Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Shinygirl.
Hi Jetaime, another kiwi here – yes, our sunlight is INTENSE, the ozone depletion means that people burn super-duper quickly and badly in NZ. Even our SPFs are adjusted to compensate. I live with four overseasers and none of them were prepared for the difference when they got here.
This is an excellent article – thank you fashion police! I LOVE the quote: “…as if the pale-skinned person has somehow failed to live up to some agreed standard of skin colour.” It will be wonderful when this finally changes.
