Porcelana Still Around As Cheap Fade Cream That Really Works
Porcelana. The skin lightening cream has been around for years and years. And it has stood the test of time. Maybe your great-grandmother had a jar on her nightstand. Maybe you remember the old television commercials. We have now been noticing new ads for Porcelana in top fashion and beauty magazines.
Does Porcelana really work? Does it effectively fade away dark spots and age spots and other minor skin imperfections like uneven skin tone?
Yes. Dermatologists say that it is a gentle skin fading cream, but it is important to remember, that Porcelana does contain 2% hydroquinone. And hydroquinone is a drug that can be incorporated into many types of creams and lotions to fade discolorations in the skin.
For years, the best and seemingly only way to get rid of uneven skin tone, or hyperpigmentation, has been through a prescription of 4% hydroquinone. Some people have been afraid of using the prescription for extended periods of time, in fear of possibly developing cancer.
But skin experts say that hydroquinone is safe at these low concentrations.
Porcelana takes time to gently fade age spots, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. You must be patient and in the long haul, for the cream to show decent results---at least 3 months. You can pick up a small 3 oz. jar of Porcelana for less than $10 at your local drugstore. We found it for $6. And it now comes in two creams---one for nighttime, the other for daytime.
It's safe to use daily, although once a day is sufficient. It has a scent some people don't like, but it's not that bad. The Porcelana Nighttime consistency is creamy and thick. All you need to do, is apply a thin layer to the spots you want to target. And do not use Porcelana around the eyes. It can be irritating.
For less than $10, we think Porcelana is worth the purchase, and worth the patience needed. to see some good results.
Fade away, blasted spots!
