As a very fair-skinned Lolita who appreciates the Victorian beauty ideal of fair skin, I have the usual problem: summer sunlight. This has been the first few days we have had any kind of sun for months, and I greatfully spent it in our garden. However, my blue-white skin has started to look golden-tan! I am not so worried about my arms or legs, but my neck and face I would like to keep a lighter shade. I use to have a link to a forum post on this very topic from Lolitasnap, but Lolitasnap is pretty dead :(
For the Lolitas who prefer lighter skin (and this is by no means everyone, some people don't like lighter skin as a Lolita beauty ideal), what do you do with summer? I've heard exfoliating works, and naturally hats and parasols and keeping covered. But are there any other ideas/tips/products that people like to use?
