You bet I am pale

I have been told I was too pale so many times in my life... I used to say "If God wanted my skin a different color I would have been born that way." Now I just tell them how old I am - I am 42 and look 30. That shuts them up and I don't risk offense to one's religion or ethnicity.

Pale and proud!

I also get comments about how pale I am, but it is hard work! I would rather take good care of my skin and protect it than try to hide it with a fake or (gasp!) real tan. If you need any motivation to protect your skin, just take a look at an older woman who has tanned a lot. Yikes!

Being fair makes foundation shopping pretty tough. I certainly can't wear any tinted moisturizers because they are all too dark!

a fake tan is. . .fake

Besides looking like an oompa loompa everytime I have tried to fake tan, I just feel like a fake when I try it.  Pale is who I am and why should I cover who I am?

St Tropez never makes anyone look orange, that's why it's the leader in the industry.

I'm proud to be pale. Yes at times I may look like a vampire but I also think of my pale skin as an artist palette for all kinds of crazy colors. I sometimes use sunless tanners in the summer but overall I like my look. I think this comes down to being confident with yourself and in your own skin. I don't want to look like someone else I am happy to look like me! So many people with fake tans look the same and I am happy to be an individual! Lets face it, there is nothing more gross looking then a person with skin the color of an om-pa loom-pa!

Tan?! No thanks, I am happy with my color.
