Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Jetaime.
When I say ‘our sun is intense’ I mean we have a huge gaping hole in the ozone layer over New Zealand – this makes the summer burn-time for me – about 5 mins. You can’t be too careful!

Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”)
Like the other people commenting here, I am uber pale. Up there with Dita Von Teese and I also have freckles. I have been bullied about my skin tone my whole life, but lately, believe it or not, at the ripe old age of 33 (but looking much younger thanks to diligent sunblock use) I am starting to feel that it’s cool, unique and sometimes even sexy. I’m finally starting to enjoy my own skin a little. When I go to the beach it’s with high SPF, a UPF sun tent, a huge hat and long sleeved tops and yoga pants for when the sun gets too much. I live in New Zealand and our sun is intense! If anyone says anything these days I just roll my eyes and think “Yeah beatch, you are going to be so envious when I look at least ten years younger than you in a few years time.”
