First topic message reminder :

I read a post before, but now i cannot find it. I want to know where to buy lactic or glycolic acid at a good price. There was a post that included information about where to buy, they said you have to know how to use it b/c it comes with no instructions, but you get a lot more for your money.

Hey porcelian.
Allure is right, two months will probably be a good amount of time to see improvements. However, it depends on what your skin shade is now. If you are light like Tyra Banks two shade may not be hard to achieve but if your darker like say Imaan, it might take longer for you to see the difference. Everyones skin is diferent so no two people will have the same results.. I did use the Fair and White gel and wile I belive it lightend me well( stupid me forgot to take pictures), it redarkend me very soon after I nolonger used it. I shall now use hq 4% and ret a 0.05%.

I would go to the thread that contains various different whiteners

I do like some but I'm too big on them. For instance while I do enjoy some I really could not tell you who directed what movie lol. I prefer the suspense to the blood and guts. Now I don't mind a little gore but there has to be a central theme and can't be as dumb as Killer Klowns from Outer Space, that's right clown spelt with a "k". Lol if a movie has story like The Ring I can enjoy it.

Alizee love, trust me when I say, when used correctly and with proper care and maintenance, carrying out peels can be invaluable. I would recommend to anyone who is a tad cautious about trying it, that they should consider applying it to tougher areas like the knees and elbows and then see how good it can be. Even if you never use it on your face, it is great for the body.

Lol no maharani I know that it will not eat through me lol but years ago when people I knew first started getting acid peels done I did cringe. I know it can't literaly eat through you but it just sounded like it hurt lol.

The gore is ok but I find horror movies based in some sort of reality like saw to be the most terrifying because they could possibly happen.
Now I did find the haunting in Connecticut to be scary as h*ll lol.

Killer klowns is a very very very corny movie lol I mean the evil aliens look like clowns and use shadow puppets, popcorn blasters, and a cotton candy cacoon to kill peopl lmao

Alure I watched this because I had sen It *shivers* and so I thought this would make me not so freaked out by clowns and it worked. I still don't find clowns funny but they don't scare me

Alizee have you noticed how these movie directors market the best part of the film and then when you really get to see it, it just sucks? This has happen to me many times. I saw a preview to one recently and it looks so good..what was the name of it again? Hmmm, oh yeah SPLICE ...looks really good (well the preview).

Devils rejects? Sounds familiar

Hi guys,

Please can someone help me. Is Lactic acid really effective? How does one use it? And can you get it at any pharmacy? Do you use it in conjunction with skin lightening products? I am very sceptical with products containing hydroquinoine, is it really recommended to use them especially for long term? Or are they more natural and safe products that are very effective?

Thanks for all your help, much appreciated.

thats a lot to tackle, OK let the doctor operate (thats me if your wondering)

Is Lactic acid really effective?

i HEARD it's the best to use. or you can make your own most of the chemicals come from fruits this sit can show you home remedies for Lactic acid Malic acid Tartaric Acid Citric Acid and Glycolic acid peels.

How does one use it?

hmmm, rub it on your face lol.it it's store bought once evrey 2 weeks, or 1-3 time a week it's really up to you and how sensitive your skin. if it is homemade it may not be that strong so you might use it every day, maybe skip one.


And can you get it at any pharmacy?

yeah,maybe just go to any store or website no prescription is needed if thats what your getting at.

Do you use it in conjunction with skin lightening products?

you can, it;s best to start peeling 2 weeks before you get your product. but other people not associated with lightening use it all the time for fresh skin.

I am very sceptical with products containing hydroquinoine, is it really recommended to use them especially for long term?

well, studies shows it causes cancer but this is in rats exposed to high % of HQ in long periods of time. but people are not 100% sure if the effects will mirror in humans. you have a better chance getting cancer if you smoke and that can take up to 40 years. so i would say don't worry about it chances are you wont be using it for that long, but if your uncomfortable there are other options.

Or are they more natural and safe products that are very effective?

...yes

hope that helps, hands are getting tired, time for the Olympic finger stretch

Well with hq it is recomended to be used no more then six months at a time but there are some who have used it for years at a time with no ill affects.

Lactic acid is becoming ver popular these days and can be bought on amazon and ebay for around 15 bucks. I myself have not used it but have read others having great results. As always be careful and you might want to try a trial patch on your wrist or somwhere not noticeable plus the skin on your body is thicker then on your face

Lol yeah now if she had asked a psychological questin I probably would have nearly written a research paper lol. But your answer was informative lol

One more thing porcelianskin, if you do use this in conjunstion with hq and ret a you should stop using the ret a two to three days prior to doing a peel and wait a couple days afterwards before you start applying again.
