Hi guys. So I want to answer some questions, so this is the question, she says, “i saw your video on youtube. I’m sick of walking around with ugly legs; please send me info of exactly what helped you.
I never wore skirts, shorts or dress in my adult life. Please do I need to get help professionally? Here are some pictures, on the picture they don’t look so bad but it’s horrible in person.” so i’m going to guess that she’s doing hyper pigmentation, I looked at the pictures and I couldn’t really see… the pictures weren’t clear but I just showed this particular question because I want to address how to get rid of dark spots on legs because I feel like a lot of people ask me questions about that topic.
So there ar many ways to treat dark spots on your legs, yes your first port of call, if you are able to seek professional help do that, if you’re able to afford a dermatologist do that but I know for some people and for some people they don’t have access to a dermatologist and that’s why I recommend alternatives for you, ok? If you were me this is what I would do, there are three ways to approach treating dark spots on legs.
The first one if I were in your shoes i would do tretinoin 0.1%, preferably the gel and 5% hydroquinone. now I know these products are kind of hard, but I know you need a pharmacist sell them online, i’ll to leave the link below for you.
The second route that I will go which i’ve also made a video on is extreme glow line. That’s not something knowing what I know now I wouldn’t go that route but I know for some people it may work better for them but for me, it worked for me but I noticed that it pretty much lightened up my skin, other parts of my skin as well and it wasn’t even the lightening that was my problem, it was that it would make my skin almost like red.
I think I read the ingredients and they weren’t really harsh but sometimes manufacturers are not really honest with what they’ve put in their products, ok? So that’s one thing i’m hesitant about, just the fact that extreme glow line really lightened, it lightened up the dark spots which is good but at the same time I think it gave me as well which I don’t appreciate, and i know people use the cream just to lighten up their skin, i’m not one to tell you what to do but i’ll be really careful, ok? The third route I will go is getting nadinola or porcelana, anyone with the higher hydroquinone percentage.
You can get it from wal-mart, from drug stores, you can get it online from amazon and what i’ll do is i’ll mix that, i’ll use that in conjunction with tretinoin.
If i’m not able to get to tretinoin i’ll get a chemical peel online, preferably lactic acid, and if you’re someone who hasn’t done this before then you have to be really careful, start with a smaller percentage maybe like 15-20 and then work your way up, ok? Don’t just go all the way 90 because it will burn you, even if doesn’t hurt you at first it will burn you later on, that’s a side effect, I have experienced it, you’ve guys have seen my legs, you saw what it did to me.
So if you’re wanting to get rid of dark spots on your legs those are three things you should consider. First one is 0.1% tretinoin and hydroquinone, ok? Use that.
In 12 weeks you’ll see results, I read this in a book and when I visited my dermatologist the first time he recommended I think tretinoin gel 0.025 and I think about 4% hydroquinone and then we kind of worked our way up from there. the second one we talked about getting like a skin lightening cream pretty much, for example extreme glow, that cream is really strong, it works really fast but i’ll also be really careful or cautious.
Once you feel like your spots have been lightened stop using that product because it really lightens up your skin and it’s not even the lightening that’s the problem it’s the fact that it gives you a red , that’s a dead giveaway for a skin bleacher and you don’t want that.
Third one is nadinola. If you’re able to get to wal-mart, amazon. Com it’s really cheap, ok? The only thing is that nadinola contains 3% hydroquinone which is not as effective as 4% or 5% hydroquinone but it’s somewhere you can start from.
If you are consistent you are bound to see results, and imagine mixing that with tretinoin. Like you guys know, tretinoin causes exfoliation as well prevents pigmented melanin from forming, ok? So it accelerates the cell in the epidermis thereby leaving you with new skin cells that are less pigmented.
Alright, hope that makes sense? If you’re not able to get to tretinoin another alternative to tretinoin will be like a chemical peel.
If you have further questions, I don’t like making my videos really long, super long because I lose you guys but if you have questions concerning any three of these routes feel free to leave them below, feel free to ask me, email me, whatever, instagram me, tweet me, whatever.
That’s why we have social media. Alright guys, I hope this have been helpful. to you that sent me this question I saw your email, I looked at your pictures and I know that if you apply these suggestions, you don’t have to they’re just suggestions i’m sure that you’ll see results in about 3 months, ok? 12 weeks to 3 months.
