7 Reasons to Love Your Pale Skin ...


There are lots of reasons to love your pale skin, if that's what nature blessed you with. Yet many pale-skinned people think that their natural skin color is ugly, and spend time and money changing their skin tone with fake tan. Or worse still, they risk their health by tanning in the sun. Yet there's absolutely nothing wrong with being pale. Here are some of the reasons to love your pale skin …

It's Natural

It's Natural One of the top reasons to love your pale skin is that it's your natural skin color. What's so wrong with being the way you are? Your skin is this color for a reason - that your ancestors come from a colder country. So wherever you live now, it's wise to be careful in the sun and stick to your natural pale skin. It's fine to be pale, it really is.


Pale skin has many benefits that are often overlooked. For one, pale skin is more resistant to sun damage than darker skin. This means that people with pale skin are less likely to develop skin cancer or age spots. Additionally, pale skin often looks younger than darker skin, making it a great choice for people who want to look young and vibrant.

Pale skin also reflects light more than darker skin, which can be beneficial in some circumstances. For example, people with pale skin often appear more radiant in photos because the light reflects off their skin more than it does off of darker skin. This makes pale skin a great choice for people who want to look their best in photos.

Another benefit of pale skin is that it is less likely to suffer from hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which patches of skin become darker than the surrounding areas. People with pale skin are less likely to develop this condition, which can be caused by sun exposure, hormone imbalances, and even certain medications.



Striking Pale skin can look very striking, especially if you have darker hair. I love my combination of pale skin, blue eyes and darker hair. This kind of contrast is much more flattering than a fake tan. So many women cover themselves with fake tan that it makes them look like everyone else. Wouldn't you rather look like an individual, instead of looking like a fake-tanned clone?


Pale skin has been associated with beauty and elegance for centuries. In fact, in ancient times, having pale skin was a sign of wealth and status. Today, many women still strive for a pale complexion, as it is seen as a desirable and unique trait. Furthermore, pale skin is less prone to sun damage and wrinkles, making it a healthier option in the long run. Additionally, pale skin can make features such as blue or green eyes and darker hair stand out, creating a striking and eye-catching appearance. Embracing your natural pale skin can make you stand out in a sea of fake tans, and showcase your individuality and confidence.


Love Your Own Skin

Love Your Own Skin Do you think that hating someone because they have darker skin is wrong? You should do. So why dislike your own skin because it's pale? Why not love yourself as you are? Although it's nowhere near as serious as racism, this underlying dislike of pale skin is still worrying. Pale-skinned women are made fun of and told they look ill, or convince themselves that it looks awful. It's ridiculous. Love your skin, whatever its shade.


Embracing the unique beauty of pale skin is crucial in a society that often idolizes tanned looks. Fair skin possesses its own ethereal charm that deserves celebration, not criticism. It's high time to challenge the stereotypes and shift the conversation towards acceptance and self-love. Your skin tone doesn't dictate your beauty. Remember that every hue on the human spectrum holds its own allure and story. Cherish the natural canvas you’ve been graced with and allow it to bolster your confidence. Own your paleness with pride—it's a part of who you are, and it's absolutely beautiful.


Wanting to Be Different?

Wanting to Be Different? We are all the color we are for a reason. Yet women with lighter skin want to darken theirs, and women with darker skin wish theirs was lighter. It's crazy. Every skin color is beautiful. It's a waste of energy to wish that your skin color was different. You are what you are.



History You may think that a tan is desirable and looks better, but the popularity of tanning is a relatively recent thing. Not so long ago, women went to great lengths to avoid a tan, as only the lower classes were tanned! They would cover themselves up, wear a hat, and carry a parasol to shield themselves from the sun. Now we'll do anything to get a tan. It's just our perception that's changed.


Avoid Premature Aging

Avoid Premature Aging Sunbathing may make you look good (or so you think), but that short-term gain will cost you in the long run. Someone who's a sun-worshipper will age much faster than someone who stays in the shade. We all have to age in the end, but why give yourself wrinkles before your time?


Ultraviolet rays from the sun can wreak havoc on your skin, dramatically increasing the chances of developing fine lines and sunspots. Embrace your fair complexion and protect it with a high SPF sunscreen, hats, and clothing that shields the skin. Remember, pale skin is like a canvas that reflects your overall wellbeing. Nourish it by staying hydrated and maintaining a skincare routine that emphasizes moisturizing and repairing. There's a timeless elegance to skin that's been cared for, rather than tanned and tried by the sun's harsh effects.


Faking It is a Pain

Faking It is a Pain Finally, the idea of using fake tan is a pain to me. Even if I wanted to get a tanned look, I don't think I could be bothered with all the hassle. The time it takes, the expense, the smell, the tan lines … just not worth it in my book.

So if you're naturally pale, realise that there's nothing wrong with it and ignore any rude comments. Pale is just as beautiful as any other. Are you 'pale but interesting,' or do you reach for the bronzer?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

CaitlinEileen, I've spent my whole life hearing those same comments, but still I refused to tan ever. Now I'm 43 & all of my tan friends look 10-20 yrs older than me. Guess I had the last laugh huh :) But I also agree with other commenters that the most important thing is to be happy in your own skin. Confidence is always beautiful!

Even though this is for pale women, it applies to us darker women,too. Dark skin is seen as dirty and undesirable. Tanks. Most desirable. But, I'm beginning to come to terms with my dark shade. C: It's dark and interesting.

Great article

I love this article thank you

Being Tan Olive tone dark is all beautiful being pale isn't just beauty or attractive at all sometimes color makes you look glowing

Well now, I think the best way to handle this is to remember that we people come in many beautiful colors! We need to remember to take care of our skin to keep it healthy no matter what color we are.

I have pale skin and people often tell me that i need to get a tan. I've been told i'm as white as a piece of printer paper, that i look like an Albino (which makes no sense), and called "Vampire Girl". I don't understand, Porcelain China dolls are extremely pale and everyone thinks they're beautiful. Not to mention pretty much all of the Disney Princesses are pale! I like my pale skin, i think its beautiful. I think makeup stands out and looks better on women with Pale skin as well.

The perception of trying to hide from the sun to stay lighter skin as possible because you don't wanna be tan so people can think your wealthy and work in doors is not a smart mentality to have either. If you think about it, people have the same mentality as they did a century ago except the only difference now is that most people don't wanna be pale and some even go to extremes to be as dark as possible. Be happy with the color of your skin is, don't follow what society thinks of as beauty. There's nothing more beautiful than your natural self!
