What is Porcelain Skin

Porcelain skin is clear, blemish-free, luminous, smooth,even-toned, and flawless skin and is independent of your skin tone. In traditional terms, fair skin or light skin with a slight shade of pink or yellow undertones and almost translucent-looking skin is called Porcelain skin.   There are two definitions of porcelain skin.

1.) In the first definition Porcelain actually refers to ceramic porcelain and how ceramic clay is heated and turns into Porcelain after cooling and this porcelain has a translucent, perfect, and flawless quality about it. Similarly, anyone with porcelain skin has smooth, even-toned, perfect skin irrespective of skin tone and complexion.

2) In the second definition which has been popularized by beauty brands and amplified by Instagram influencers and in this porcelain skin refers to white translucent skin similar to that of porcelain after it has cooled down. This usually refers to a person who has a skin tone that is very light and has more pink than yellow undertones in the skin so that they appear even lighter.

Overall porcelain skin can refer to those who have translucent skin and are pale and also those who have almost see-through skin with sometimes even their veins showing up. Porcelain skin has 95% pink and 5% yellow undertones and is considered to be the whitest kind of skin in terms of complexion sometimes even compared with having a doll like skin. Take care not to confuse porcelain skin with fair skin.

Porcelain Skin vs Fair Skin

Most people get confused between porcelain skin and fair skin but they are not the same. Both fair and porcelain skin refers to those having skin tones that are lighter but everyone having fair skin doesn’t have perfect, clear, and smooth skin without any blemishes which is the definition of porcelain skin. Also, fair-skinned people have skin that has more yellow and lesser pink as a base and have a paler or lighter complexion while porcelain skin has more pink than the yellow base. Porcelain skin and fair skin both are lighter skin but fair skin has a warmer tone while porcelain skin is more translucent.
