Cancer Scare, Hot Pale Celebs, and a Video12:19:00 AM
A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend noticed a mole on my back that had become darker. He insisted I get it looked at. Last week, when I was visiting Minnesota, I went to a skin doctor to get it checked out. My mom has had many skin cancer spots removed from her face and body, so I wanted to play it safe. The doctor checked my body, and was "concerned" about that spot on my back. She dug the spot out with a scalpel so the pathologist could biopsy it (disgusting, right?). A few days later I got the phone call.... it was skin cancer-- basal cell carcinoma to be exact. My stomach dropped. The popcorn I was eating suddenly tasted like dirt. I was so scared. Five minutes later, my phone rings. It's the doctor. She said she had the pathologist look at the mole again. She had made a mistake-- it was likely just a mole. Not funny, doc.
This really got me thinking. 1) I love the beach. 2) I once (or twice) laid out on tin foil with my friends. 3) I went in a tanning bed before my high school prom. And 4) Yes, I feel the pressure to have that sexy, sun-kissed glow. Why? It's not right. Actually, this mindset is a bit screwy. The fact is... fair skin was considered desirable until Coco Chanel popularized tanning in the 1920s, making it a symbol of affluence in Hollywood. So, how are we supposed to reverse a beauty trend that has persisted nearly a century??? I propose that this summer we look to our fellow "pale-skinned" models and celebrities for beauty inspiration. Here are a few of my favorites to get YOU started: Emma Watson, Elle Fanning, and Lilly Collins. Check out these fair maidens and a great video below!
