Flawless skin, in the literal sense, means perfect skin, with no visible blemishes, unevenness in tone, or damage. Some people consider natural marks such as moles, freckles, and birthmarks to detract from flawless skin, while others believe that skin can be considered flawless as long as it is free of acne, sun damage, and other kinds of imperfections. There are a multitude of products geared toward producing flawless skin, both on the face and the rest of the body. Many skin care professionals agree that the most important thing a person can do for his or her skin is to always wear a high-SPF sunscreen when outdoors to avoid sun damage.

Generally, people with flawless skin either naturally do not have trouble with acne and blemishes or they have found a way of keeping the problem to an almost unnoticeable level. Various acne medications, cleansers, exfoliants, and a whole host of other products are aimed at getting rid of and preventing acne and other blemishes. These imperfections can include everything from blackheads and open, darkened pores to common pimples. Proper treatment of acne and blemishes also includes avoiding picking or popping the acne to avoid permanent damage such as scarring, which would make the pursuit of flawless skin that much harder. Also, it is important to avoid overly drying products, and to apply a good moisturizer on a regular basis so the skin does not take on a flaky, scaly appearance.

Some people who wish to lighten dark or uneven areas of skin turn to skin lighteners. These can be used to give the skin a brighter, more even look, or in an attempt to make freckles and other marks less visible. It is important to avoid skin bleaching products that contain harsh chemicals, as these can damage the skin and be a serious setback to achieving flawless skin. Other people, instead of skin lightening, turn to tanning to darken the skin and give it a more appealing glow. If flawless skin is the goal, however, it is best to use tanning lotions instead of tanning beds or sitting outside, as this can cause sun damage and potentially skin cancer.

If eliminating imperfections entirely is not feasible, some individuals find that covering up the imperfections with makeup can go a long way toward achieving the look of flawless skin. Not only can makeup conceal blemishes, but it can also even out skin tone, preventing a blotchy or discolored appearance. As with using acne medications, it is a good idea to use a moisturizing cream regularly when wearing makeup on a daily basis. That will make sure the skin stays moist and healthy and provides a healthy base on which to put the makeup.

@raynbow- Retinol is a fabulous ingredient for the skin, but it is important that you use a sunscreen when using it because it increases sensitivity to the sun. In addition, retinol creams work best when applied at night because it works best when not exposed to bright light for several hours.

If your goal is to have flawless skin, using a cream with retinol in it is a great way to achieve your goal. This ingredient is derived from vitamin a which helps to even out skin tone while treating blemishes and flaws.
