Beauty trends come and go, but the trend to have that flawlessly perfect skin could never go out of vogue! People with flawless, evenly-toned skin are said to have a porcelain skin tone. Porcelain skin is simple, unblemished, unflawed skin, irrespective of the color. Often to address someone looking beautiful, people say ‘You looking like a doll!’ By doll, they mean porcelain doll (china doll), which is made of bisque porcelain, and has either a stark white, or creamy white complexion. This skin tone is popularly seen in Asian women, especially Korean.
We get your obsession to acquire porcelain skin. But before that, consider this to-do list:
1. Take some time outta your busy schedule, and keenly understand your skin type. You could visit a dermatologist or a professional skin care clinic to get your skin evaluated.
2. Go for skin products that are meant specifically to reduce blemishes and dark spots.
3. Keep these skin care products handy―a deep cleanser, a moisturizer, and an age-defying serum. Use them on a regular basis to get the much-desired porcelain skin.
Methods to Get a Porcelain Skin Tone
Daily Care Method
It is important to protect your skin and keep it clean, which demands for regular cleansing and daily care considerations.
Preventing Sun Damage
► To have a skin that is free of blemishes and freckles, we often think of facials masks and makeup, but don’t realize that sunblock has a major contribution to having porcelain skin. It is essential to apply sunscreen before stepping outta home. This will protect your skin from sunburns, wrinkles, and also early-aging!
► Find a broad-spectrum sunblock ’cause it protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Factually speaking, Korean cosmetics generally start at SPF 25/PA++, so it is recommended that you go for the one that is greater than SPF 25.
► Apply sunblock not just on your face, but on ears, neck, and all the parts that get an exposure to sunlight.
► Again, exuviating off dead skin cells will give rise to fresh, new radiant skin.
► Fetch a good exfoliating cleanser or a scrub, and exfoliate your skin twice a week.
► You can also use natural exfoliants like sugar. All you have to do is take 2 tbsp.of sugar, add a drop or two of water to it. Lightly mix it; you’ll notice the crystals on your fingertips. Gently, scrub your skin with it. Keep for 10 minutes, wash off with warm water and pat dry.
► Moisturizing is really important to keep the skin hydrated.
► Select the right moisturizer, the one that suits your skin type. Like for oily skin, choose the one that provides moisture control; for dry skin, go for the one that says balm/moisturizer!
► A good practice would be to apply moisturizer every night before going to bed.
