I think pale skin looks great! It's kind of exotic-looking, you know? Especially when people have dark hair. I think I started liking my pale skin when people started comparing me to Snow White :)

Having pale skin can make you look really classy and sophistacted :) at least that's what I tell myself to make me feel better about being so pale. And as lalalaaphoebe pointed out being pale makes you look like snow white and being compared to snow white is definetely a compliment.

My father is half Nigerian so I should have darker skin,but my mama is Irish with red hair so im a pale olive colour. I like my skin tone, but a bit of sun is good to give me cheek colour, because I can look yellow and sickly when im deprived of sun xx

People with dark skin are beautiful, people with light skin are beautiful, people with freckles and people with scarring. I have olive skin and wanted to be paler all my teenage years because I was the most dark skinned kid in school. Pale is just as beautiful as tan. Wear it :) People in Asia thinks pale skin is so beautiful that they use whitening products to become paler, so don't worry too much about it.

Lately I've been a little self conscious about my pale skin.. which is silly considering I'm a ginger. But I typically do love it, I think it gives a very porcelain look, very sweet and innocent and it's really beautiful if you embrace it. <3

I have pale skin. It isn't good for me though because when I get cold I change color, and therefore my self harm scars show a whole lot more.

I like the look of pale skin and naturally dark skin, but I hate the look of naturally pale skin that has been forced to tan. It looks unhealthy and makes me think of cancer. The only problem I have with pale skin is that I burn so easily, but love the outdoors. I have to carry a parasol when I take the dog on long walks (my husband says I'm 200 years out of style).

I'm pretty pale too and trust me I'm self conscious about it too. Guys tell me I'm pale and my friends do too. And anytime I lay out to tan I end up getting burned no matter what I do it's the worst. I've found a few good self-tanners that are more of tinted moisturizes that work really well and look natural but they don't go on my face so if I use too much I'll look like I cut someone elses' legs and sewed them on. But all skin colors are beautiful! And when people point it out they're not saying it to offend you it just makes you stand out. And that's good!

I personally like pale skin, I'm quite pale myself and I try my best to keep it that way. lol

Of course all colours of skin are beautiful, but I also think a nice tan looks good.

I've heard getting professional spray tans look nice and not orange, you can choose how dark to go.

My friends and I are thinking of getting a spray tan for summer, I'm nervous as to what I'll look like. ha

I like my pale skin. It goes with my (fake) ginger hair and (real) blue eyes. That said I do try to tan a little in summer, but I wear spf 100 and really don't like being very tan (for me, which is still fairly light).

I Loooove pale skin! I am actually proud to show of my pale skin! I love to not have the same standards as everyone else, everybody wants to get tanned, well I DON'T. In the old days, pale was considered the prettiest. If you google Dita Von Teese, she is a 40-50's inspired model-ich entertainer of some sort. her skin is very pale, she is absolutely beautiful. Pale skin is sexy :)

I have naturally very warm-toned pale skin and it looks gorgeous when it's combined with copper brown hair. 

Also, skinny and pale = <3. That's elegant.

I have quite pale skin and I tend to wear my hair in high pigtails (because my hair is super long a thicker than most so I need to keep it out the way). Because of this people always say I look like a China doll which is a massive complement to me so yes I think pale skin looks quite elegant. It's not prettier than darker skin though its just different.

I love pale skin and I loved being pale. I think it's gorgeous. Some people can't work it but there's a bunch who can.

I have pale skin.  I think it's more beautiful than over-tanned skin.  I get so many compliments because I have that porcelin doll look.  I don't understand the tanning bed craze.  Women with pale skin (who stay out of the sun/tanning beds) look younger longer, have less wrinkles.  A long time ago pale skin was a sign of wealth--the working class had to work outside in the sun.  Embrace your pale skin!  : )

P.S.  You may want to change your hair color.  I have auburn hair and that looks really nice with pale skin.  It could be that your hair color is not brining out the best of your pale skin...???
