Hey girl good to hear about your last update, results give you a boost to work harder. i have an update also remember 5 months ago i said i have dots well now it became a whole pale patch in my thighs and behind my knees in only a month , and thats only because i started mixing mac tube with uniquin, cause i was using uniquin alone and didnt see other results than dots in my body And sensitive skin, and last month I started mixing and voilà new patches please keep us updated as i will too. Also an advice u really need to moisturize a lot use vaseline and vegetable glycerin together u will notice the dead skin falls faster when you scrub your skin yea and u need to scrub your skin every week so that you apply monobenzone on new skin
where did you buy the uniquin?

UPDATE : Last time i posted was roughly about a month ago .
I have recently been having great great results . I believe if I apply everyday and occlude i can be fully DE pigged within a year or soo. I have been very motivated lately more than usual, I thought that it wouldn't work for me and that i had been wasting my money . Its basically summer now here and i have literally been avoiding the sun like the plague , i try to go out either early in the morning or in the evening after the sun has set . I have finished uni for the year soo I don't have any obligations that needs me out of the house.
I am DE pigging in spots which I don't really mind as opposed to even lightening because I know if I do , id probably get a lot of backlash from family and from people around me , which will probably cause me not to be able to depigg fully as they would probably throw all of my benoquin 😭😭 , but I can defo use vitiligo as an easy way to depig without any criticism . If you're using monobenzone and not seeing results I'd try occluding with cling film and taking vitamin c everyday .

SOO IF YOURE SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO USE MONOBENZONE BUT WOULDNT WANT TO DEPIG IN SPOTS I WOULD DEFINTETLY AVOID MONOBENZONE .

I have been using Benoquin 20% and Tretinoin 0.1% . I use retin A and benoquin mix on my body everyday only once a day though I'm too lazy to apply twice a day but it would probably give me faster results though . i also occlude my legs every single day ( probably why my legs are having faster / better results then the rest of my body ) . After i finish apply on my legs i always get lazy and don't bother occluding any other part . Soo i'd say i occlude my upper body about once a week .
I only use benoquin on my face mostly and only apply Tretinoin on my face once a week. If 20% is sufficient and giving me good results over the summer period i will decide not to use 40% and just use 20% my whole journey. Maybe I'll just use 40% when I'm fully de pigged for weekly maintenance.

Face
my face is DE pigging in spots , not to scared about it . i spent all of high school with acne and have just recently lived a life a perfect clear skin soo I'm not self conscious when it comes to my face at all. The white spots i had that where just light and underneath the skin have started becoming more apparent and whiter which I'm extremely happy about . I have spots around my mouth but the sides of my face are more of patches . i can see underneath that there are more spots that want to come out . i think my face might take longer especially now that its summer 😭 .

Legs
My right leg has started to depig in spots and now they're forming together , most of my inner right thigh is almost depigged . my left leg has big birth mark behind my knee and I've seen that that its also starting to depig aswel . i believe with occluding everyday , it could have great improvements within a couple months . My legs are soo far doing extremely , maybe because its the place that i occlude mostly.

Arms:
my arms have been coming along nicely recently im seeing whites spots popping up in my inner arm . I'm extremally lazy to normally occlude my arms soo i think that's one of the main reasons its pretty far behind my legs .

Upper body:
My neck and chest has been doing great , a lot of new spots are forming not white but lighter in color which im pretty happy about . My belly has been making slow progress but I'm going to try and increase occluding there as much as possible.
