Porcelana must be applied on a freshly-washed face. If you’re using all three products, start by using the dark circle treatment, followed by the day or night cream. Gently pat the dark circle treatment on the eye area until fully absorbed. Follow this with the day cream, massaging it on the entire face and neck area. Although the product has sunscreen it in already, you may still apply a separate one as you wish. Wait for the products to dry before applying makeup. Same instructions apply for the night cream, except for the sunscreen part. Use the products regularly for best results.
Porcelana contains hydroquinone, which can produce some irritation especially on sensitive skin. It also makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, that’s why even though the day cream has sunscreen in it already, applying a separate sunscreen may also be beneficial for added protection. If using the cream causes you experience side effects, stop using it at once. And if the side effects persist, seek help from your dermatologist.
