I definitely have. Not going out at all means I’ve gotten alot lighter even though I’m only on supplements & exfoliating. I have a busy life and usually I’m out of the house 6 days out of the week. I didn’t realise the impact even a little bit of sun has in my 30 minute commute.

I've definitely seen results since lockdown started. I have started a new regime so that's likely most of it but I've also managed to avoid the sun since I'm not going out which I'm sure has helped as well.

@BansheeQueen keep it up, are you using natural lighteners or hq lighteners
Thank you! I'm going all natural this time. I tried HQ a few years ago and I only got darker which put me off skin lightening for a while. I spent a lot of last year doing a lot of research so I'm giving it another go with more natural ingredients and it's definitely paying off

@shawtykid20 I’m in the UK. You? What’s your regi right now
@PatisMe oh never knew , you see how nice it’s been in the uk now. For exfoliation 3 times a week in the pm i use diy 12% ga lotion on body and fair and white aha cream on face, once a week I used Dead Sea salt soap with exfoliating gloves . for lightening I used dodo lotion on face and on body I use dodo lotion with 2 fair and white ka serum. This is my goal tone would be this. What is your regimen

I'm using a kojic acid soap for my body AM and PM, and a DIY cream made of L-Gluta, Sepiwhite and Alpha Arbutin for body and face AM and PM. I've also started taking pycnogenol tablets as well as I saw people have had good success with it in another thread. It hasn't been a month so too early to tell but the dark spots on my face have definitely been fading faster since taking them. I take that along with 20,000mg Reduced L-Glutathione, 21,000mg collagen, omega 3 and my daily multivitamin. I'm sticking with this regime for another 4-6 months and I'll assess if I need to add anything/if anything isn't working but so far so good!

@shawtykid20
I mean its been raining for a few days over here. Pretty much exfoliate 2/3 times a week with 15% GA Lotion, moisturise with Cerave Cream the rest of the time, face weekly the ordinary 30% aha then cerave, also ordinary niacinamide pm and vitamin c serum am. Occasionally shower kojie san.
Supps - 4000mg Acetyl Glutathione, 4500mg Liposomal Vitamin C, 1200mg NAC, 300mg Milk Thistle, 6000mg MSM Daily, lots of water like 3Litres. IKB Gel on Lips
I don’t know what my goal shade is probably lighter than Rihanna or thereabouts.
Going all natural till end of the year to see how light i get

@BansheeQueen what kojic acid soap brand do you use? I got kojie San but I can’t tell if mine is fake or not
I'm using one from SHCGlutathione. My mum tried Kojie San she got from Amazon but she ended up getting darker so I doubt it's the real thing. The one I have is more expensive (about £5 more) but it's much bigger and has helped to lighten me much better than Kojie San.

@shawtykid20 Scotland. Guaranteed shitty weather most of the time. Tbh not so great I’m not overly consistent and i wake up in the middle of the night to drink water which doesnt help probably. Trying to be better with it. Upper lip is not that dark so im like im ok with not having perfect pink lips you know. I’ll see where they get to by end of year with consistency.
