening and I'm almost there...woohoo! Congrats on your progress.

Thanks guys for all the comments


@karenannev thanks, i did mix both together and it made all the difference in the world. But be careful, when i first did it with 0.1 RA i nearly seared off my head lol. Thats why i use .025% and workin my way up.

@goatlady i use a combination of 4%HQ & 0.025% RA. I use it in the morning and night before I go to bed. Of course if im going out I don't put anything on except sunscreen. Before applying the HQ/RA I rinse my face thoroughly using Glycerin soap or St Ives Apricot scrub (only if there is alot of scaly skin from the use of RA). And thats about it! Happy lightening!

lol today my bro was lookin at face and asked "your skin looks weirdly lighter than usual". I laughed so hard. I let him in on it though that way he'll buy all the stuff
lol jk. Anyways couldn't of possibly done it with the amazing help and encouragement everyone hear has given me. Goddess of Earth, ondine, lightennlift, nina if there is anything i can do for yuall holla
you've been amazing. Everyone else keep lightening lol.... at this rate we'll all be caucasian by christmas lol kiddin'..... gl!
