This webstrip made me LOL today because I can relate all to well! You know you’re pale when a friend makes a remark about your pale legs and you show them your tan lines to prove that this is your tan skin.

In all seriousness though, I’ve learned to accept my pale skin and now wear sunscreen every day, even when I don’t go out. I always tell my friends that Asian — especially Japanese! — sunscreen is the way to go, because the sun protection technology is more advanced, with better formulas that are usually a lot cheaper as well.

(Don’t believe me? Go read Why You Shouldn’t Be Buying Your Sunscreen in America.)

My favorite sunscreen, the Innisfree Eco Safety No Sebum Sun Milk SPF50+/PA+++, has sadly been discontinued but you can bet that I picked up a couple of extra bottles when I first found out.  ;-)  I’ve gotten J to start wearing sunscreen every day too; I bought him the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen SPF50+/PA++++ for its light formula with no whitecast. And the Nivea Sun Protect Super Water Gel SPF 50/PA+++ is a great option for the body!

As for the girls, they love their Sunkiller Mild Baby Milk Sunscreen Lotion SPF38/Pa+++ for its cute, pink packaging. Now, they’re the ones who remind me that they need to apply sunscreen before we go out!  :mrgreen:
