Fair skin is typically very light on the spectrum of skin tones due to the lack of melanin in the skin. Although fair skin is typically very light in color, it can have varying undertones, from olive pink, peach, to golden hues. However, one of the biggest concerns for those with fair skin is how to protect it, since it is the most prone to sun damage, aging and wrinkling. A lack of melanocytes, cells that produce skin pigment, is what gives fair skin it’s alabaster hue.
When it comes to cleansing and treating fair skin, there is virtually no difference when compared to darker skin complexions, except that fair skin may need more protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays that are caused by the sun and it is also more prone susceptible to sensitivities from environmental damage that can also lead to redness and visible marks due to irritations. However, like all skin tones, fair skin needs proper hydration and protection to help give it a beautiful glow. However, if you desire a more even porcelain-like complexion, here are some tips to keep your fair skin in tip-top shape.
Keep Sunlight to a Minimum
Although people with fair skin can have an adverse reaction to too much sunlight, a little is actually good, as it creates vitamin D within the body, which also helps absorb calcium. However, too much exposure can lead to very harsh sunburns, resulting in peeling, rashes, boils and other skin-damaging effects. For this reason, you don’t have to banish the sun altogether, but protective clothing, such as a hat and light fabric will help keep your skin looking beautiful. Most importantly, sunscreen should always be used when outside for prolonged periods of time. Using at least an SPF 30-50 is ideal and consistency is key. Melafadin Day Protection helps keep your skin tone balanced and protects against bronzing and flecks caused by the sun.
Everyone gets redness from time to time, but since fair skin is so light, it is more visible than it’s darker counterparts. For this reason, redness from irritations, burns and conditions such as acne are more visible than on darker skin. When skin turns red, blood rushes to the affected area, which causes the appearance of redness or pinkness within the skin. For many, this can be an unsightly side effect. However, with the use of certain products that help to protect and conceal the skin, redness can easily be concealed as your skin heals. Melafadin Cleansing Powder reduces the appearance of redness and blemishes by incorporating vitamin C and titanium dioxide with brightens the skin. Soothing and calming products, such as Janssen Cosmetics Mild Cleansing Cream and De-Stress Fluid also helps to calm down redness from over stressed fair skin.
Hydration for fair skin can mean the difference between skin that is chalky and skin that is luminescent. While hydration is important for everyone, it is important to utilize the right moisturizer to accommodate your skin type. If your skin is dry, a hydrating formula, such as Day Vitalizer gives the right balance to skin while holding in much needed moisture. For oilier skin types, AHA Face Cream refines and rejuvenates the skin without being too occlusive. Light skin is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles, so giving it the moisture that it needs will help plump wrinkles and even out dark marks that make give it a dull appearance.

Instead, utilize those that add luster to the skin to make it come alive.
Alleviate Under Eye Circle
Under eye circles are usually an indication that you aren’t getting enough sleep. When we are stressed, this can also cause your overall appearance to look dull and more pale. Sometimes these conditions can be a cause of other underlying issues and sometimes they can be hereditary. At any rate, if you would like your skin to appear more supple, eye creams are necessary as they can help brighten the overall look of your face.
