How to use porcelana
Porcelana cream is used at night to fade skin discolourations. (face to face image by Melanie von Snarly from Fotolia.com)

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 discolourations caused by ageing, acne and sun damage; it also moisturises 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.
