Is it healthy to be very pale?
I have always been very fair but recently have been staying inside more and have definitely lost more color to the point where I am practically albino just wondering if this will have any affect on aging or health issues in the near future

If you're very fair skinned, you are. I don't see what it has to do with aging.

You'll be less likely to develop skin cancer... but more likely to burn to a crisp when you do get a good sunning. It's a good trade off :)

I'm very pale too, there's nothing wrong with it, it's just the way we are.
Please get your iron levels checked though, just in case.

We need exposure to sunlight so our body can produce Vitamin D which we need for healthy bones and nerve function and maybe some other things. Most doctors recommend Vitamin D supplements for people who don't expose enough skin to the sun for long enough each day and that applies to most of us during the winter.
