7 Steps to Embracing Fair Skin and Learning to Love It ...

By Alicia

Embracing fair skin is something you should learn to do if you have fair skin. Being a very fair skinned girl myself, I have been down this road and know the ins and outs of it well. These are the secrets I have collected over the years that have helped me. I hope that they can help you on your journey to embracing fair skin and learning to love it.

1 Accept It is What You Have

If fair skin is what you have then fair skin is what you have. You are not going to change it as much as you may wish you could. So it is better for you if you can spend that time embracing fair skin instead of fighting against it. There came a point in my very early twenties when I realized that tan skin was just not going to happen for me. I freckle and after tons of sun exposure and blistering sunburns, might be lucky enough to get a slight tint of tan to my skin. It is totally not worth all of that trouble plus the danger of the sun exposure.

2 Realize You Cannot Change It

Realizing your skin is what it is and is not going to change is a very positive step. Once you do that you can move on to learning to make your fair skin work for you. I have actually learned to form a fondness for my fair skin as time has passed. It is unique. Fewer people have fair skin than medium or dark skin. Ironically, as I became more comfortable in my own skin, I began receiving more compliments on it.

3 Think about the Positive Points of Having Fair Skin

There are positives of having fair skin. It is something defining about you. It usually has a creaminess that other skin tones do not. It makes clothing colors absolutely pop. And with all of the information about skin cancer that has become more prevalent, it is actually becoming more fashionable to have fair skin.

4 Learn What Color Clothing Works for You

It is important to learn what color clothing works for you when you have fair skin. Generally, jewel tones such as sapphire, emerald and deep purple work well. You also have to factor in what color hair and eyes you have. Whatever colors do look best on you, you can trust they are going to have an extra wow factor against your fair skin. This can be a positive thing for you.

5 Study up on Makeup Lessons for Fair Skin

Fair skin requires a certain approach with makeup. You will have to work a bit harder to find foundation that won’t overpower you if you have very fair skin. You will need to make sure you have a bit of color on your face to achieve the best look in either eye shadow, blush or lipstick. You also need to make sure you don’t look overdone so it is a fine balance to try to find. I have found that lipstick is the best way for me to add color to my face.

6 Look at Stars with Fair Skin for Inspiration

All of us look to the stars for inspiration with style and beauty. When you have fair skin, this isn’t as easy. You cannot look at just any star. It is best if you find some fair skinned stars that you admire for their style of dress and makeup. It is also a great way to get inspiring new ideas.

7 Celebrate Being Uniquely You

Not everyone is fair skinned. Don’t be embarrassed that you have fair skin. Celebrate that it is part of you and it makes you unique. I wasted a lot of years being embarrassed over having fair skin. Now, I am very confident in who I am. You need to reach a point where you are confident in yourself and your skin tone, too.

Learning to embrace your fair skin is a process but you will be so much happier when you do. Are you fair skinned? What tips can you share with me that work for you in style and beauty?
