    I Am Mozzarella Cheese!

    My skin is as pale as a ghost. I have to search for stores that sell foundation for the nearly non-pigmented skin, like mine! When I visit my friends in Italy, they always compare me to cheese colours. My base is mozzarella and then, if I am lucky enough to get a tan after...

    Pretty Embarrassing

    Seeing how I'm Chicana, I'm ashamed of my light complexion, and I'm so tired of being called a "white girl", "gabacha", and all those other slams. If the sun would ever shine here, though, I at least am able to tan to a lovely caramel brown without burning.

    I'm One Of The Palest People I Know

    I only know 2 other people who are as pale or paler than me. My whole family is pale, but I'm definitely the palest. The most I've tanned is about half a shade darker, so I still look pale. I get sunburned really easily and my mom says that when I was born the nurse said "You're...

    Perfect.

    I love pale skin. It's so pure, transparent. In my opinion is beautiful, not a shame. I don't understand why girls would kill to be tan. And tan hours at a time, damaging their skin to be a certain color. And hate girls that are naturally born tan. If you're pale, you should be...

    Its Pale.

    I have some Irish in me so its hard to tan. I have a little Italian in me too though so I can tan eventually but don't do that much anymore just for fear of skin cancer. My skin is basically pretty pale. I need lotion if I'm out in the sun for longer amounts of time. I sort of...

    I look like I have some sort of strange disease

    at the moment.. But I'd just like to take the time to sit and examine my pale complexion. I can't tan. I sunburn but don't get darker. My hair lightens, my pink fades, my skin blisters, but after a few weeks, WHALLA. Still Snow White.

    What's wrong with having pale skin?

    Some people have said "you should get a tan" - why should I change myself, I love my skin! I have some freckles. I work out and try to keep my body in shape rather than focusing on something I can't really change much. I could go tanning, but I'd rather not. Tanning can give...

    Without Tanner, I Look Like A Ghost

    Why am I so pale? My dad is olive skinned! My mom isn't even as light as me... People make fun of me and call me a vampire when I avoid the sun (I look like I was torched if I'm out too long, or neglect the sun cream.)

    I Love My Pale Skin~

    I've always been very pale. I'm so pale that, when I'm outside on cloudy days, my skin is literally white. Like, actual white. And on sunny days, I can blind people because of how much my skin reflects. People have made fun of me for it, mostly other pale people who are less pale...

    My White Skin

    I'm what you call a black Irish. Which means a pale Irish person with dark brown to black hair naturally. People always asked me if I was an albino who dyed my hair. Of course its a stupid question. I have pigment in my hair and eyes. In grade 7 I tried everything to get a tan. I...

    I Love Being Pale

    I'm pale because I'm an indoor person. I'm half white, half asian so if I wanted to, I could tan easily. My arms are a little darker just from exposure while driving/walking around town. But I think I look better with light skin - fresher, I guess. I think it makes my dark hair...

    I Have Very Pale Skin.

    I have always been very pale, even when I was young. It's always been pointed out to me through out my life, and to be honest, that gets a little frustrating. But, thankfully, I've learned to ignore it. For some reason people are fascinated by my skin tone...

    Like, I don't tan. I burn. I could be in the sun for 10 mins and I end up looking like raw ham. I always wear sun screen. I can never find a make up that matches my skin tone. It always ends up too dark. I can't take pictures with the flash on. I end up looking like Casper. You...
