As of October 2010, Porcelena — a brand of fade cream that is applied to your face at night — has been on the market for more than 40 years. The cream fades discolorations caused by aging, acne and sun damage; it also moisturizes the skin. Children younger than 12 shouldn’t use Porcelana unless directed by a doctor, and a sunscreen should be applied during the day while you use Porcelana since it can increase sensitivity to the sun.

Things You'll Need


Apply Porcelana Cream Before Bed

Wash your face with a facial wash or mild soap, warm water and a washcloth before you go to bed.

Pat your face dry with a towel.

Scoop a nickel-sized amount of Porcelana cream from the jar with your index finger.

Brush a thin, even layer of the cream on an area of your face that is discolored or has acne blemishes.

Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each area of your face that has discolorations or blemishes.

Go to sleep.

Morning Follow-Up

Wash your face with a facial wash or mild soap, warm water and a washcloth when you get up in the morning.

Squeeze three nickel-sized drops of moisturizing sunscreen onto your index finger.

Apply a thin, even layer of the sunscreen over your entire face. Squeeze out a couple more drops of sunscreen if you need more lotion to cover your face.

Repeat Steps 1 through 9 every night for three months or until the discolorations and blemishes fade.

Tips

  • If the discolorations haven’t faded after using Porcelana for three months, consult a dermatologist.
