I've been using New Light cream on my feet to get a peel. Nothing peels my body. New light is supposed to be used on elbows, knuckles and feet.

So now the peel is happening and I'm nervous. I didn't know the skin under would be so light. Would it match up with the rest of my legs? Is this processes of littlerally peeling off the top layer normal?

Should I stop? I'm using 100%raw cocoa butter to moisturize in between.

Yes it would match up with the rest of your body. I’m hooked on lactic acid lotion but I think I’m gonna stop because now it’s makiing my arms and legs red. Like after the peeling process it’ll look light , then a few hours later it’ll look red. Maybe that’s what will happen to your feet. However I’ve never heard of New Light Cream. How long did it take you to peel?

New Light Zaban cream. There's a thread here on it. It contains syalic acid.

It says you should not use it past 3/7 days but I mixed it with Caro white since the threads here recommend to not use it alone. It took 7 days for this to happen. And my skin is so stubborn I think it only started because I started to use a thin layer of the cream by itself from the tube first, before using a moisturizer because mixed in with the caro white wasn't doing anything at all.

Wow. I think I want to try it. I’m trying to lighten my arms about 3-4 shades but all the LA lotion is doing is peeling my arms and making them look red. The only thing that scaring me is that you said it made you darker for a few days before it peeled you? How dark are we talking?

I didn't make me darker. I just stopped using the serum and lightening cream that I was using before.

I only mixed it with Caro white because it was recommended on a thread here to not use it without a mixing it with a lightener.

Maybe the part you're referring to was when I said I didn't expect the skin underneath the peeling to be so light and I was weary of it looking weird.

Research the cream (check the Amazon reviews) and see if you can find the threads here about it. (Should be 2 or 3.) I'm a totally beginner and have tons of questions myself so I'm more comfortable if you don't take my word as bond.

LA can cause you to be red if the strength is too high for you. What % are you using? Lower it and see if the redness goes away. @Lightpapi

I think the % I use is like 25. But I’ve lowered the % before and it didn’t peel me. So it’s kind of like a lose lose situation.

Oh without a doubt its the strength!! On the areas you have peeled you don't want to apply 25% over it......lower the strength for those areas.

I remember your post on the other thread. There were some good reviews so I'm hoping to be one of them.

Were you ever able to fix the dark areas?

Ok I will do that. But what if the strength I lower it to, doesn’t peel me?

If the area has already peeled you need to let it heal, you don't want to continue applying LA lotion over freshly peeled skin. But if you are experiencing redness its from using too strong of a solution, and LA will definitely do that. Your skin is trying to tell you something......don't ignore, its smarter than you think!

What’s do you recommend me to use other then LA lotion? I’m just about done using this crap. All it did was make me red, and when I did lower the dosage, it just didn’t peel me at all. My main goal are my arms and legs to be high yellow.

Your skin is red because its irritated.......you can't expect over night results, it takes time and a whole lot more patience. LA works great if used right. But I will tell you if you are using 25% daily your creating a disaster. Slow down, lower the strength, and give it time to work, don't expect to wake up peeling in sheets because you will be disappointed when it doesn't happen.

Hoping from product to product makes it really difficult to know what is working and what isn't.......it takes weeks to know if one product will work for you, give it 6-8 weeks minimum, 12 weeks is perfect!

You've been a member here for 5 weeks........not long enough to know if LA will work for you, but long enough to know 25% is much too strong!

@gymrat I have a question. I use caro white tube for my face for about a few months and it makes my face a nice yellow-ish color. However I use it only once a day (at night)... however every time I try to use it in the day time and use it at night as well, I wake up with my face red. So I noticed that I must only use that lightening tube once a day in order for me to maintain my yellow-ish face...however the only problem is I want my face to be about 2 shades lighter then it’s current shade. What cream do u recommend for me to use to give my face an extra boost to get lighter but not red. I’m looking to use whatever product u recommend in the day time. Then before I go to bed, just to use my regular caro white tube. Any suggestions?
