    Have any of you noticed a slight yellowish-greenish tint to your skin when illuminated by certain types of compact fluorescent lamps?

    I'm pale and range from light beige to light pink in anything from ordinary incandescent lighting to older fluorescent tubes to sunlight, but the CFL's I have in my bathroom give me a hint of green and the effect is most pronounced on my penile shaft skin.

    Now, it's not all CFL's and I'm not talking green like the Incredible Hulk- it's just a subtle thing I've noticed and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed anything similar.

    its because differnt CFLs put out different spectrums of light. some are "soft white" and "warm white", which put off a reddish light. "daylight" put off light more in the whiteish blue spectrum, and "cool white" also puts off light from the blue spectrum
