Hi, i have been using hydroquinone . i wantto take a break. please advise me with some other skin lightening agent?

I suggest nothing: In the dominent culture of the United States, which is what most of the world usually follows, pressuring someone to change their natural skin color is considered to be the height of backwardness and ignorance. That stuff is likely to disfigure you, and to what purpose? Anyone worth knowing / loving doesn't care at all about your skin tone, and workplace discrimination is utterly illegal. ...Read more

Any oils/agents that help desensitise penis skin so ejaculation is considerably delayed/last longer?

Not a good idea: Permanent desensitization of the skin is not a good idea. You may use condoms that contain a local anesthetic which may help in lasting longer. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
