Has anyone tried this all over body lightening milk? If so, was it effective?

Hi Mini Her,

Welcome to the board. I am familiar with Palmers skin sucess products and have used their fade cream years back. I would not say that I saw any dramatic lightening, but it does give a brightening effect and I would imagine that the fade milk would do the same. So maybe you could achieve an evening of the skin compexion but I would imagine nothing very dramatic. Do let us know how you find this product if you do decide to try it out.

Is there anything in particular you are trying to achieve?

Only want to lighten like 2 shades. Just to achieve a flawless brown complexion.

Where are you trying to correct? Is it all over or just certain areas, like the face. Is some of the ligtening you are trying to achieve, to resolve sun damage like a tan.?

Yes, I have been sunburn, and I am trying to lighten my entire body 2 shades. I'd prefer a lotion or something I don't have to mix in the palm of my hands!

Have you thought about starting off with a series of weekly lactic acid peels to help remove some of the sundamage and allow for better penetration of whatever you eventually decide to use to lighten with ?

And hopefully you have now invested in a good sunblock and are more careful in the sun. This is very important if you intend on embarking on a lightening regime

I've never understood those peels. Can you briefly give me a detail explanation of the peelings and the process?

A Lactic acid peel is an alpha hydroxy acid, derived from sour milk and is designed as an exfoliant for the skin. The acid helps dissolve the glue like substance that binds the outermost surface skin cells together, so that old skin cells are sloughed off to reveal fresher skin underneath.

It comes in a number of strengths but I personally believe that for anyone just starting, that a strength of between 30 - 40 % is best. For some there is not much visible peeling and only micro peeling may be present, so the skin may look slightly flaky or dry as it exfoliates away. Some, possibly due to higher strengths used and the duration of the peel application, do see visible peeling. But the idea is that you are able to gradually remove areas of sun damaged skin and tougher areas and this then allows for better penetration of products then applied to the skin. You do have to practice very good sun care protection as your skin does become more sensitive to the sun, but the rewards of clearer, fresher and more even skin is worth it.

Ok and it the peel a long process? Like would I spend hours getting it done? Also, if I purchase one peel would that be enough for my entire body?

If you order it in a larger quantity. Such as Lotion Crafter [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] it at 88% for a large quantity and it can then be diluted to the recommended strength and used for the body. Usually starting off with once a week is best.

That name sounds very familiar but I doubt you'll get much lighting.

I would say exfoliating and moisturizing should help to even the skin and get a nice complaxion. If you want to lighten a few shades the peels sound plausible or you could try mq and/or hq along with ret a to help it penetrate the skin. Some of our member have gotten good results with Makari ut the prices are not cheap.

Whatever you use remember to use protection and avoid direct sun as much as possible. You might also want to try adding some vitamin C to help the process along.

So using the link you provided, if I purchase one bottle for $3.50, I could use it on my entire body?

I may have asked this before so sorry in advance. I have thought of using a peel and I know it isn't acid as in it'll burn my skin lol. I too wonder how would I mix the peel with water. How much of peel and water together to dilute it to a safer for strength for someone like myself who has never used one. I do I should stop using the hq and ret a a few days before and after using a peel right?

Thanks

The 88% Lactic Acid is soluble in water, alcoho and glycero, or that is what I thought.

I also thought you were not supposed to apply it directly onto the skin because it will burn.

Mini Her,

the quantity from lotioncrafters will last you for a good while and remember that you are also diluting it, so you will get a greater quantity. You just need enough solution to cover the area that you wish to peel. The best way to start is to do it on a small area, so you understand how much is needed and you get used to carrying out the process.

Alizee love,

when carrying out the peels it is advisable to stop Retin A usage a few days before and a few days after the peel.

Yes I mean no,


If you purchase a lactic acid at a percentage that is higher than you need,then you can dilute using disitilled water.

OK, I have another problem. How do I moisturize and what should I use? This RA causes my legs and arms to peel and look very dry. Should I apply moisturizing lotion before or after the lightening creams?
