    Default Why do some people in Europe have tanned skin?

    A good example is the Swedes. I saw several pictures of them on the internet with their skin quite soft, looking like the white Indians in the middle of India. Why Swedes find it easier to pick up bronze?

    It's a combination of genetics and eating lots of betacarotene (carrot is a very popular ingredient in the Swedish diet).

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Firstly, Swedes look nothing like any Indian and their skin tone is markedly different.
    Secondly, People you may see as "Swedes" may have some ancestors from other places, and unless you know their entire family history, you cannot claim that exceptional Swedes are as they are, just because of their native Swedish ancestry.
    And finally, These days, some Swedes are akin to guidos, they tan in tanning booths and use spray tan. Random pictures show nothing.

    What a troll thread.

    When I think of tanned Europeans I think of South Europeans not Swedes.

    True but there is a kernel of truth to what is said. For instance , Swedes tan better than Brits and Irish. It is still a troll thread.

    The skin colour of Northern Europeans lies within a limited space on the far end of the skin colour spectrum. I too have noticed that some Northern Europeans, especially Finns, have some sort of bronzed hue a few notches above the usual pale white. Although it manifests as some sort of healthy orange glow instead of an increase in melanin.

    Otherwise, Southern Europeans are the ones with a darker skin colour, owing mainly to their increased Neolithic ancestry.

    Because they are darkies. The whitest people in Europe are in UK (not the blondest by far, just whitest), albeit some Welsh are a bit dark, I blame the pocket of E-V13.

    Do you think these people look like Indians?

    Yeah, but fake tanning is popular among British young women.

    Anyway, both Britain and Scandinavia have high skin cancer rates. Our skin isn't made for heavy tanning.

    I agree Swedes don't look like Indians, but I don't understand what's so trollish about this thread? You guys are way too sensitive if you get offended over someone doing a skin comparison like that.

    Anyway, the golden bronze Nordic tan is very real, and even Anne Rice described Lestat's sun tan as bronze after he tried to commit suicide by exposing himself to the sun, lol... Not all Swedes get the bronze tan though; some just turn out red, and I'm not sure how much diet plays a role here, but like I said, betacarotene does have an influence on skin color and can contribute to a good tan, and Swedes eat shit loads of carrots, and I'm sure Finns do also, but perhaps carrot isn't the most popular vegetable in Britain and the Balto-Slavic countries, lol.

    Myself, I just turn lobster red when I tan, so I always avoid that narcissistic fag shit (plus tanning aside from skin cancer, also gives you wrinkles much earlier in life). However, recently, I switched my multivitamins to a new brand that contains lots of betacarotene instead of the standard retinol (which can be overdosed unlike betacarotene) and also vitamin K, probiotics, ginseng and soy phytoestrogens; all great stuff, and I think I'll be trying out some tanning soon to see if I go bronze or not. But it has to be pointed out, that in order to get a bronze tan, you must have eaten betacarotene regularly for quite some time; it won't work after just popping a pill a few times.
