Celebrity Edition comes to you because we work very hard to spread the word far and wide that pale skin is beautiful. And that to engage in natural or artificial tanning is not only unnecessary, but dangerous. However that message often falls on deaf ears, as the power of marketing is at times too strong for some to overcome. In order to reverse the mistaken notion that tanning will improve appearances, sometimes you have to step up the game with premier illustrative examples to drive the point home. And so today we shall.
The Who’s-Who of Pale and Proud
Hercampus.com, a website dedicated to an audience of college women, recently posted an article listing 15 beautiful female celebrities with very pale skin tones. Before we continue with our post, here is the august group Hercampus.com highlighted; presumably in no particular order:
- Scarlett Johannson
- Michelle Trachtenberg
- Emma Stone
- Zoey Deschanel
- Gwen Stefani
- Rachel McAdams
- Christina Hendricks
- Reese Witherspoon
- Kirsten Dunst
- Megan Fox
- Blake Lively
- Amanda Seyfried
- Jennifer Lawrence
- Kate Bosworth
- Keira Knightley
These wan women aren’t just beautiful, they’re stunning. And celebrities like these should be among the first people anyone thinking they need tanned skin to look good should consider. They and others like them make no apologies for their natural beauty. Nor should they. Pale skin isn’t just gorgeous, it’s healthy. By contrast, the effects of tanning are temporary and progressively harmful. And even if you’re lucky enough to avoid skin cancer, you cannot avoid its continual impact on your skin.
Think about any new tee shirt that you’ve ever owned. At first it was pristine, then with each wash cycle it slowly became more distorted and faded. The principle with tanning is similar, with the key difference being that the damage gets more pronounced instead of less. With increased sun exposure wrinkles, sunspots and premature aging are not only inevitable and unavoidable, they’re highly visible.
So before you seriously contemplate tanning as an option, or even if you already have, think of the repercussions. And then think of these and other extraordinarily attractive, admired women who’ve achieved their status simply by sticking with the pale skin they came with.
