one in the summer months to keep the sun off your face and a baseball
cap with a long brim in the fall and winter months. Even indirect sun
exposure is detrimental to fair skin. Wear a sun-coat whenever moving
out of house or while driving a two-wheeler.
Use sunscreen every day. Make sure it has a UV factor of 30+.
Fake it. Use a light makeup base one shade lighter than your natural
color, then dust on translucent powder to keep skin fair and radiant.

the summer, choose a makeup base with sunscreen for extra protection to
ensure fair skin.
