Embrace your pale skin and say bye to fake tanning products.

'Why don't you get a tan Shelley?', is the same question I get asked every summer. I just simply don't like fake tanning products and a higher chance of getting skin cancer through sunbeds sounds even less appealing. I personally am very happy with my pale skin, despite the constant remarks I get; pale skin can be just as beautiful. A white dress might not look as good on me as it does on someone who is tanned, but we pale people look super hot in red dresses. However I do wonder why it seems so unimaginable to be pale for so many people, the exact people who always say love yourself for the way you are and that's what I do. I embrace my pale skin and wear whatever I want and not what suits my skin colour. We accept people in all shapes and sizes, so why not accept different skin tones?

Pale is beautiful

Pale is beautiful ladies and I find it ridiculous that tanned skin gets associated with being super healthy and we pale people always get asked if we are ill. Look at Nicole Kidman, she looks stunning the way how she is and doesn't need a tan to change that.

I love my pale skin and so should you


For one, fake tanning can easily look tacky and I rather not have wrinkled skin from too much sun exposure or look orange because of a fake tanning accident. My skin is healthy, looks good and feels good, so why should I ruin that by trying to reflect some idiotic body ideal? Don't get me wrong, I don't judge anyone who uses fake tanning products: Firstly, I don't know how to use them and secondly I rather not expose my skin to such strong chemicals.

How I learned to love my pale skin

I always used to be one of those girls that wore skin coloured tights in the summer to avoid the comments of friends and family. Moving to England was also very ideal for my odd obsession, the summers were short and I could easily get away with wearing tights in the 'summer' without anyone asking if I'm not too warm. But one summer something happened and it clicked. I wondered why I was hiding myself so much? I have nothing to hide, there is simply nothing wrong with my legs. All these years I was listening to people telling me I should get a tan and that I'm too white, but who are they to tell me I'm too white? Just because they can easily get a tan and I can't? Times have changed now, I embrace my pale skin and take inspiration from celebrities such as Anna Hathaway or Gwen Stefani. Flamingo pink lipstick looks amazing on people with porcelain skin complexion, it's bold and sexy. It's okay being pale ladies.

  1. I like yourself have quite pale skin and tend to fake tan a lot but it always goes streaky and when it is washed away people always comment saying 'you look tired' or 'are you ill' so now I just don't bother with the tan haha!
