lol nooo you arent the only guy here. You would need Hydroquinone (HQ)4% and in combination with Retin-A 0.1%. This is the proven and effective method for skin lightening. It is possible to get that complexion, but it would take some time. As far as exfoliating is concerned, simple facial srubs like St Ives Apricot scrub or a Exfoliating Cloth would be nice. Use one-twice a week depending on your skin. Thats about it, apply it either at the same time (can be very irritating) so you can do it alternatively, as in you apply retin-a then wait 30 minutes and then apply the HQ. Use a pea size about of both creams. Make sure to clean your face properly with skin cleanser and use sunscreen as skin under the influence of HQ is VERY sensitive to light and can easily darken if proper steps are not take. Use a strong SPF 75+. Welcome to the forums and good luck!

Hi PaulWalk & welcome to the forum! I see you've met Reyaz01. The above advice is fantastic. Read around for a while-about Tretinoin (Retin A or simply RA) & read about Hydroquinone (HQ). You can definitely lighten from the shade you are to the one you want. When I began in Jan, I was the same dark red tone as Jermaine Jackson. I am muhc lighter now. Has I just continued with rapid lightening, I'd be very fair by now BUT I wanted to experiment & test different alleged lightening products & formulations. Speed is not my goal; I want to gain a thorough knowledge about lightening agents. I want to 'ceack the code' & help make safe effective lightening readily accessible & available. I resent these companies who charge a fortune for cheaply made products that give iffy results.
