Alright so here I am, experiencing tingles all over my body, like iced tingles. Not very strong, just lightly, it actually feels nice and my skin feels tight and form. So why am I feeling this way?
Well.. About half an hour ago I just applied Mequinol and tretinion onto myself. Why? Because I live in a Western country that depicts beauty and youth with paler skin.
I made my preperation by mixing 100ml of Mequinol Crystals, 10 ml of Tretinion powder and I put in about half a bottle of glycerin (although im thinking maybe a full bottle would have been better, now). i added purified water to the rest up to 500ml. I blended it thoroughly, then I added another 500ml 30+ sunscreen. It's very hot here, and we are approaching summer, so I wanted to be protected. I chose to make it as a spray because it is easier to apply and I do suffer from chronic fatigue and therefore not motivated enough to apply a cream to my whole body.
Okay well I started by applying it to my legs, I didn't feel anything and I was wondering if I applied the right dosage. Then when I got to my genitals I felt a bit of a sting, I felt worried at first but then I thought I would leave it and see what happens. Then I did the rest of my body and when I got to my face, it felt like this high frequency icy burning sensation, especially around my lips (I tried to avoid them, but a bit got on the outer parts). Now I was starting to get worried, because this wa sa burning sensation unlike I have never felt before on my face, it felt like my face was burning with ice and it felt like it was a very high vibration burning. I decided to wait a few minute4s and if the burning didn't subside, I would wash it off.
Well it all subsided, apart from a sort of icy tingling sensation around my body. I wonder what is going on? Now to all the plastic surgeons here and dermatologists who read this, I can only expect you would recommend me to 'stop doing it' and 'see a dermatologist'. But im not interested at all. I've done my research and beleive me, I have done plenty to my face in the past and it all recovered. (the worst of them being accutane!). I want to look lighter and more beautiful, I want to stand out more and be noticed, and this is my way of doing it (that I can afford right now). boo-yeah!
Also think I should mention the substance had a light yellowy colour and usng it on the spray was a very good idea, it worked very well and was easy to spread and rub in. But I think more glycerin would have made it glide easier on my body.
My dosage was much too high. I only used it twice,...

Heres the deal, both these chemicals are not good for your skin in the long term. I don't care what anyone say's about their benefit's. Be careful and learn to love yourself the way you are, highlight your beautiful skin the way it is and give a big middle finger to anyone who does agree with you. If you go down this path, do it slow, do it smart.
I purchased the chemicals from a manufacturing company in China that I found on alibaba. They were very honest and offered me the best price. I also think what they gave me was the real deal and of good quality.
