Fair vs. Tan skin

Hello Everyone,

so I know that this is definitely a sensitive topic but I just want to hear some opinions on personal preferences for skin tone. I know that people should be happy with what they have but I would like to know the following:

Do you like your current skin tone? Or do you want to be fairer? Or perhaps tanner?

For me, ever since I started listening to K-pop, I've wanted fairer skin. It's not that I don't like my current skin tone, but I simply think I would look a bit better if I were to be slightly fairer. However, in the summer I like to be a bit tanner than usual.

Please note that I think all skin tones are beautiful as demonstrated with the photos.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I think both tan and pale skin can be beautiful. Society shouldn't have a narrow perception of beauty. My skin tone is somewhere between both photos and I'm happy with it.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

Some looks good with tan some looks good with fair,
If you got the wrong match, it is not about trend or not, but about ugly or nice.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

Well, I personally am a fair-skinned person. But I've always wanted it fairer. I have solar allergy, an affection that requires to use solar protection. Also, I could never tan, because of the irritation appearing on my skin when I don't apply any protection. Still, I would love to have a fairer skin, as I love how it gets on with dark hair.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I am incredibly fair and honestly think I look better with a little bit of a tan. (But I am too concerned about skin cancer and wrinkles to sit out in the sun.) I have seen gorgeous women with both incredibly fair skin and women who have a glow, I just hope that anyone with a tan has achieved it by using tanner for the face or bronzer.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I prefer fair skin, but I also think dark skin is beautiful, not on me tho My pale skin really suits me! Same for my boyfriend. But I actually find dark skinned men super attractive. I really like dark skin on others, but not on me, because as I said... that skin tone doesn't suit me at all.

In my opinion both pale and dark skin tones are beautiful, but in the end its all a matter of personal taste. The skin color shouldn't matter any more.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I have fair skin, and I'm quite content with it. It's not too white, it's actually similar to the 1st photo that you posted. My exposed areas like arms are that tanned, but the hidden parts are fairer.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

Definitely agree with everyone on there being different perceptions of beauty.
So many people nowadays are striving for something that they're not. An example is the fact that many Caucasians want tan skin meanwhile southeast Asians might want to strive for fairer skin. Obviously, there's also cultural aspects that should be considered. In general, cosmetics companies really know how to advertise, market, and target.

Doesn't matter... as long as my skin doesn't turn yellow.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I like my fair skin. I used to be much fairer, until I started to learn how to swim. I think I'm still not considered tanned though.

I think both fair and tanned skin is alright. I'll definitely become much more tanned after entering NS. The difference is what colour of clothes matches you better.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I'm quite tanned, but I'd rather be (much) fair(er). I think I look better with fair skin.... but I can't make myself fairer for some inexplicable reason. Probably because I am exposed to the sun everyday, and I don't bother with sunblock.

I have quite a fair skin and I liked it that way. I do not like being too fair or too tan for myself. I think both skin colors are beautiful.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

Years of walking to school back then makes me quite tanned now.
I was shocked when I found pictures of myself as a kid because my skin is so much fairer back then. But eh, as time goes by I learn to accept my tanned skin because they are not that bad. I don't have to worry about "fair skin maintenance", so that's always a plus

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I have fair skin tones, and wish I was more tanned looking. However I think at people usually want to be the opposite of their "natural" look. Although I would prefer to have a tanned look, I would not use sunbeds or fake tan.

Re: Fair vs. Tan skin

I am somewhere in between. I am not really tan and not really fair, but my arms and portions of my legs are tan since they are exposed to the sun, while the parts hidden by my clothes are fairer. I just want an even complexion. I don't really want to be fairer or anything. I just want to look less like Frankenstein.

That sounds a lot like my case too.
Those areas that are constantly being exposed to sunlight will be a lot darker than the areas that are covered by clothes.
It's funny, sometimes all I have to do is pull up my sleeves and everyone will be like "OMG what's wrong with your arm!!!"
It's fun seeing their reaction
