Me too by keeping away from the sun. My skin is naturally very pale but it gets darker very quickly whenever I am sunbathing. The bad thing about my very pale skin is that I look very sick whenever I am tired, like I am going to faint.
In the 18th century women were ready to do almost anything to be as pale as they could so there is a known case about a woman who had died after drinking something poisonous (quick-silver) in order to make her skin pale.

In the late Victorian era they would consume Arsenic to make their skin paler.

I flipped through a Sears catalogue circa 1893 and they had wafers! Yes wafers with arsenic. With my twisted sense of humor I laughed. The ad said something along the lines of "these dainty morsels will make your complexion fairer." I just made that up, but you get idea. :)

I love dark skin and pale skin. I just hate it how naturally fair people try to look darker!

I remember seeing him on t.v. and as why was that way, or might have been another man. I wish I could remember the specific reason why he was blue.
