Even Your Skin Tone If You Want by whiteroses(f): 11:27am On Oct 25, 2011
Whoever is dark skinned should remain dark as God created you, this is for brown to light skinned people with uneven skin tone that aims to even dark spots to match their natural color.
Let me clear the air first I'm not advising anybody to go and buy Sivoclear or J&J and bleach their precious skin off. Bleaching creams contain a vast amount of hydroquinone, most will say 2% on the bottle to pass immigration rule they are unreasonable and dangerous.
          However, I see people with bad skin and they are not doing anything to correct it either because they are afraid of being judged or don't know how to solve this problem, when your neck looks discolored or the sides of your face has turned dark due to pimples please do not ignore it and find a solution. Yes be black and proud but as a lady if you have an uneven skin tone you can choose to get rid of those ugly marks. Society has confused us with numerous bleaching creams everywhere that we can't see what is good and just assume everything is bad.
   
      Personally I use a cream that has evened my dark scars and I love it, it contains a natural brightening plant extract, it has no hydroquinone or any form of chemical and it smells lovely. My discolored neck and the sides of my face has cleared up, my legs are glowing and it took over three months to notice a slight difference but today I let my guy stare at my skin unlike when I used to cover them up but that's another story lol. That is the difference between bleaching your skin and getting rid of an uneven skin tone.

          Other ways of getting rid of uneven skin tone is bathing with dudu osun and creaming with pure shea butter you'll get same result but it will take up to a year.  You are wasting your time if you go to an afro shop and buy fade cream and think you wants to get even it'll bleach your skin eventually. I'm talking about lotions that will improve your skin conditions you will know when you see them like Mama lotion cosmetics, godiva and Clear N smooth inc. have good creams but beware they also have bleaching range just go through their products and you'll know what is good.

You start bleaching your skin if your product contains hydroquinone or any chemical I don't care if it's 0.5%, I am just clarifyin to some ladies out there with bad skin conditions but doesn't understand that it is ok to have a clear skin. You dont have to look yellow to have a healthy skin it's all about the even skin tone and looking healthy that's my goal
In rare cases like mask of pregnancy or very stubborn discoloration you can use product containing papaya extract, kojic acid and licorice extracts. All botanicals !
I'm open to suggestions and advice, thanks

Pure shea and cocoa butter is good but Palmers formula are so thick and really shouldn't be applied on the face because its heavy and will clog your skin so you get spots. Also, it will ruin your make up cos it will start getting really oily later on your face. Look for pure shea butter aka ori its quite popular or light shea butter lotion like jergens, they do a light formula

I din't say don't use cocoa butter I just don't like the Palmers version because it's thick and shouldn't be applied on the face as it is heavy and main cause of spots but good for the body.

Yeah shea butter works wonders it just takes long and it sort of goes well with dudu osun

If you dont like the smell, Jergens shea butter is the closets product to the raw shea butter cos one bottle would contain 95% pure shea butter but still keep the raw shea at hand.
aaliya1234:

O great, but I am having one single problem with me, My skin always used to look very tacky tacky. sad What should I do please help. 
Whoever has a really dull skin should do a body scrub once a week when you are not going out or before bedtime till you notice fresh soft skin. The scrub mixture would be 2 Parts Salt or Sugar + 1 Part Beauty or essential Oil then apply shea butter or any other botanical lotion after you rinse your body. If you can't be bothered with a body scrub solution just buy one from local store.

Yeah i got you very well. But i will like to ask if the combination of Shear butter and Honey work well too Am thinking of making a lotion with it.

Secondly concerning the Body Scrub, Can Salt+Olive Oil+Shear Butter works too

Thanks for all your Effort, Thumbs Up

Hiya,

Does anyone know where, or whom to go to for halawa waxing? There must be someone who knows of women doing this in various neighbourhoods in Lagos.
Ta!

Sunburn can be very hard to clear,but firs, I will I advise you get yourself a sunscreen lotion with at least spf 35. You need to Start applying this on your skin 20mins before you step into the sun. If you can,wear a wide brimmed hat to shade your face from the sun so u don't keep getting burnt over and over again.
A blend of pawpaw,honey and shea butter works great for sunburn. Just dice some fresh pawpaw into your food preocessor,add a table spoonfull of honey and blend away! Heat your shea butter gently till it melts. Do not fry the sheabutter. Add to the pawpaw-honey blend. It will even out your skin tone without any side effects.
Apples works great as well. Just slice one into smaller parts and rub all over your skin.
This recipe worked for me. My skin didn't only even out,but it glows as well.
I hope it works for ya!
