See guys... I need answers as in ASAP.You need to save my soul!
I have been trying to lighten my knuckles and toes for a while now but these darn toes and knucks won't obey!
Naturally,I have always had pretty dark knuckles.But as I lightened,they are kind of too obvious... not too bad though.So I have come here to ask for help.I want QUICK ACTION.I want to see results in like 10 days.
I have read some previous threads but... nah,didn't do much.I need 2010 answers!
Please don't tell me to use MELADERM-it works but its as slow as a snail.Lightened my knuckles like .01 shade per week!
Give me answers please-preferably, stuff I can buy online.
Thank you... and waiting!

Lol @ "the save my soul" part.

I don't know how 2010 you would consider this but when I had problems lightening my feet, as a strange as this may sound a Jamaican friend of mine told me to use the wrap method because it promotes absorption. And it really did work.

Since you're trying to lighten your knuckles and toes you'll need 4 plastic shopping bags, your choice of product, a pair of thick gloves and thick ankle socks. Before you go to sleep at night, apply the product to your hands and feet. Put each of your feet and each of your hands into a plastic bag. Put the ankle socks and gloves over the bags.

Not going to lie, the first night its extremely uncomfortable... but if you stick it out, you'll get results. I saw results in about 2 weeks.

@Yellowannabe
Thank you so very much 4 your 2010 quick response.I sure will try it as soon as I get the 2010 cream that I would use... still waitx...
U have saved half my soul... lol
Who wants to save the other half?

Yellowannabe
Mar 23, 2010, 09:53 PM
Lolz! No problem. And I'm sure you probably figured but remember to tie the bags on your feet and hands after you put on the shopping bags. And please keep me posted on your results. If I find anything less obscure, ill definitely let you know!

Good Luck!

And someone please save the other half of her soul! Hahaha.

Yellow, which lightener did you find most effective for the hands and feet area with the plastic bag technique? Thanks

Yellowannabe
Mar 25, 2010, 10:09 AM
To be honest with you, I only used a neoprosone and movate mix. I found out after the fact that these lighteners weren't safe, so I wouldn't tell u to use them. If you have a lightener that is working for the rest of your body, use the same on your hands and feet with the bag method. Using the plastic bags is supposed to just increases that area's rate of absorption. So I'm sure whatever you're currently using should be fine

And when the temptation arises to take it off, fight it! Lol.
Also, upon waking up... try to leave the bags on as long as humanly possible.

Good Luck!

I have tried this method before, the feet I can kind of handle but covering the hands is very annoying and YES it is so tempting to take it off.

Mar 26, 2010, 01:01 PM
Please people don't try this method on your face! It will literally 'take your soul'! Lol jokes aside, I'm actually waiting to save up to get a holy grail whitening cream and supplement, but in the mean time you can mix l-glutathion powder from the capsules ( powdered) with vitamin c powder mix it with a pinch of black pepper which acts like a penetration enhancer mix all this in rosehip oil or something to give it emulsification, perhaps your usual cream, and then you can wrap your hands in clingfilm, like you would as a body wrap.. let me know how you get on with it...

@Yellowannabe lol! I know, it wouldn't be a pretty site! Yes let me know how you get on with the glut+vit c cling film wrap method? I'm trying it on my feet today ( as it's the weekend) and will walk around the house with feet tied in cling film! Lol

Hey,
Yellowannabe's regime of plastic bag is working quite well for my knuckles.Now to my body... I used So White of Fair and White for a year with the soap and serum.At present,I am using Lait 90 of HT26 and its carrot oil.But 3 days ago,I mixed it with bearburry,arbutin and kojic acid.I must say its working well.I can already tell.

Violaename

Hi Violaname, thanks for responding. I was wondering how the So White smell. Does it smelll nice and feminine and what are the ingredients? I'm alwayz worried some creams have mercury or steroids. I'm not so good at making my creams from scratch. Thankz once again

Violaename
Apr 4, 2010, 11:21 AM
@darcskin...
Hmm... the smell is awesome!
Totally feminine.Its pink and everything about it smells so sweet.I can assure you on that.Each time I used it,my room smelt so sweet... and soft.The soap is just excellent.
No.It has no Mercury and no steroids in it. They call the active ingredient in it ''White up"... I don't know what its made of... I guess Golden_Girl should know something about it.She is good with ingredient matters.But I know it is hydroquinone,mercury and steroid free.
Oh... you are most welcome!

darcskin
Apr 4, 2010, 11:38 AM
Oh yeah@ violaname? Thankz a whole bunch. But y did u change to Lait90? Was the so white not working too well? And how does the Lait90 smell - before N after uve added the extra ingredients. Sorry for d many questions,

Violaename
Apr 4, 2010, 12:01 PM
@darcskin,
That's okay... I love to answer when I can.
I really can't give a good reason for changing... It was great on me.But I wanted to stop it for a while,then come back to it later.I will still get back to it.Its one of those lotions on my MUST USE list.That is to say,I experiment others but stay faithful to them. Lait 90... comparing it to So white,its night and day.It doesn't smell bad per say but its not the kind of smell you will like to sniff.
Just in case you want to know my MUST USE list:
*Makari(When I want to speed up getting fair,I use it.In 18days,I am done.Its expensive.Thats one reason why it is in this list.If not,it would be my spouse)
*So White
*Clear Tone-mix with F&W lightening gel(Fear it a little because it has hq 2%,but... all the same)
Yes... since 2007,I have used these lotions most often.And I realised that each time I stopped,used something else and came back to use it,it performed really well.
I am still making a "survey" and will add more to my list if I find. I am trying ti figure out what ingredient in makari makes me so fair... I think it's the bearberry... and the Arbutin.The only way to find out is with this lotion I am using now...

I don't know if they improved the formula or not.My first encounter with it was in November 2008.Since then,I have been using it from time to time.used it this last February ans am still planning on using it again to step up a little more.

I'm going to try did F&W body milk to see if it works... and if it does work I will stop using bio claire on my body...

Girl... Lait 90 really didn't do a thing for me.Just made me glow a little.In the beginning,I thought it was working... but nah.
I later mixed arbutin and bearburry in the lotion.thats when it made some sense.The smell... hmm.Like toothpaste and something else.

I am now with F&W exclusive.I am enjoying every bit of it!!
For lotions that I have used so far that really work,you have
Makari,F&W,So White,Maxi Tone of F&W... apparently,I dangle a lot around F&W products.I personally like them a lot.

Girl... F$W works well for me!
When I began,I put my foot into the bag and tied around my ankle.Then later... my feet were the way I wanted them to be... my toes got fairer too... but they still needed lightening.So I tie them all together half way... You MUST see results!

Yes.I mix the lotion and serum in my hands and rub on my feet very well morning and evening.Then I use 55h+ on my toes.I wrap for as long as I am at home.Meaning if I am home for 24h,da plastic will be on... then off when I want to shower.

Thanks for answering my questions trust me I really appreciate it because a lot of people at my uni ask me why my nuckles are so blak in comparison to da rest of my body even my aunts ask me aswel its so embarrasin.

You are welcome girl.
I use the strong bleaching cream in the tube.
This knuckle issue is a hard thing to crack.
Some people actaully have pretty dark knuckles.But when you use lightening creams... it just highlights it in a way... It can be very frustrating and it takes a lot of time to treat.
I forgot to tell you... I use a glycolic acid peel from time to time.It help exfoliate the skin faster.

I could not see it...
But what I do is apply my acid and wash it off after like 3 minutes... but for the face... I leave it for 60secs!not more... the skin on the face and that of the toes is totally different!
