I realized last night at my pilates class, I'm one of the few people who doesn't tan. Most everyone (including the instructor) have this healthy glow.
I couldn't say if these were tans from sitting on the side of a pool OR fake tanner.
I don't tan well. I get sunburned really easily. It's the Norwegian/British Isles in me. The worst sunburn I got was when I got the *brilliant* idea to try and tan a week before my wedding. That was a genius moment, let me tell you.
And not only that, there's a history of skin problems in my family. My dad has had at least two problem moles removed.
There are simply times that I realize I would have gotten along much better in different times of history and fashion. Tanning is one of those trends.
So for the moment, I'll stay with my youthful, pale self. And maybe I'll avoid some of the skin problems as I get older.
It could be one of those "I'll regret" things, but I'm willing to take that chance.
