First topic message reminder :

What are your thoughts on this? What if I should mix Nadinola and 20 grams of MQ together along with RA? Anyone tried this before? Let me know what you think.

enticing thanks for explaining that. I am a little bit scared of the idea of using steroids on my skin. Even HQ worries me a bit. I just really want to get a lighter tone without the awful spots I got from the last thing I tried. I guess if I don't get the results I want then it is something I can consider.

I know that you will have a lot of useful info that you can share with others and I am sure they are going to love your vidoes. I always did !!! Ondine and LNL are also very welcome, though I don't know where they would get the time. I barely do myself !!!

Retin A (Tretinoin) combats all the negative effects of the steroid and Hydroquinone! I've said this before and I'll say it again Retin A is gold in a tube!

Retin A is used to treat ochronosis in patients in Africa! When used with Hydroquinone your chances of deveoloping Ochronosis or any negative result with hydroquinone is near imposible!

make sure you use Tretinoin with EVERY application! I advice 0.1 percent Retin A. it has sooo many benifits! you'll be fine if you use this stuff with Retin A!

one of the worlds most renowned dermatologist (kligman) proves this! there is 40 years of research backing this up! Very Happy

what I'm a bit on edge about is mono...so far all I've read are very educated theories...but I wanna try it...I'm gonna be using it with Retin A and I'm gonna be very cautious...omg

Enticing do you know if this source is legit. I am seriously thinking about using mono like you but know that there are so many scammers out there. The price seems very cheap compared to what I have seen before as well.

I dont know rainbow thats the thing...i have so much to show you guys in the video! I really love this forum sooo much...its so nice a small...i hope it doesn't grow to fast...i like the little community that i have now.

i got soo much chafing from my jeans and also i think i scratch my self in my sleep cause you know the retin A itches...

but based on whats written on the mono instructions paper and stuff...once your pigment isn't superfical or it isn't caused by...


hold this is what it says:

Benoquin Cream is 20% purified Monobenzyl ether of hydroquinone (MONOBENZONE CREAM USP) in a special base.

Action and uses:

Benoquin cream exerts a powerful inhibiting effect on pigmented formation in the melanin producing cells of the skin.

Benoquin cream can be used for patients with Generalized vitiligo who wish to achieve uniform colour

"benoquin cream cannot be expected to treat hyperpigmentation from pigments other than melanin, these include bile, silver, or artifical pigments incorperated into the skin. it has not proven of value in the treatment of cafe au lait sports pigmented navi, or in malignant melanoma"

Administration

1. Benoquin Cream is rubbed into the desired areas of the skin two or three times daily until desired degree of depigmentation is obtained.

2. Exposing the treated areas to sunlight should be avoided since ultraviolet radiant tends to neutralize the depigmentation action of the drug.

3. Depigmentation is usually observed after one to four months of daily application.

4. At times a burning sensation of five to twenty minutes duration may be experienced shortly after application of the cream. the burning sensation will, as a rule disappear after several weeks of use and does not require discontinuation of therapy.

5. After the desired depigmentation is obtained, only apply the cream only as necassary to maintain the results, treatment may be as infrequent as two applications peer week.


CAUTION:

In some individuals excessive and irreversible loss of pigmentation may be caused by this preperation. A small number of patients will develop some degree of skin irritation or sensitization ranging from erythema to dermatics, Clinical results do not appear to be affected. Spacing treatments further apart and permitting dermatitis to subside will surface in most instance.

Now there is nothing in there based on what I've read that says or implies that some one without vitiligo cannot use this stuff and expect fabulous results...I think its how you use it!

ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME ONLINE AND SCREAMED THAT THEY GOT DISFIGURED AND ALL NEVER TRIED MONO FROM THE TUBE! THEY ALL BOUGHT POWDERS! POWDERS THAT THEY DIDN'T KNOW ANY THING ABOUT...THATS IF IT WAS MONO TO BEGIN WITH...THEY ALL BOUGHT THESE POWDERS...MIXED IT THEM SLEVES AND OMG..

THIS STUFF STATES CLEARLY AND PRECISELY WHAT IT DOES...AND ITS ONLY FOR ONE THING...AND BASED ON WHAT THE INSTRUCTIONS SAY...MONO IS NOT PERMANENT...IT MIGHT BE IN SOME CASES AND SOME INDIVIDUALS....BUT TREATMENT MUST BE MAINTAINED TO KEEP UP RESULTS.

as I said I'm not gonna try it now...cause I still wanna clear up some stuff with the hydroquinone...

um....for those of you going to try the steroid with the hydroquinone and tretinoin...hold off on the steroid for a while...because I think this unplesant redness is because of the steroid...um...I'll talk about that more in my video...

i tried using hydroquinone, and tretinoin without the steroid for two days and I think the redness was going away...it was really interesting...you can get good results without the sterioid...but it will definately take a longer time...one thing when I use the steroid my scars turn fire truck red..its like they're glowing.

the mequinol does a good job too but its not something I would apply everyday..but for some reason it helped a bit...but I'm gonna try without the steroid for a while...

also I think it was the steroid which made my nipples pink bit but I just cant stand the redness all over my body...

