Fade Cream for Dark Skin Tones

Posted by Porcelana Staff on

Many people with dark skin tones are a bit wary about using a hydroquinone cream on their skin, fearing that the results will be too drastic and noticeable. However, a cream containing hydroquinone is actually the best solution for evening out skin tone for all skin types – even darker skin tones.

How Does Hydroquinone Work?

Hydroquinone is effective for fading dark spots because it decreases the formation of melanin in your body. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin its color, and dark skin produces more melanin than light skin. Hydroquinone is actually found naturally in the some of the foods we eat, including berries, coffee, and wheat.

Hydroquinone and Dark Skin

Hydroquinone is a powerful product that inhibits the enzyme that produces excessive pigmentation, and it’s proven to be effective on dark skin. Even though dark skin may sometimes seem like its immune to the harmful UV rays of the sun, it is not. It’s important to apply sunscreen whenever you go out in the sun, but especially while using hydroquinone products. This can also help prevent your skin from becoming ashy.

Best Fade Cream for Dark Skin

If you’re looking or the best fade cream for dark skin that you can get without a prescription, then look no further than Porcelana’s Night Skin Lightening Cream. It fades away darker patches of skin while you sleep and has 2% hydroquinone as an active ingredient.

This fade cream also contains extra moisturizers, including avocado oil, to nourish your skin with vitamins without feeling heavy or greasy. It has proven effective for liver spots, age spots, scars, and other types of discoloration that affect the skin.

When to Expect Results

Even though hydroquinone is effective, it does take some time to achieve the desired result. We recommend using our night cream along with Porcelana Day Skin Lightening Cream for the best overall treatment 24-hours a day.

Before using the cream extensively, try a small amount on a patch of skin to test for any potential irritations. If a day passes with no issues, apply fade cream to your problem spots and be patient. However, if you don’t see any results within three months, discontinue using the fade cream and consult a dermatologist for recommendations.
