Skin Lightening Before and After: Skin Care Tips
If you’re wondering whether fade cream products really work, the proof lies in the “before and after.” At Porcelana, we focus on fading blemishes and dark spots away to even out your skin tone and give you a fresh and beautiful complexion. Skin lightening isn’t about changing your appearance or conforming to someone else’s standards; it’s about loving the skin you’re in and helping it be as beautiful as you are on the inside.
To boost the effectiveness of the face cream products you’re using, let’s review a few tips to keep in mind before, during, and after you use them.
Skincare Tips before Using Fade Cream
It’s always a good idea to discuss your skincare concerns with a trusted dermatologist before starting any new treatment program to get a professional opinion. Many fade creams, including Porcelana Day Cream and Porcelana Night Cream, are available without a prescription and are a convenient and affordable way to even out your skin tone.
You may want to choose a fade cream based on your skin type and the season. Some creams are better suited for oily skin, dry skin, hot weather, and cold weather.
Test a new cream on a patch of skin to make sure you don’t experience any irritations before applying it liberally on your problem areas. You may want to apply a thin layer of moisturizing face lotion or oil to your face before applying fade cream to prevent it from getting into your eyes. Lotions that contain vitamin E, aloe vera, olive oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil are good options.
Skincare Tips while Using Fade Cream
Most people who use our fade creams will see results within three months. The lighter your skin, the quicker you should see spots and discolorations fading away. However, darker skin tones may require a longer application period.
Be patient while using fade cream, because the results will be better when they happen gradually. Lightening the skin quickly can cause irritations and burning sensations that are very unpleasant. If using a day fade cream, you can apply makeup over it without a heavy or greasy feeling.
Skincare Tips after Using Fade Cream
After you start seeing results, you may want to slowly reduce your application of the fade cream. You can get a lightening “touch up” by applying the fade cream twice a month to maintain your new even skin tone. Clean, moisturize, and exfoliate your skin regularly to scrub away dead skin cells and allow healthy new skin cells to grow.
Once you have completed your fade cream regimen and achieved the desired results, it’s still important to pamper those areas of skin. After dark spots have faded, you should wear sunscreen every day to prevent them from getting darker again. Exposing your skin to the sun is a surefire way to undo weeks and months of progress.
There are also some all-natural ways that you can maintain the health and tone of your skin once your fade cream has produced results and while you’re just doing occasional touch ups. These are some natural ingredients that you eat and apply to your skin to promote beauty and health:
- Aloe vera
- Raw potatoes
- Coconut water
- Green tea
