Ok here is my problem. I have alot of Irish in me so you can imagine I don't tan well. This is how I work. I go out, I burn, I peel, then im white again. I don't get any tanner. How do I get tan naturally. No tanning booths.

    Taning booths always make you tan. Would recomend Suns Up tanning.
    I am/was paler than you, soooooooooo pale. But then I went to suns up. They only have 2% UV rays and they make it almost inpossable to burn. Anyway, always get complmented on my sun-kissed skn <3
  • wolf 2010/03/22 02:35:22

    Why bother? I am pale my Daughter has ginger hair and is pale, and has lovely skin. Why not settle for that sunkissed glowing look?

    You don't need a tan. Pale is beautiful and you should be proud of what God has given you. It's disgusting when people feel they need to be something they're not.

    Speaking as someone who has had the same problem for 25 years, you don't. Sorry, but those of us who only have two shades (pale and burnt) just can't tan. You could try the spray on stuff or the lotion, but it will turn you a very unnatural and unattractive shade of orange. Trust me, you're better off pale than looking like an oompa loompa.

    Most men don't care. Very seriously. Men may get criticized as being more superficial and this is definitely true about body type, but men do not care about tans! Usually the only men that care about skin color are the racists.

    I use Jergen's Natural Glow. I have a lot of Irish in me too and the only way I could ever get a tan was to go to a tanning bed. Once I got over the initial burn I had to go every other day to keep my tan and that gets expensive. Plus tanning beds are really bad for you.

    Consult a tanning salon. Frankly there is a reason you have pale skin. that means you dont require the same amount of Vitamin D as other people do.

    LJ is very right. You are being WAY too critical about yourself. Don't call yourself a "ghostly." Bronze tan isn't "in" anymore. Be ahead of the curve and stay fair skinned.

    I've not seen any pale whitey turn any other color than red... um, maybe prolonged exposure to sun.
