There seems to be a resounding, deafening silence of worried swain eager to avoid the dog-house in answering such a deadly question Both types are indeed very becoming when accompanied by the eternal message of a friendly smile, regardless of the tint from its envelope. Did I succeed in avoiding the question? lol! Best Wishes, R.Q.
hehehe Perfect answer dear Romeos! Both are quite lovely, I might add. After I asked it, I thought about what you have just written, someone does not want to wind up in the dog-house for answering. I thank you, kind sir, for your bravery!
Thanks for the Oscar dear Faith; I'd like to thank ......lol!! Looks as though there are pro's and cons to both shades from reading your amazing commenters; a healthy golden sheen vs skin cancer and premature aging; healthy, but pasty on t'other.
You're most welcome. Your poem it what sent it over the top : ) ... honestly, your answer is perfect as it is so very wise ... But all did have great answers and comments too as relates to the pros and cons of both types.
I think porcelain white skin looks kind of scary and unhealthy. It's also unattractive in my opinion to see someone like that in a bathing suit or shorts. Based upon the number of people who spend tons of money on tanning booths, suntan lotions, and sprays I must not be alone in my thinking. Having color looks healthy. :-)
I couldn't agree more -- but then, my own skin tone is what I lovingly refer to as "fish belly white"...or, on less positive days, "corpse white." I suppose it's still better than skin cancer, though, so I keep it.
Hi dashingscorpio, I can understand what you are saying as to those blinding white legs on the beach, but the leathery over tanned skin is not attractive either. As wychic pointed out, many are more concerned with skin cancer today.
Very true. I lived in Southern California for over 25 years and there are some people who overdo it with tanning. Too much sun can really damage and age one's skin! Some people look like walking pieces of leather! :-)
I think both are equally beautiful. I have a friend whose skin is so porcelain and she would pass for Snow White anyday. However, lots of people here in South Florida are tanned and looks so beautuful as well.
Hi teaches, yes, the flawless porcelain skin is so beautiful like fine china, and the naturally sun-kissed skin is equally beautiful, if not overdone to me too. I lived in Tampa when young and just married and always had a lovely tan.
