IrishArmyMom,

Age spots, sunspots, liver spots, whatever. They are caused by life. And the sun.

Do you have them on your tummy? My guess is that you don't. This is why they are called sun spots, UV damage will do it. I have lots of them on my arms and hands because of damage by lab chemicals and liquid nitrogen burns.

I hate breakouts, but after "meeting" all of you guys, I sure am grateful that I don't have rosacea. Sounds like a tough condition. At least I can experiment as much as I want to on my skin.

Newbie here...I'm 52 yrs old w/combo skin and I've been using the Skin Lightning kit for about 3 months and I don't see a difference. I have melasma on my chin, upper lips & cheeks. I'm thinking of mixing Sea Kelp cream w/Azeloyl Glycine, Arbutin, Betulinic Acid & Niacimide altogether in the cream. Is this a good idea?  Otherwise, I'm getting desperate enough to try Cosmelan at the dermatologist's office.  Please, I need your advice.

If the skin brightening cream did not do it, I don't think your formula will.

If you skin is white (i.e. non-Latino, non-Black American) you could try a TCA peel. [Latino and B A skins can respond with hyperpigmentation, this is why I ask]. After the TCA peel, follow with anti-age and skin lightening cream.

Hi,

Is the Lemon Bioferment good to mix in the Skin Brightening cream or is it overkill?

I would use it on alternate days. The lemon bioferment will penetrate better after a shower.

Hi,

1.  When you mentioned to use it after the shower...do I use it as a cream or H2O solution...or do I just put the lemon bioferment in the skin brightening cream as I had originally thought? 

You see, I already use the ascorbic acid daily after I wash my face with the salysic wash and thereafter, I use the let's make collagen, Chas, skin brightening cream, uv, etc....

2.  Would this be an overkill?  If I use the Ascorbic Acid then can I use the lemon bioferment?

3.  if yes then how exactly?

Thank you Hannah for taking the time to answer these questions.

Lilian

Thank you.

My plastic surgeon used a weak acid solution to burn off the age spots on the back of my hands.  Very successful - now all I have to do is keep them protected with sunscreen and use the corrective cream (SAS) at night.
