don't use peroxide
doing it constantly will strip your skin and you'll get very dry and flaky! bad bad thing!

I was thinking that probably in the winter would be the best time to put sunscreen on your skin. You'll probably get lighter in no time!  Grin

Thanks.  Cheesy

Actually, by avoidance of the sun (mostly caused by overcast weather lately and being kept indoors..) I now have a delightful ivory skin tone.

It's so much easier to simply run out to the store, grab the lightest color foundation I see, and scurry to the check-out.

Thanks for the tips, though!

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 look terrible with a tan, have freckles ALL over and burn horribly.so.

i ALWAYS put on sun cream.every day.even if it is a storm.
efoliating to get rid of dead skin is good
for my face neck and arms(and legs if they r showing), i put on my sun cream then concealer(face and neck) then foundation (one shade lighter) then some green powder from avon(to combat redness and dry up oils) and then i put finishing powder(pressed powder) in a nice pale shade.

if that is all to time consuming then a dusting of talc is good(spesh if it is sparkly and yummy smelling!)

my parents were punks in their day but im not sure what they used to stay nice and pale.

also staying in the dark is good.it helps stress aswell.i find laying in my darkened room with a film or some music on chills me out and pales me somewhat!

(being a massive nerd helps too!!!)

I got this from an Internet site a long time ago, I've used it and it's safe (so far as I can tell!) Smiley

My tried and tested "slightly paler" method

1 tablespoon lemon juice (from a bottle is fine)
1 tablespoon buttermilk
1 - 2 tablespoons fuller's earth or cosmetic grade kaolin powder (enough to make a thin paste)
small bowl and spoon for mixing

Wash and dry your face, mix up the paste and spread it evenly on wherever you want to be paler, like a face pack. Leave for 20 mins before rinsing off throughly and patting dry. You may like to do a patch test on the inside of your elbow before trying your face, but I've had no problems. I use this on my face, neck, hands and arms.

This does seem to make my skin paler, not by huge amounts, but enough to notice. It also gave it a nice sort of glow, it's hard to explain that better!

This internet site also had the assertion "fuller's earth is banned"  Huh - not here it's not, but it may be elsewhere. It's usually used to clean grease stains off things you can't wash and is, as far as I know, inert. You can also use kaolin powder, this is an inert clay so safe you can also find it in tummy medicine Smiley

I enjoy being pale and want to be paler, but at the same time any colour you want to enjoy being, go ahead Smiley

Neutrogena has a SPF 70 sunblock, which is amazing.
NARS also has some very light colors, such as Mont Blanc, Snow, and Flesh.

If we choose, we can live in a world of comforting illusion.
