I hope that the information I provide will help people. I have had great success with products like this one. My skin is almost entirely dark (I am a very fair skinned woman, so most of you will probably see a lot of my fair skin in the photos here).
The first thing that you need to know is that you can't change the color of your skin by adding chemicals to your skin. You need to change the type of chemicals in your skin that make your skin dark. You can't lighten your skin, or make it lighter, by making any chemical that is used in the skin more light sensitive. If you're just looking for something to lighten your skin, you can go to any drug store or drugstore, or maybe you can even get one of those little boxes at the local supermarket that sell different skin lightening products. You can see for yourself. I bought my first product at the local grocery store. It's called "Ola Beauty Lightening Serum", and it is actually very inexpensive, around $10. It contains 0.4% of the best lightening ingredients that I have ever seen in a drug store. It is a liquid, so you have to pour it in and wait for it to go on.
