People should be happy with who they are & what they look like. Natural is good

I have a permanent tan but i know a lot of black people who use skin lightning creams to try adn even out their skin tone. By the same token some of my white friends use sunbeds like they are going out of fashion. :rolleyes:

I'm happy as i am. Never been sunburnt and never look pale

They burn themselves with chemicals in india to get lighter skin? is that only in some parts- bc I have relatives in India and have been there (last time I went was Nov/Dec 2004) and none of them had burned skin....Ive never seen anyone w/ that. Hmm- maybe it's only in some parts of India??? I love my skin color- not really dark, but not light- just brownish i guess. 0_.

I'm chinese so I'm "tanned" year round. But it's not so good sometimes - I tan really easily so if I haven't worn shorts/skirt in a while (like now, damn you winter) , I have pale yellow legs and deep brown arms... : I look a bit odd.

But I actually like my men pale. None of that gloopy stuff... the more translucent the better
