Pale skin

A bit of a vanity issue here but my skin is very pale. Like sheet white.

I was under the impression that if i ate plenty of vitamins and minerals that i would get a little colour; Obviously not tanned but a healthy look.

I know tiredness can make you pale but i get enough sleep.

I tried that garnier sun glow lotion with took 3 days and i was glowing all over. only problem was i looked a little orange haha.

Besides tanning beds is there anything i can do?

If i was to sunbathe, which creams would i need to use, and what factor to start with. Do these creams help to tan or just to protect you from getting burnt? When do you know to reduce factor?

    I've got the same problem :/

    Just got back from a week in Spain... 30 degrees every day and I still look like a ghost but with a few new freckles :/

    Check out this thread : http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/m_1887471/tm.htm

    If it wasn't for the injections and the possibility of my freckles getting darker or bigger I'd be on it like a shot !

    And though she be but little, she is fierce..

    I'm naturally pale skinned and always use the sunbeds before i go away on holiday. I really don't think there is much else out there other than fake tan creams and sunbeds.

    Although the link that Welshy has given looks promising and i have just started a course myself.

    Have you given them a good enough try though??

    I felt the same as you because up until a few years ago i had never had a tan in my life.

    The very first time on sunbeds i just built up slowly and it did take a while for me to get a tan, easily over a month i think. But gradual progression was what worked for me.

    I don't get it, whats wrong with pale skin?
    I tan easily but have not sought to tan my skin for about 20 years, I wear sunblock and aim to keep my skin as pale as possible. I prefer the look of pale skin and I dont want the accelerated ageing that goes with sunbathing or sunbeds.

    I'm so pale that I actually glow... seriously... put me in a dark room naked and I'm easily visable

    I burn, get prickley heat or what ever its called! Its crap! I wish I was born in the victorian times with this skin, I would have been a pin up! (If that wasn't when men wore white make up to look pale then please ignore or correct accordingly)

    I naturally have a warm light brown skin tone. Im quite lucky actually, many other asians i know tend to have very dark skin tones, or off brown, so i was very fortunate. Its one of the things my fiancee likes the most!
    No sunbeds required either. But my other half just uses the sunbeds once a week and has a lovely skin tone, i believe shes does 6 minutes a week. Shes naturally blonde though, that may be why she tans so well. TBH i have no idea! I do know its a good thing, because i simply cannot find pale skin attractive in a female.

    Is it your body you want darker or just your face? You can get tanning moisturiser for your face by loreal i think. It's in a grey and orange box. Works a treat

    please note i have never used this product. or any moisturiser.

    Pale is fine. Sun damage adds up and being tan and wrinkled is worthless. Always skin cancer to think about also.

    I'm whiter than white. I'm practically an albino. Although I'm also damn hairy with jet black hair. Basically, I'm an albino monkey.