I think the mequinol, hydroquinone, Tretinoin and mono would make for an EXCELENTE Skin lightening regimen, however I would NOT recommend mixing them in the palm of your hand all at once and applying!

it would be good to switch it up ONE THING IS FOR SURE! USING TRETINOIN WITH ALL OF THEM WOULD BE THE BEST IDEA!!!!!! AS TRETINOIN MAKES EVERYTHING WORK BETTER AND IS JUST GOLD IN A TUBE!!!! ONE OF THE BEST CREATIONS EVER!

PS: WALK WITH AN UMBRELLA AND USE SUN BLOCK! THE SUN IS THE DEVIL! IT CAN REALLY MESS YOU UP! ALOT OF THE TIME PEOPLE DONT GET EVEN RESULTS BECAUSE THEY DONT APPLY EVENLY OR THEY TAKE THE SUN FOR GRANTED....PEOPLE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW SERIOUS SUN AVOIDANCE WHEN IT COMES TO SKIN LIGHTENING...YOU ALMOST HAVE TO AVOID IT 100% I UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE A LIFE...GET AN UMBRELLA WEAR YOUR SUN BLOCK EVEN DURING WINTER AND CLOUDY DAYS THERE IS NO AVOIDING IT!

YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOU SUN AVOIDANCE SERIOUSLY!

enticing i love your posts. So much information in there. I noticed you are from New york which I am guessing is a bit like London. How do you cope with putting your umbrella up without everyone gawping. I wore a sunhat recently and everyone was looking at me like why don't you soak up some of them sunrays. If ure not white they seem to think that you shouldn't have any kind of protection.

thanks sweety!!! Very Happy

for me I DONT CARE!!! I WANNA LOOK AS GOOD AS I CAN FOR AS LONG AS I CAN AND IF THAT MEANS BEING MARY POPPINS THEN I'LL TAKE A SPOONFULL OF SUGAR! i dont understand how people hate their skin soo much..they hate the uneveness and all the damage! yet they wont do the things Necessary to protect them seleves becuase of what people are gonna say!!! give me break!

umbrella or no umbrella i get called fagot all the time...fagot...homo...gay boy! p***y! i've been called every name in the book...as kid it almost killed me...as a teenager it bothered me...as an adult i dont give a d**n! and as much verbal assults I recive I recive just as many comments!

I've seen how damaging the sun can be! and lets not lie people with sun damage especially people of color LOOK VERY UNATTRACTIVE AND UGLY...by what society's set and imposed standards are...so I'm gonna allow the sun to damage me becauase of what people are gonna say? and is that gonna make a difference after I'm damaged? their gonna find some thing else to say! instead of just fagot they're gonna say "ugly fagot"....to bad....i'm holding up my umbrella everyday..I go onto the bing website and I look at the UV scale...they've got the hourly forcast...the UV rays goes up to level 10 at between 12-3 pm on some days...even during winter sometimes...h*ll no!!!

Kim these same people who are gawping are going to be living at the dermatologist's office in the next 10-20 years when they've realized that they've aged dramatically and they look way older than they really are!

the sun is responsible for 90% of the wrinkles you get...I know this information and I'm gonna go frolic with the devil! NO NO NO !!! NO!!! AND THE SUN IS THE DEVIL!

I just gotta get rid of these scars and I haven't really decided how light I'm going to go...but one thing's for sure...I have the ammunition to blast my pigment into the next century! and I'm going to protect my skin from the devil's h*ll while doing so!

Umbrella's all the way!!!! Smile

I may do this mix if it is working for you. I keep coming across posts saying that mono is going to disfigure me, so don't know which way to turn. I am really looking for a dark or black person to let me know the possibilities. the whole mono thing seems so difficult to get info on.

sweety all this disfiguration depends on alot of things...like sun protection, the agent is applied, how often! WAS YOUR SKIN EVEN TO BEGIN WITH! ONE HAS TO WORK ON THESE HYPERPIGMENTED AREAS BEFORE applying the cream in a uniformed manner...

also using mono with Tretinoin decreases the risk of disfiguration!

its really not as bad as people are making it out to be...everyone is scared of hydroquinone screaming CANCER CANCER! there is are NO reports of hydroquinone being linked to any form of cancer in humans....

AFTER MICHAEL JACKSON'S DEATH SOME THING LIKE TWO DOZEN TUBES OF MONOBENZONE AND HYDROQUINONE WERE FOUND IN HIS HOUSE! THE POST-MORTEM EXAMINATION RRULED OUT THE VERY THOUGHT OF ANY OF THESE DEPIGMENTING AGENTS HAVING ANY THING TO DO WITH DEATH.

my advice...what I'm doing now...I'm working on healing my skin...and making it even with mequinol, tretinoin and hydroquinone I think I might be switching steroids or I might leave the steroid out I'm not sure...

after that I'll try implementing monobenzone into my regimen to get to the skin tone I want.

I always make sure to take my sun protection very seriously!

I dont do it too often...I'm using 10 percent mequinol and what I do I usually squeeze a some hydroquinone, tretinoin and mequinol in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together to mix all of them up, then apply.

things are going bad right now...I really need to make that video.
