Question by raye: How can I achieve clear porcelain skin?
I have a lot of dark spots on my skin and a ton of horrible tan lines I hate tanning, I am about jessica alba’s complexion when I am not tan, but I want a fairer clearer complexion. I am currently exfoliating 3x a week and using skincare with kojic acid and arbutin, and using lots of sunblock. I take collagen drinks and pomegranate extract and eat a healthy diet. Do I just need to be patient? Do you have any tips for me?

if you’re naturally tan, then there is no way you can achieve porcelain skin without causing serious harm to your body. I’m VERY pale, but have a lot of freckles and acne scars show up a lot worse on my skin because it’s so light, so I wash my face with lemon juice about once every week or two to bleach them out. Don’t do this if you have sensitive skin though, I have a fairly high pain tolerance and sometimes it can burn quite badly if you have even a small open sore on your face, it also dries your skin quite a bit so you should only leave it on for a little while (I have extremely oily skin so I put it on my face at night then wash it off in the morning)
I’ve also heard of washing your face with cream or something, I’m not sure if that works.
In the Victorian Era, women used to get bled so they could achieve a paler complexion, I wouldn’t recommend that, but you could follow some of the other things they did, cover yourself when you go outdoors and do your best to stay in the shade (they used a parasol, but I doubt you would be willing to do that)
Hope this helps~
