Oh goodness, yes the stretch marks I got from puberty will NEVER go away, I finally realized it ten years ago. I too am a pale and freckled girl that the Sun loathes. I do not tan, I burn. If I am really lucky, my skin will be less stark white, (which I consider a tan for me) but it isn't compared to the rest of the world. Plus, if I use sunscreen less than spf 15 (sport/waterproof all day type only) or 30, I burn. I have burned with 15 before...and that was within 30 minutes of putting it on and going outside.
The Sun hates me, I only wish I knew why.
Hmmm, could make a good paranormal story...
I grew up and live in central Cali. The beach I am most familiar with the central coast of Cali where the sand fleas are tiny and sand crabs are small and hard to find!
