    You should really be happy in the skin you're in and btw lighter foundation rarely works on darker skin, it looks odd or just fails. If you really want to be paler you can always try avoiding the sun for a while.

    You know, it's not so great being naturally really pa;e I have Melanin defficiency so, I have a lack of pigment in my skin. I blister in the sun and don't tan at all, it's like I get whiter.

    To be honest, I've learnt to live with it.

    But really skin colour no matter the colour I think it's a completely unique thing that you should be proud of.

    Don't eat any iron, at all, ever. You'll get pretty pale, you may also die.
    (I'm naturally sort of olive skinned, became a veggie, turned into a pale, dead looking anaemic freak, quite liked it.. eat meat now, though not a lot because it tastes pretty rank, so I've retained my 'just about to die' look, I don't mind though... this way I can have red hair and not look awful)

    There is a soap you can buy (not from UK0 which contains azelaic acid and is proven to reduce your skin colour by fading it a shade. I can vouch for this as I've used it before but its very hard to get a hold of. Only doctors prescribe it.

    You can get skin whitening creams although I think these are only given out by doctors so they're pretty hard to get hold of. Just be happy in your own skin.
