Hello. welcome to HCM.
It is too early to decide the complexion of child, because when they cry, the face will be suffused and red. Such children will usually appear to be wheatish. Also, how a child will appear in late life depends on genetic factors, personal care and climatic conditions. Also, overall nowadays, it is not very practical to worry for complexion alone as overall personality is more important.
As far as body hair are concerned, there are old Indian remedies of application of kneded dough after daily massage which will help reduce hair in babies or application or turmeric mixed gram flour for slightly older child.
It is better to wait for at least 3-4 months to accurately decide complexion of your child.
Take care.
