I’m quite pale and generally I’m prone to getting sunburns so I always cover up outside – I actually think I might wear jackets more in summer than in winter. I last got sunburned late last August when touring Crater Lake, in the state of Oregon… I didn’t realize that I’d be on a boat for so long in the direct sun, so I got a nice patchy sunburn that didn’t go away for months. At least it was kind of funny, since I had a big tear in my jeans over one of my knees, so I got to laugh at how odd my sunburn looked on that leg…. Still. No tanning for me, but at least I can stave off burning with my insistence on covering up in the sun during the summer. Fair skin looks just fine on me, though, being natural with my family, so I don't mind not being able to tan so much.
I BBBBBUUUUUUURRRRRRNNNNNNNNNN. I am EXTREMELY light-skinned, and if I don't put on high enough SPF sunblock, I literally get as red as a cooked lobster within 15-20 minutes TOPS. Once, I go sunburned so bad, I missed a WHOLE WEEK of school because I had blisters and couldn't wear clothes. I was stuck in my room in nothing but my birthday suit.... wasn't pretty.... *shudders*
Well, heh, before I moved down to Georgia, I was pretty much as white as could be. Once I moved down to the Peach State, I discovered my tanning abilities. I can tan for a while before getting sunburnt.
I can't get very dark, if any, but I can get a nice tan-look; however, I typically tend to stay indoors. :xd:
