If you've been blessed by a set of genes, giving you porcelain skin color, then you'll find this list not only highly relatable but also painfully funny.

A group of pigments called Melanin determines skin color; Melanin carries either brown, black or reddish tones, and their quantity and positions are what defines your skin coloration. So if you have a lack of the brown ones, congratulations on your pale skin!

So, do people always assume you're sick just because you have light skin? Is your perfect tan called 'redder than a lobster' and you get it the moment you step into the sun, even though you're wearing an entire bottle of sunscreen? Do you struggle to find a foundation that's pale enough to match your paper-white skin color? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes" then you're sure to appreciate this hilarious list compiled by Bored Panda, inside which you'll find a whole selection of funny people dealing with problems that only pale humans will understand. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

As an "also pale af", I was happy about the palette in the picture, then realized what I thought would match my skin tone wasn't makeup, it was the sponge :-/

I get burned on my left side of my face when driving in the sun for too long. So yeah it happens. Takes me 2:30 hours to be noticeable after leaving the car.

My red hair would probably save the day, although with my luck someone would think they stumbled onto a homicide scene.

That looks like a problem with the way they label makeup. That’s not remotely the color of porcelain. I’ve seen makeup in the store that looks way lighter than that called porcelain.

Sunscreen doesn't =sunblock. Sunscreen absorbs rather than reflects ultraviolet (UV) radiation, states a Harvard Medical School report. Sunblocks work, but two new sunscreens—Anthelios SX and Helioplex—provide longer-lasting protection against UVA and UVB rays.
