Yes, I would love to hear the answer to this too. My skin takes on a pale white, almost sickly color in the winter. I used to joke that I literally have "blue blood"; now I just want to cry. I am not the type to fake bake, so please, if anyone knows the answer to the bronzer question, fill us in!

|Opinion from a pale Floridian . . . on Dec 29, 2006 @ 02:45 am|
Okay, here in Florida the only ones with a good tan are usually the tourists, the unemployed or those who look like rawhide from too much sun. Having said that, the generally accepted look here is . . . "as long as it looks natural." In today's age of tanning salons, I think bronzers are acceptable anywhere you live. If in doubt, simply use a bronzer in place of your usual blusher for a sun-kissed look. And don't forget your neckline, especially if you're going to be photographed. There is a huge difference between looking radiant and glowing, so don't overdo it !
From other posts, I know you take your vitamins but I'm going to say this anyway. Take plenty of Vitamin C. The reason is because Vitamin C is so valuable in often unrealized ways. For example, it is necessary for the absorption of iron, which binds in the blood cell to carry oxygen from the lungs. I suffer from low ferritin anemia and have to bulk up on Vit C to assist my absorption of iron. As another point of interest (since I'm already off topic), calcium interferes with iron absorption, so it is important which vitamins to take together.
|Foundation Help on Jan 04, 2007 @ 02:55 pm|
Women should as a rule have 2 foundations:
1 for the summer
1 for the winter
In all cases, your foundation should match your skin tone.
Bronzers are perfect for the winter. Apply a little powdered bronzer strategically to your face with a big brush is just what the doctor ordered.
I also recommend lightly dusting some on the contour of your face to mask any foundation lines. I also like to mix a bit of bronzer with my face powder for a subtle sun kissed glow.
A little goes a long way.
|Bronzer for all seasons on Jan 09, 2007 @ 01:25 pm|
I think it is okay to wear bronzers in the winter, I do. I do agree that women should have two sets of foundation though...one for the darker months one for the paler ones! :o)

The thing is also, that I am always pale! Season round,.. because I am fair I don't tan that easily but burn and freckle. Because I am so used to being pale all the time, when I am a little tanned it looks strange to me!
|What bronzers? on Jan 26, 2007 @ 02:39 pm|
What bronzers have you tried? I heard The Body Shop has a good bronzer for fairer skin types. My friend swears by it and has a similar skin tone to yours. I will ask her what the bronzer is called and get back to you!
