More and more people are becoming aware of the risks due to sun exposure. And with this knowledge, a lot of individuals are ready to embrace being fair skinned. Fair skin equates to having a porcelain complexion. However, naturally pale skin is often associated with having a red, blotchy, spotted and freckled skin. In fact, people who have fair skin are more likely to develop skin damage and discoloration. But Cosmopolitan Magazine states that individuals with this skin type are more responsive to beauty remedies. So if you want to maintain a flawless, fair skin, here are some tips that you have to keep in mind.
Beauty Tip 1: Keep Skin Away From Sun Damage
Sun damage is a common concern for people with fair skin. This results to dark spots, skin discoloration and uneven skin tone as stated by the beauty magazine, Marie Claire. In order to protect your skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun, apply sunblock with SPF 30 or above before going outdoors. Do this every day without fail; even when the weather is cool or the sky is cloudy. Meanwhile, apply a cream with alpha hydroxy acid or retinol during the night. This will assist in exfoliating your skin thus doing away with the dark skin tone caused by sun damage and making your skin appear more radiant.
Beauty Tip 2: Use Products which are Gentle on the Skin
According to the Cosmopolitan Magazine, fair skin is more likely to be very sensitive compared to darker skin tone. This skin type is prone to irritation and redness making the skin to appear flushed. Some products you are using may have chemicals which make your skin react negatively and become irritated. Therefore, you should use skin care products specifically designed for sensitive skin which are free from color or fragrance. When your skin becomes irritated, treat it with a cream that has anti-inflammatory ingredients such as chamomile. This is suggested by the Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Beauty Tip 3: Find a Remedy for Discoloration
Fair skin oftentimes appears reddish because of broken blood vessels on the face, most commonly on the nose. This is explained by Valerie Monroe who is the beauty editor of O, The Oprah Magazine. Noticeable spots become more vivid as the fair skin becomes more irritated. In order to treat this, Monroe recommends undergoing at least one to two sessions of laser treatment. Kinds of laser treatments for the elimination of broken blood vessels are KTP or Potassium Titanyl-Phosphate Laser Treatment, Pulsed-Dye Laser Treatment and Diode Laser Treatment. After the suggested sessions, broken blood vessels will become less visible. As a result you fair skin will have porcelain-like appearance.
Now, you can do away with bronzers and tanners. Finally, you can enjoy having a fair skin without having to worry if it is very reddish and full of dark spots. Caring for your fair skin is easy; just follow the beauty tips mentioned above to get a healthy and flawless skin that glows.
