I’m a natural red head & super pale, and I’m pretty anal about my skin. On the times I’ve gone on cruises, I use 80+ SPF & reapply as needed. Drink plenty of water so you don’t get too dehydrated, & get in the shade when the sun is too much. Some people think it’s a bit much, but hey, I have great skin & I’d like to keep it that way!


For some color, I like using Jergens shimmer lotion. the more often you use it, the darker you get, but it’s gradual & flattering. It doesn’t look fake, & it’s light enough that I don’t have to worry about gross streaks, but still gets the job done.

Just wanted to mention that if you do try the Jergens lotion make sure to wash your hands afterwards.  My boyfriend always puts lotion on his elboes and used my Jergens natural glow when his ran out… a week or 2 later he noticed that his elboes and inbetween his fingers were orange!  LOL  so just make sure to apply evenly and wash your hands!  I also agree with the no tanning booth.  I used to go when I was younger (now I’m in my 30’s) but they’re actually terrible for your skin… and I really don’t tan anyways.  Took me a LONG time to realize that.  My boyfriend calls it “Pasty Hotness” but I don’t think that’s going to catch on with anyone. 🙂  Enjoy your cruise and I hope you come back with something sparkley and a new fiance!

stay away from tanning beds and the sun (unless you use a high SPF). 

Skin cancer is not fun.  I had a basal cell removed on my forhead a few years ago; 4 hour surgery, you are awake, and even though they do their best to keep it from scarring, I have a reminder on my forhead.  Because of the sutures they use to keep it from scarring, I was miserable for a week, which a huge bandage over my eye, for a week.

There a lot of self tanners out there, go that route. 

Looking good for pictures is not worth getting skin cancer.

don’t tan! Pale can be beautiful! LOL I would prob suggest a spray tan with a technician. So it will be applied evenly 🙂

I am extremely fair with (colored) red hair and my SO is latino and gets super dark. He loves my pale skin and blue eyes and takes it upon himself to be the sunblock enforcer! 

I have had great luck with the Jergens sunless tanning products. They’re inexpensive, you can usually find coupons and they’re gradual so pretty foolproof. I use the kickstarter one for a day or two first and then use the gradual lotion. I love the face version, too. 

I will not use tanning beds. I am in my mid thirties and don’t look a day over 25 and I want to keep it that way! I have so many friends who have damaged their skin very badly tanning. Premature wrinkles are not attractive!
