the sunscren is excellent it never melted off my face in this effin tropical heat and it absorbs easily NO WHITE CAST. I bought the SPF 70 never saw the 110 (but i was in a BSS not a pharmacy)

Cetaphil- i made a Handful of "amlactin" with a few drops of the LA, last night and im not lying my legs are 15 % smoother (i have KP), the other leg (the control) i only used the cetaphil. Yes the mix is runny as hell like they say

Heart Midna and Sandy

Here's a Batch calculator for DIY product formulations


 




WOMAN, YOU PAID $18????

OH NO BOO. GET A REFUND AND BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

so my bold behind tried a TCA peel on my underarmsLOL

and its actually turning out fantastically

little areas are peeling now and the skin underneath looks like the rest of my skin toneClap

perfect armpits this summer ftw



Careful, hun. I don't peel there because it's a hotspot for post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

Sweat, heat, and friction and plus deodorants make it susceptible.

Baby those pits!

Oh I do!! But I've gotten good results from the peel..

Good, good! Glad to hear PIH has been avoided!

Man, I made the mistake of peeling my inner thigh... What the hell was I thinking? I got PIH and was mad!

But it's gone now thanks to exfoliation and vitamin C.

HELL no

The thing is, it's the inner thigh so it's going to be exposed to friction anyway thanks to being a bipedal creature. Ouch

It can be the friction of walking (thick thighs, yeeeeuh Cool) and it can also be the friction of clothes rubbing against my thighs from movement. Since I move a lot in my daily life, I didn't have much to win with this battle!

Thankfully, the PIH was not severe! I'm using kojic soap to lighten areas of my body along with this exfoliation-based regimen to help the parts of my body that have hyperpigmentation but won't do well with peels.

Yeah, PIH is exactly what it is- post inflammatory hyperpigmentation: a reaction to the skin being irritated and inflamed. I guess the body supplies extra melanin to the affected area to give it more UV protection.

Biology-wise, it's a nice feature to have! Cosmetically.. no thank you.
