    I would guess they don't like their skin color. I don't know. I get sun poisoning too easily. So I wear sunblock and stay in the shade.

    I can't imagine a reason in the world. It's terrible for your skin, and I personally don't find it attractive

    Most white people while they dislike people of color are jealous of people of colors skin. They have this urge to look like those they dislike. people dislike people color jealous people colors skin dislike people color

    For me it's because I'm very pale naturally, and I prefer a bit of healthy-looking colour.

    Tans usually LOOK pretty good unless you overdo it, being darker covers up imperfections and such really well, but yeah...

    that Americans tend to think that a tan makes a person look more healthy, when in fact the opposite is true.

    I'm not so sure. I think we all need a bit of sun exposure to be healthy.

    Pale is very closely associated with being sick. People lose color as their health declines thusly there is a natural desire to add color to show health and fertility for potential mates. Its instinct

    I think a lot of people find paleness sickly looking. I'm very pale, but I burn like crazy so I stay pale.

    I know I look better with some color, and I think most people do. After all, why do think people say "Are you feeling ok, you look a little pale*"?

    Probably because society has brainwashed a lot of conformists into thinking that tan is the only beautiful skin tone out there.
    Don't get me wrong, I know some people want a tan because they honestly feel that it looks good on them and they truly like it, but I know a lot of people who get fake tans just to fit in.
    Personally, I think tans are overrated and I prefer the look of paleness. Besides, too much exposure to UV rays is unhealthy anyways.

    I don't know, maybe because they think it looks good. I just know that I don't tan, I go straight to burn.

    Some do it in excess to achieve the coveted leather handbag look, while others seek it in moderate doses to receive the benefits of vitamin D.
