Hello Everyone :)
I've come here looking for SERIOUS help / advice / tips on what I can do to effectively lighten my dark knuckles and toes. I've used Carolight (oil, tube + jar mix) with an extra tube of HQ 4% cream mixed in and this has REALLY lightened my body BUT my hands and my feet are seriously dark compared to them and this is really embarrassing for me.
A little history about my feet: I had REALLY pretty feet as a child (until maybe age 10) and then I was sent to live with my aunt who spent her money on alcohol instead of shoes / food for me, so as a result I had to wear shoes that were too small for me for YEARS - this resulted in my toes getting darker as they rubbed against the shoes and corns developing on some of my toes. Since then, I have always been VERY self conscious of my feet. I used to try to put makeup (foundation / concealer) on my feet during summer time but would always end up with a dry / cakey look that highlighted the issue even more. I cant tell or show my friends my feet and this problem has stopped me from even having a serious relationship because I don't want to be embarrassed or ashamed in front of a guy if he sees my feet.
Im tired of living in fear of being embarrassed and having low self esteem because of this and would really appreciate any help / advice / tips on what I can use to get my feet & knuckles from Alek Wek's beautiful color to match the rest of my body (Im currently MAC NC45 - which is like a Meagan Goode complexion)
