Fabulously Fair

Monday, August 02, 2010

Over the past several years I've come to embrace my uber fair skin. Let me hit the rewind button for a sec... I am a fair skinned, blue eyed, blonde haired, Irish-German gal. We aren't supposed to be tan. But boy did I try for years and years, playing in the sun without a care in the world. Now fast-forward to today, add in a skin-cancer scare at the age of 32 + mandated Dermatologist visits, and you end up with a pretty meticulous woman when it comes to skin protection now.

I know how hard it is to be a young woman flipping through fashion mags and everyone is damn near Giselle Bundchen, everyone. But I also know what it's like to be a 30-something young woman playing damage control with my skin too. Now I'm going to be honest, I may not love my "tres blanche" looks every single day but I'm learning to work it. The beauty industry as of late is helping too, a la J Crew's latest Fall Catalogue chock full of fair skinned beauties. It's nice to flip through and see oh-so-familiar pale legs working a pencil skirt!
