The Tale of Tanning
Historically, pale skin indicated high status. Tan skin signified that you had to work outdoors as a manual laborer. In the United States in the 1920’s pioneering designer and fashion icon, Coco Chanel, popularized the idea of tanning and the sun started to represent pleasure and relaxation as well as health. In reality, a tan is actually a sign of damaged skin.
