Cancer Scare, Hot Pale Celebs, and a Video

12:19:00 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  MinnesotaI 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!

PLEASE watch this video, and pass it on to your friends!
