Sun Care Tips for Pale Skin

Hello you fair beauty,

Being pale is unfair (no pun intended). We get a pretty bad rap when it comes to summer and it always feels like our enjoyment is limited to how long it takes for us to either become lobsters or for our skin to fall off altogether. I've been there, my boyfriend has nicknamed me "new born fish" due to the fact that I am so pale I am almost see through. There is nothing more most pale girls want in summer than to be a golden glistening goddess but to achieve that, we need to go about it the right way.

First thing I am going to talk about is sun screen, sun cream, sun block, whatever you call it, you need SPF baby! I am a nightmare when it comes to sun cream. I hate the sticky residue it leaves, I hate feeling greasy and I hate my sweat becoming more obvious as it turns milky white. Alas, I have found an alternative, Delph was sent to my blogger mail and I thought I'd give it a go.


First things first you need at least factor 30, no arguments. If you choose to go higher, which I recommend then brownie points to you. The Delph I have is in factor 30 and as well as being a sun cream it is also a moisturiser so it soaks in. Beautiful.


If you are going to tan please either do it before 10am or after 4pm, the sun is it's least aggressive at these times, start with 10-15 minutes proper tanning time and gradually increase by a few minutes a day until you reach a maximum of 30 minutes.

You are not immune to the sun if you are in water. In fact it makes it worse because the rays reflect off of the water. I recommend Delph in water, you don't end up feeling like a slippery seal and you won't get a milky cloud surrounding you. Don't forget to reapply after you get out.


When your day is done, use aftersun. After sun is not just for burns, it will cool and soothe your skin. At the end of the day you are cooking yourself so the Aloe Vera in the Delph aftersun will help repair any damage that you may have got and the vitamin E will moisturise and soothe.


 It is so important to keep reapplying your sun cream and use after sun if you want a long lasting tan that doesn't peel. You can grab Delph at most good pharmacies. If you are going away make sure you have enough sun protection and be careful in the sun. Follow these tips and you'll be a bronzed goddess in no time!
