After reading Laura's 'Then & Now' post I started having a look through some of my old photo's. I came across some that show my true skin colour. I was about 18 at the time and not into fake tan, so these pics will show you how truly white I am!
I do actually quite like how I look here, but personally I find is so difficult and time consuming to try and look good with such pale skin. I find it really difiicult to conceal and not look completely washed out (plus trying to find any foundation that actually matches my skin colour!) Also it's strange, because although I am so very pale in winter, show me some sun and I tan really easily into a deep bronze colour, I've never been one for burning.
The main reason I fake tan now is because of my legs. I love wearing mini dresses/skirts/shorts and I find a pair of long bronzed pins a lot more appealing than chalk white pasty ones! So if I have tanned legs I need the rest of my to match!
