I see lots of questions asking about being tan/ fake tans/ how attractive tans are and a lot about really wanting a tan but I think there needs to be more attention to the good things about being pale. Basically I'm really pale like vampire/ snow white pale and I don't tan ( I was in the sun for 3 days straight in Singapore with no sun cream and I stayed exactly the same color) or burn easily, I really love being pale because it just suits me and I've always thought being pale looked elegant. The downside about being pale is it looks like ass in the summer because the sun makes me practically glow and I go really noticeably red. My pet peeve about being pale if how people act about it, some people act like its a disease and you are unhealthy unless you are super tan the most annoying thing is when people tell me to get a tan or assume I never go out in the sun or seem to be afraid I will bust into flames if I go out in the sun without sun block. So what's your opinion?
Coming From A brown or Dark Tan person...i think pale is ok.
But. I know pale skin is very delicate and hard to take care of...but its just skin lol..i get sun burnt...well really burnt black...because I am already brown lol.
Anyways I think some pale skins are attractive...and some are quite scary...it can look like someone is dead..which scares the sh*t out of me..just like a really really black person. But I am not trying to sound stupid or shallow its just an opinion...like katy perry is really pale...and she is beautifull...like the dude in the twightlight movie...he was pale and it looked unhealthy...
A lot of UV exposure can cause skin damage and skin cancer, and when people get older, the effects of staying out in the sun and tanning can become apparent in their skin. I think people should be happy with the skin color they have, and take care of it as much as they can. My relatives are obsessed with "fair skin", and it's really annoying.
I totally agree! I've never met anyone paler than myself, and honestly, I don't care, but other people act so dumb about it sometimes. I hate it when people say someone "needs some sun" or whatever... I get out plenty, I just don't tan. But yeah, like I said, I don't care. I think it suits me and can be elegant, like you said, and some guys even prefer it.
I'm naturally pale and don't really tan, either. I wish I was slightly darker, but there's really nothing I can do about it. The only time it really bothers me is when people tell me I need a tan, like I'm not aware of that fact myself. And of course, these were the first people to point out how bad my fake tan looked the one time I tried it.
I agree with EVERYTHING you said. I am the same way. I am very pale, and I don't tan - I only burn. I don't mind being fair skinned, but I'm tired of the looks I get from tan girls and people in general. No, I'm not unhealthy. Actually, quite the opposite. I eat right and exercise daily. I am just naturally this pale, and you know what? I'm okay with the color of my skin.
