I will start the milk bath Sunday for two weeks and hopefully I will see a difference in my skin tone....

I would think buttermilk would work even more effectively since it has more lactic acid. (Or I think it does)LOL

I live in the Caribbean and we have showers lol (don't judge us) can I just pour the milk on? Or should I use the yogurt as a paste. I'm wondering if i mix buttermilk and yogurt and paste it on how that will work.

I like the whole milk idea bc its not skin lightening, just brightening and removing the cells that make the skin appear dull, but it seems like a lot esp if u dont have a tub lol. Are there any soaps that work like the milk. I saw something about papaya and kojic acid soap, but kojic acid lightens skin by reducing the production of melanin. I dont want that for me, just something that helps with the hyperpigmentation and reveals new glowing skin. Any ideas for soap brands or recipes?

I'm having the same problem. I love my brown/dark skin and DO NOT want to lighten at all so finding anything over the counter is counterproductive because all of them have a lightening agent in them, like hydroquineiahughoa lol. I used to do the milk thing about two years and after awhile, my tub started to stink from the draining of the milk. It was horrid. Maybe because I didnt have good drainage. Ehh, w/e. It was too time consuming too. Having to sit in a bathtub. It felt like a chore LOL I like showers anyway.

I've been reading a blog by diaryofanegress. She's really pro-black, and thinks melanin is our God given right. IA with her. She makes all natural soaps at her home. She has a soap that she made out of tomatoes, and its said to give you an even skin tone. I think the Vitamin C in tomatoes is the thing that gives the even complexion. I remember way back when I read up on lightening products, tomato was listed. People use it as a face mask (kind of like when they put cucumbers on your eyelids). Anyways, it was only 5 bucks. All together $7-8 with shipping. So I bought one. I just ordered it a couple days ago. I will update here if I see any changes.

She also has an oatmeal, milk, and honey bar soap. Here's the link  http://www.etsy.com/shop/UrbanFireProducts - http://www.etsy.com/shop/UrbanFireProducts

OH! And for the girls that are natural with their hair, She also has an all natural shampoo bar and hair yogurt to help grow hair w/o using chemicals, and a beeswax hair thingy (sorry don't know the proper name lol) for braids and locs. I ordered those too. I will update in the natural hair section if those work for me. I feel like I'm on major advertisement mode for her LOL but Supporting a black business is a great thing to do, and when I emailed her asking if the tomato soap was going to take away my melanin, she was SO sweet and humble. Mind you, if the products don't work for me, I will give you an honest review Thumbs Up
