    Do you still use lightening creams in summer?
    Hi
    Here in France the weather is very hot since last week and I was wondering if it useless or not to continue using lightening creams?I read that with lightening creams skin is more sensitive to UV so isn't it like the lightening cream will have no effects?
    I put sunscreen every morning before going outside and try as much I can to avoid sun but sometimes I have to walk and there is so much sun.maybe its psychological but it seems my skin has darken.
    Do you success in maintening your skin color in summer and also go outside?
    I can't stay home all the day that's the problem I think
    Give your advices
    Thanks

    It's always hot & humid here in Malaysia. Sometimes it can reach up to 37C. The average monthly temperature here is about 32C. Yet I can still use lightening cream with no problem at all!
    A few months ago, I went to spend my weekend at a beach and to my horror, I tanned horribly. I continue using my lightening cream and to my surprise I went back to my original tone within a week which is unexpected because it usually take me about a month or two!

    So, don't worry.

    Yes, I'm using DS. :)
    No, I didn't. Just make sure you're not in the sun for too long & you'll be fine.

    Has the peeling stopped, SugarBlush? That's if you did get any peeling. :)

    Yes, it has stopped.
    I have stopped using the cream. And I only use the soap when I feel like it. :D
