Yes, the Asian ladies were on to something when they decided to stay out of the sun. It's much healthier though beauty tip#500.....TAKE SOME VIT D Supplements. Too many of us aren't getting enough! ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO AVOID THE SUN!

My friends used to tease me about my skin all the time in high school. But I never cared. I liked being the different one in the group. Pale skin is just way prettier, in my opinion. :)

I love my pale skin. I'm considered a "high contrast" because I have naturally dark hair, dark eyes and eyebrows, and a pale skin tone. I don't use self-tanning products, and while I get a bit of a tan in the summertime, I don't like to over-do it because I prefer the pale look.

There is NOTHING wrong with being pale! I live in Washington so a lot of girls love to hit the tanning bed, but I've always been weary of it. Now I'm in my 20's and although I sometimes still get teased on my pale complexion I wouldn't change it for the world, I'm IRISH, what else would I be other than white?! If anything, I correct people by saying "I'm not pale, I'm porcelain." Which usually gets some laughs. Embrace yourself as is and be confident about it :)

I had a friend once crack a joke that I'm "so white that I reflect the sunlight!"  I don't mind being pale because it's my natural skin tone.  If I go out in the sun, I do get a bit of a tan, but I don't try to get a tan.  I am also from Washington, and unless you fake and bake, you really can't get much of a tan.  There is a difference between being pale skinned and pasty or ill looking.  I think too many people equate a tan with a "healthy glow."  When people who tan regularly age, they show it much earlier.  Most people think I am 10 years younger than I am because I am not showing my age with wrinkles yet.

I like my pale, though unfortunately now sun-damaged skin!  Whne I was a teen, tanning was "in".  No talk about skin cancer or sunscreen in those days, the 70's-80's.  I used to spend a lot of time trying to get a tan, thinking I was too pale!  I cringe now when I think of what I was doing to my poor skin.  Of course, like I said, we didn't know what we know now....

Tanning beds were popular too, but I never used them.

As for fake tans, never tried that either.  For one thing, they ARE fake!  Applying that lotion sounds very tricky; you don't want it to be obvious you are wearing a fake tanning lotion.  At least, I wouldn't want it to be obvious.

Anyway, I've been viligant about sunscreen EVERYDAY for years now, and I've started wearing hats too.  I didn't use to wear them at all.

I wish I still had the pale, porcelain, undamaged skin I once had.....Sigh.

Beautiful just the way you are!

Taking a quote from Bruno Mars, it's really your own individual perference to be who you are! 

Having a fake tan is much better than risking getting skin cancer from a real tan. I don't think you shouldn't let people get to you for being "pale".

I like my pale skin, too. Last summer just for curiousitys sake, I laid out and tried to tan a few times. Not because I really wanted to tan, just to see if I could. I managed to get a decent one going. More like a farmers tan though. I'll stick with my even pale skin tone lol
