no... not tan. being tan makes me angry. however, i am not discriminating against any women (or men, for that matter) of color. i believe that color can be very stunning-- just not on me. does anyone have a recipe on how to achieve a pallad, "fresh from the coffin" look? it would be very much appreciated. my skin is not sensitive, so nearly any recipe will do.  Cheesy

You can tell by the state of my room that they let me out to soon,
and that the pills that i ate came a couple days too late...

I think pretty much all you can do is wear lots of sunscreen.
And a hat.
And stay in the shade.
And maybe use lots of face powder.
;-)

There really isn't anything you can do to make your skin paler than it is naturally. All you can do is prevent it from tanning more. And anything chemical that's supposed to make it paler is probably horrendous for the texture.

I don't look good with a tan, either. I feel your pain!

Lemon juice is supposed to help fade age spots and freckles, but I don't think it does much for general skin tone. Potato water (as in the water left over from boiling potatoes) is reputed to help pale skin also, but I have no idea why that would work, so I'm pretty skeptical. You could try it and find out, though!

you might be surprised how much daily sunscreen will 'turn' your skin more pale...  i think you can appear paler too by what make-up you wear and the color of your hair.  it's really popular in some asian countries to use bleaching creams, but they are generally considered unsafe in other countries as some other thread around here was disucussing.  sunblock is the way to go!

My recipe for pale skin: genetics, sun screen, and active avoidance of the sun.

SPF 50 is a girl's best friend....also, one thing i discovered by accident, peroxide, just your standard drug store 75 cents a bottle stuff, put it on a cotton ball and rub it over your skin. I found this out while dumping it over some sort of wound for a week, where it ran over my arm was conciderably lighter than the rest of my skin...

lol that happened to me before too! i was bleaching my hair and some of the peroxide mixture went on my arm and the hair on my arm turned blond AND the sking got lighter!!

Mikan posted about bleaching creams, alot of girls in the bahamas use them as well, which pisses me off! be black and proud dammit!!  anyway...maybe that would work for you...but i think you have to avoid the sun or something...

Try listening to The Cure. Oh, and watch The Crow, a lot.


I can be a smart ass sometimes.

P.S. I apologize, I'm not making light of the question, I'm just making a bad joke.

I'm pretty damn white as well. It's actually annoying at times. I have a very hard time finding makeup that mathes my skin tone. I've taken to mixing my own foundation.
here's a website with some info on paling....I've used some of these but I can't recall which ones.
