I have very fair skin and become very pale in the winter. In the summer, I end up with a really bad farmer's tan. I don't like tanning because I'd prefer not to get skin cancer.

What skin cream could give me some colour to get rid of the farmer's tan?

Try Jergen's Foam....no long-lasting odor (like most lotions!), and it's a gradual build up of color. All of the lotions and creams I've tried had such a strong smell, even after they had dried, that I couldn't stand it! Jergen's Foam has a light odor when it's wet, but it dries fast and the odor disappears!

Um...use sunscreen on your arms? You still are getting sun exposure there.
Avoid getting the farmer tan in the first place. You do need some sun exposure for vitamin D. You also need the amount of skin exposed that would equate to taking your shirt off. 15 minutes max is all you need for health. If you are pale I would take it 5 minutes at a time. Use sunscreen at other times on your arms. Overexposing any part of your skin (including your arms) sets your skin up for possible issues.
