White, porcelain skin is the holy grail for most beauty enthusiasts. It's the one thing a lot of girls from all over the world would wish to have been born with or somehow attain with the help of whitening products. Did you know though, that having baby smooth skin is actually better than having ivory colored skin? Yep, it's true! Healthy smooth skin can make any skin tone or color look extra good! Still don't believe us? Just take a look at the 5 different reasons why smooth is better than white and you be the judge!

1. It's not cool to blind people.

Sure it might be a little cool and fun to shock everyone with how white you are every time you enter the room but it's gonna get real old, fast.  Especially when you're meeting people who have been indoors all day long—they're definitely not going to appreciate your blinding white skin. You could totally avoid a lot of angry friends by opting to go with smoother skin.

2. White skin can get you killed.

Okay, it kind of sounds absurd and we don't want to seem dramatic or anything but have you heard of Snow White? Well, there you go! Her skin was white as snow, the Queen envied her so much that she had her killed! It's a good thing Prince Charming came to the rescue! Save yourself all that drama and just focus on getting baby smooth skin. We promise it's worth it!

3. White and dry skin is a deal breaker.

Sure, your crush may have finally asked you out on a date because he can't stop staring at your porcelain skin but once he tries to hold your hand, say good bye to Mr. Cutiepie because having dry skin is a major deal breaker for boys! You're going to need smooth skin so that he'll never let you go! You never know, he could just be the one!

4. You might just get lost in the background.

If you're guilty of wanting super white skin, you need to be prepared to disappear into the background. Especially when most spaces nowadays are painted white! Be proud of the skin you're in and highlight your natural beauty by taking care of your skin to make it extra smooth. That way, it will be hard not to notice you!

5. Smooth skin is easier to achieve and you'll feel great!

Trying to achieve white skin might just take you a whole decade! Move on and start your journey to healthy, super soft, smooth skin. It's a lot easier and faster to do and you'll be doing your skin and body a service too! This is because some whitening products can be harsh on the skin, while products that make skin smooth keep it hydrated and you can even look younger!
