I'm what you would call pale. I've been pale my entire life - the term "fair-skinned" is a polite one for me. I've been called "vampire" and "China doll" in endearing ways by pretty much every person I've ever known/dated. It has its perks: I look a lot younger than I am and I basically glow in the dark.
However, being a fair-skinned gal can also suck in a few ways - especially if you live in a super sunny climate (why did I move to California, again?). Here are some of the real struggles us fair-skinned femmes have to suffer through during these scorching months of summer. If you need me, I'll be indoors, maintaining my vampire-status and researching SPF 200.
