I did a Salt Soak (Epsom Salt) for 17 mins. That was torture, I am strictly a shower person.

I spent most of yesterday looking up a good process for making, and properly using Lactic Acid Lotion.

I will get some Amlactin Lotion today from Costco to try it out before investing time, money, and hope on a DIY. If the Amlactin works well, and I have no issues with 12% Lactic Acid, then it's on to DIY.

I just want to be rid of this Permatan

I had dark spots from acne on my face and I used Clear Essence Medicated Fade cream to lighten them. I now use the cream on my elbows, knees etc. The important thing when using any lightener is to use sunscreen as well so that you don't redarken the area! I like CE's My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15. Its super thick and velvety. Hope that helps. www.clearessence.com

Try mixing some vitamin E oil in with your usual body lotion. Apparently D'alpha vitamin e oil is best as its natural. It's more expensive than the Dl'alpha vitamin e oil which is synthetic, but the D'alpha is much more effective so best if you want faster results.

So I'll be looking to get the oil WITHOUT the letter L after the D in D'alpha when I next buy vitamin e oil.

So I've found an acid peel that might work for the entire body. Its called Maxi peel, and it evens and brightens skin by removing the top dull layer of skin. There is a girl on you tube who used it. I found out she was on a skin lightening journey so she used like bleaches and stuff, but I'm not into that at all. But this is like a fast, non painful exfoliator, that gets rid of hyper pigmentation and reveals newer younger looking skin faster then a milk bath would. You actually peel all over, but from all the reviews i've read it does not hurt, just looks weird  during the shedding phase lol. It's kinda like green peeling oil if anyone has ever tried that. I plan to use it once on my entire body and once every 2 months or so on my hyper-pigmented areas like knees and elbows. To maintain I plan to use my shea butter olive oil mix to moisturize bc it does wonders for keeping my skin hydrated and glowy and to do milk baths. I'll let u know how it goes.

I know for smooth skin I have been using Franks Coffee Rub which works after first use but how can I use milk in the shower? I don't have time for baths but if I buy powdered milk can I make that into a mask or some type of paste for my body. Looking more to use this for my face then body as I don't have dark marks but discoloration in my skin

Drink lots of water. Water is responsible for cleansing skin from the inside out and preventing wrinkles. Keeping our body well hydrated will keep our skin looking plump and fresh. Exercise regularly. Working out doesn't just affect your size and weight, but helps to generate new skin cells which keeps your complexion even and young.
