More Information: It's hard to know without more information. Is this something you've always had? Or is it new? Does it itch? Is it everywhere? Or only in certain places. You could be experiencing dry skin which may appear as you described above. Also if you've been sunburned recently and are shedding skin which appears white and translucent. Try using gentle moisturizers to keep skin healthy.

Soon, how do I get rid of this translucent skin?

Soon, how do I get rid of this translucent skin?

You don't...: ...Unless there is an underlying cause, which is possible if this is a new development. Various medical conditions (e.g. Cushing's disease) or over-application of steroid creams, can thin your skin. But if you were born with translucent skin, that's just the way your skin is, and that's okay! Pale, silky skin was much admired in victorian times. It's a part of you, so celebrate it!

Translucent skin: Improving the tone, texture and pigment in the skin to have a look more luminous may be achieved with the use of home-care skin products and office treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, intense pulsed light or laser resurfacing treatments. The modality used depends on the amount of correction needed. Have a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.

Home remedies for a translucent skin?

Make up or spray tan: I've never seen translucent skin, but I have seen pale skin. Tanning is one way to make the skin darker but long term exposure to the sun can cause skin aging, sun spots, wrinkling, and cancer. The alternative would be spray tanning or wearing make up.

Chin. I want to have a much more even and translucent skin?

And I want to be...: ...Good-looking and rich - but that's not going to happen either. In general, you have to play the hand you were dealt. Chemical peels can sometimes even out skin tone, but if you go that route, make sure the doctor doing it has lots of experience with skin peels.

Lots of veins on translucent skin on chest and breasts and some varocise veins on hands and feet. Anything to worry about?

Lots of veins on translucent skin on chest and breasts and some varocise veins on hands and feet. Anything to worry about?

Need to examine: If there has been no change in the appearance recently, it is not a likely cause for concern. If there has been recant change, it would be prudent to consult your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

What is the best treatment for the skin condtion known as " hydradenitis suppurativa? "

See your Doc.: The important thing to do is to get investigated for conditions like diabetes which make you prone to get infections. Aches could be due to infection, if no other cause is found. Correct DX and appropriate treatment would be needed to get rid of this problem. At times surgical cleaning up of the area affected by it, would be required. Hence see your doc, or a skin specialist.

What is the best treatment for skin pores?

Great make up: Large, unsightly skin pores on the nose or cheeks are difficult to reduce in size. They can be shrunk temporarily with a face peel, and sometimes with laser treatments. But I've gotten excellent results with Bobby brown skin products, especially their foundations and daytime moisturizing cream's.
