“I try to wear SPF 45 sunscreen always. I like Shade and Water Babies, both by Coppertone. Once, when I was 15, I went to the beach in Malibu and got second-degree burns on my back. It was terrible!” Zooey Deschanel in InStyle Magazine

“I had every fake tanning product you could imagine… I’d come home late from work then exfoliate and tan before bed. I’d lie there, feeling sick, hoping that it would have developed in the couple hours before I had to get up. Every day our make-up artist would paint my entire body… The longer I battled with my body, the longer I would be unhappy. So I decided to quit it and start again as me.” Nicola Roberts

Pale girls don’t get enough love.

A wise frog once said, “It’s not easy being green.”

The point is well made.  It’s also not easy to be pale.  Makeup companies have names for pale skin - alabaster, ivory, and porcelain.  Sometimes there are less flattering adjectives too - pasty, chalky, washed-out, or sickly.  We might be called ghostly, vampiric, or gothic, but maybe we were just born this way.  Maybe we don’t want to paint ourselves orange or roast ourselves in tanning beds like a rotisserie chicken.

So maybe it’s time to say it: “FUCK YEAH, PALE GIRLS.”
