Dermatologist 's  Response
The cause for pale yellow skin could be many like
Thyroid disorder
Excessive intake of carotenoid rich fruits carrots, spinach, oranges, mangoes, plums etc
Excessive intake of lycopene rich food like tomatoes
Excessive intake of vitamins like vitamin A
So basically these causes should be ruled out. If there is no underlying cause, then there is nothing to worry. Pale yellow skin is common in people of oriental origin also.
Hope that answers your query. Take care.
