It is so hard to be pale in a bronzing world. I am even guilty for going to tanning salons to try to become a color. It makes me so mad when people say they are pale when their pale color is my tan color. You aren't pale unless you go out in the sun and glow like a light bulb. Why aren't there more pale people with all the knowledge we know about skin cancer? Why do I have to feel like I have to hide my skin in the summer like it's a disease? Somedays I wake up and I feel pretty good and actually am brave enough to wear a t-shirt. Then I see tan people everywhere and it makes me feel ugly. I can tan, but I burn very badly..and not to mention freckle. I don't understand self tanners either. Of course I've tried dozens of them and they all are the same. You never look natural. I feel very icky waiting for it to dry and the smell is unbearable. Try going swimming with one on your skin. I learned that the hard way. You come out white!! This has kind of turned into a rant...but does anyone else feel like me??
