What should I do about my super-light (UD 0.5 shade in foundation) skin?

Ok, so my skin is super light and I typically do not get much tan at all. (Only burns, and I prevent it because its dangerous) ). With the summer up ahead, I'm trying to figure out what to do when everyone else is getting glowing tans.

Is such pale skin considered ugly or nerdy?

Honest opinions please.

Pale skin is beautiful- just like those born with beautiful caramel complexions are beautiful, those olive-toned beauties, and the darker complexions.  If you're born with it, it's beautiful.  I tend to think that nothing is wrong with the miracle of human life and its many colors.  Own it!

 

I don't even try to tan- I find it looks fake on me.  I also look much younger than I am since I don't have sun damage.  Embrace your paleness and ignore the haters.  Compare skin when you're both 50!

I'm a nurse.  Be warned: Any tan is actually a sign of damage to the skin.  I personally know 2 people who died in their early 40s from melanoma--the worst kind of skin cancer you can get.  Studies on identical twists show the Top 2 things that age us in appearance: 1) the sun and 2) smoking.  Stop, people, stop!

Aw, so glad!  I'm fair, too.  Not gonna shrivel up or die all in the name of "glow".  It is what it is.  To this day, I have classmates that tell me I'm the only one that hasn't aged.  I stopped trying to be tanned in college.  Not a day of regret since.
