Ruth Griffin: Celebrating Celtic Colouring

Skin cancer is the most obvious one, as we Irish have a very low tolerance of UV exposure. Despite the fact that we don't believe we get a lot of sun in Ireland, we now have the highest reported incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer in Europe, so wearing SPF is essential as part of a daily skincare routine.

Pale skin in Fitzpatrick type 1 or 2 is generally sensitive and reactive. It can be a heat-related rash in the sun right through to general sensitivity to fabrics and skincare ­products. Overall, pale-skinned people are sensitive souls.

Facial redness, including the condition rosacea, is a common rash that predominately affects fair-skinned people from their 30s onwards. It's characterised by redness, dilated blood vessels and can sometimes contain small spots known as acne rosacea.

Melasma is another skin condition that can affect all skin types, but that is again more obvious with pale skin. It's a common skin condition in which light to dark brown or greyish pigmentation develops typically on the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose.
