There is nothing wrong with having a nice Summer glow. In fact, it can be slimming, sexy, and make you feel like a million bucks on the beach. So, all you mocha-skinned divas, this message doesn’t apply! Rock out with your gorgeous color.
However, if you’re a pale lady or gent who is laying out to achieve the effect, it’s going to have beauty repercussions. Are you ready to accept that responsibility? While your tan may look great in the short term, it’s going to cause lasting skin damage. So you have to decide… do you want to be impulsive now, or play the long game? Ultimately, it’s up to you to determine whether you want to embrace your pale skin or fry yourself in the quest for that California bronze.
A Whitener Can Help Diminish Dull Skin
I get it! I’m a bonafide pale lady, and I look at pictures of Beyonce, Penelope Cruz, and Jessica Alba and sigh with envy. Why does my reflection look so dull, pasty, and unappealing? One solution: investing in products designed specifically for your skin tone can help you learn to love the skin you’re in! In my case, I opt for favorites like Skintrium and Dior that tailor their lines specifically to my ivory skin care needs.
Exfoliate, My Friends!
If you want to embrace your natural color, you have to slough off that dead skin and let the new cells take their place. It’s all about cell regeneration, and there are many ways to do it! Chemical exfoliators like lactic acid and retinol can act as great additions to your shower caddy. Or, if you like a more hands-on technique, spring for a loofah or even a washcloth. Simple, right? Regardless, this step is crucial to maintaining a luminous complexion.
Use a Pigmentation Corrector!
As mentioned above, we’re big fans of Skintrium’s whitening products. And they have a great line of correctors that can help you achieve an even tone on both face and body. Their a luxe buy, and definitely an investment, but well worth pennies! After all, you want to be fabulous into your golden years! Prevention is key!
Hats, Scarves, and Sunnies – Protect that Pale Punum
Okay, so no one wants to cover up a great hair day. However, if you’re already unimpressed with your morning blow dry, might we suggest an adorable cap to complete your ensemble? It will keep the sun off your face while you run errands, and cut down on the amount of sunscreen you’ll need throughout the day. Don’t get us wrong, you should still apply your SPF, but you’ll get double protection and less stress. What’s not to love about that? Add a scarf, some big sunglasses, and other accessories, and you’ll look the part of a 1950’s movie star! How glamorous!
