I was thinking of mixing retin A and lactic acid with some skin whitening cream that I am using now to get rid of some blemishes on my face. Will my skin lighten faster this way?

Hi lighten and thanks for the response the concentration on the lactic acid is 88%. Is that strong enough or do I need something stronger?

I have not used lactic acid in any concentrations yet to be honest because I am afraid that my face will start to peel at the wrong time like at work so I am kind of scared. Can I wear a moisturizer in the day so that it doesn't peel and then wash it off when I get home?

do it friday right after work and you'll peel be saturday night or sunday morning, of course you can use a moisturizer, or if I may suggest that you take friday off, do the peel thursday after work and ull be good by monday night. Lactic is a very superficial peel, therefore, the downtime is not as long as medium to strong peels like TCA/Glycolic, for lactic the downtime is 3 to 4 days.
