    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...

    Weirdo

    I'm Brazilian,so I live among people who think that what is sexy is to be tan. I used to feel bad when people dissed me because of my skin tone,but not anymore. It's nice to sunbathe once in a while,but I don't wanna be slave to it you know? If I don't feel like doing it, I won...

    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...

    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.)

    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...

    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...

    I Am Pale :)

    I am pale, pasty even. Although, I don't mind much because I have the dark hair to complete the look. I kind of feel like a vampire, because of the way I look. Lol. Luckily, I can get a nice tan over the summer. One time I was in Florida and I went swimming for 6 hours straight...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Pale skin people have their own challenges.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My skin colour is weird. Because i have an actual colour, but it looks like they have sucked the life out of me. Once a doctor ordered a lot of exams because he didn't believe that this is the way i always look. Then when he had the results he didn't have any option but to...

    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...
