So maybe you'll like to try that out...
I second that! I've been using SKII regularly for about a month now and apparently my skin is much paler and my blemishes (freckles) not so noticeable. Ummm...I also just moved to SE England and the weather here isn't so awesome but SKII helped the most I think

Hmm. Interesting. I've always (well, for quite awhile now) suspected that just being in a colder, non-sunny climate made me pale out pretty fast (like even if I'd been using sunscreen/block in the hotter, sunnier climate). Wonder if there's some internal cue the body picks up and downregulates melatonin production in conjunction with, or something. (Of course one thing is that a person can be less flushed and red when out of a hotter climate.)

cbcb,sunlight stimulates melanin production,so it follows that less is produced when you move to a less sunny climate.

In my case significantly less.I actually become reflective in midwinter.But i tan easily,and when i go on my summer holidays I get brown despite factor 30 everywhere.

I like it both ways I have several shades of foundation and other make-up that I specifically wear in certain seasons or at certain stages of light- or darkness.

I'm pale, and the Dior Snow line gives my skin a wonderful glow

I have almost the same problem exept that I'm not tanned but rather pale but want even paler skin. Maybe you could try the primer Blanc Universel from Chanel.

Personally, I would KILL for an olive skin complexion, I find it most attractive.
Im olive skinned and tan very easily and I am very happy with my skin color I think that everyone should be happy for what they have, every and each person is very unique!

i agree.. but i guess sometimes its easier said than done! nowadays it can be really tough for a girl (or guy) to be happy with themselves all the time.. sometimes there are good days.. and some days maybe you don't feel as confident with your looks..

nothing nobodys heard before.. but moisturizing and keeping your skin clean is key! if, when you swipe the toner on your face and see something on the cotton pad, you should wash your face again. a makeup artist friend of mine.. he's 32 now (thats the age he prefers anyhow), he started only a simple clean and moisturize regimen when he was 16. his face is amazing.. poreless, glowing all the time, even in dim light. those simple steps are what he swears by.

using a serum will also brighten your skin (i think i said this before). if you use it in the morning, you might feel like the glow is gone by late afternoon.. but long term use is very beneficial since your skin only absorbs a small amount of moisturizer, while the rest tends to stay on top or evaporate if you're in a dry climate..

ps. if you prefer still, whitening creams generally tend to be less drying than peel-off or 'paper' masks.. always follow up with a moisturizer - its one of the most important steps! and some ppl don't rbr.. but don't forget your neck needs moisturizing too

^ What is the purpose of a serum?
What does it do? I have no idea.

there are different kind of serums, e.g. 'anti-wrinkle serum', 'replenishing firming serum', etc. but basically, its like a booster essence. a moisturizing serum will give you serious moisture, and its usually has low viscosity and absorbs quickly. the only thing is you have to follow up with a moisturizer, bc the moisturizer will seal in everything.. hope this helps

The clearer (that's not a word, right?) your skin is, the paler it looks. So if you want pale skin, you should focus on clearing up any pimples and grime first!

What this poster said. The glow that sometimes seems like paleness (in a good way) has tons to do with having clear, not-dry, not-irritated, well-refined skin.
