    Way too many people end up looking like oompa loompas when they fake tan... but as long as you don't use too much it's OK. Although I think pale skinned girls are much hotter anyway, so stay like that!!!

    The pleasant Mediterranean climate attracts a large number of tourists each year. With an average of 270 sunny days per year, Bar is one of the Mediterranean’s sunniest towns.

    I guess girls (and guys) in my town have no need to tan there are pale people and pale is nice for a change (but not like paper-white people really). Whatever is natural and not too much, I like.

    I'm fairly pale, especially my legs. I tried using the gradual tan-building moisturiser, but I didn't like the smell. If I even attempted to use actual fake-tan, I know it would be a disaster. I dunno, I quite like being pale.

    All girls that use fake tan look like Jordan styled, Essex based tramps (unless it is professionally applied). Natural beats fake every day.

    Simple, natural = better. In all regards.

    Work the pale, no one wants to date a walking Tango advert

    Pale can be beautiful*, but for some reason I just can't pull it off. I think I was born to be in the sun - I was a golden child! I've been pale for the past couple of years, after there was a huge boom of tan equalling chav, but now I'd do anything to have sunkissed skin again! I tried fake tan once but it smelt awful and the colour wasn't great, so now I'm going to make the most of the little sunshine we have here in good old England...

    How on earth do you expect to be able to attract a famous footballer for a boyfriend without looking like you've fallen in a vat of orange paint?


    I'm afraid you'll just have to suck it up stick to regular guys from now on.

    I find that moisturisers with a gradual tan element gives the best most natural tan.

    I'm pretty pale.
    I used to fake tan every now and then, but I'm far too lazy. So much effort :yawn:

    I'm quite happy with the colour I am, I don't really wanna spend time/money trying to change it, seems a bit silly to me :dontknow:

    It's better to be pale than end up looking orange like David Dickinson:



    You're either tanned or your not. :cheeky:

    My legs are literally white; it's been so long since they saw the sun...
    I like being pale though! I think it suits me. I can't even imagine myself with a tan, but I think it would be odd.

    I'm fairly pale thanks to my mother's Scottish descent and unfortunately do not follow my father's Italian descent unlike the rest of his side of the family (all very dark!)

    I'm not one for sunbeds and I definitely don't bake in the sun because I get boredddd far too easily and because skin cancer is NOT on my to-do list.

    I've used fake tan over winter at uni but in the sun it just looks awful and patchy - no matter what I use!

    I've ended my relationship with fake tan and am now searching for a way to work the pale look. Girls, what is your take on summer skin?
    Ah, it's good to know that I'm not the only Scottish/Italian user with an (presuming?) English accent! :p:

    pale in my humble opinion is more sophisticated and classy as a lot of the girls in the UK are glowing orange ... but girls with naturally darker skin should also work it and not try to be paler.
    THIS. Happiness in what you have FTW!

    Don't think you need to worry about it. We're supposed to be pale and there is t a lot wrong with it! Although it is somewhat ironic, being a quarter Italian. I'm the least Italian looking person ever!

    I like being pale! All my friends are tanned or CAN tan and they always say it looks much more sophisticated and interesting to be pale

    I personally like having my hair dark to contrast with the pale skin. Also, a product I really like is Lush's Silky Stockings, which is like a pinkish shimmery body tint. Makes your skin look really sort of glowing and ethereal.
