Photo: Snooki goes au naturel

The amount of fake tanning and bronzer the cast of "Jersey Shore" relies on is so immense it's comical, but for once, we get to see one of the show's stars without her trademark orange glow.

Snooki tweeted a photo of herself on a "no makeup day" on Wednesday, and fans immediately responded to the fresh-faced look.

"[You] look great without it u should go natural more often," said one Twitter follower, while another was stunned into swearing.

"Holy s*** snooks you look the best without makeup!" the follower exclaimed.

Snooki appreciated the kind words, following up on Twitter to remark on "how AMAZING my fans/supporters are! You guys really know how to put a smile on my face! Love You all beyond words...."

However, it doesn't seem that she's keeping the pared down look for good. By Thursday, Snooki was encouraging her followers to "snookify" themselves and enter an indoor tanning photo contest.

    I think the lip injections might disqualify her for "natural" status. Sad to see how much this circus freak relies on the approval of strangers for her own self-worth. After reading this article and actually posting in this thread, I am going to go take a shower and try and wash the "loser" off. Have a good day, poor people.

    Snooki should visit Chile(her birth country) at some point. She's probably of indigenous descent, and getting to experience her actual culture might give her a bit of dignity and more of a sense of her true self.

    It could only help.

    Maybe we underestimated this woman. Between how much more attractive she is without makeup (almost unrecognizeable), and that 'Snooki' nickname, when all of this Jersey Shore garbage is done, she can actually walk away and start a normal life with a fair degree of anonyminity, and maybe even with a little bit of money left and some royalties rolling in.

      First question: Do you think that Snooki is reading these comments (or that Snooki can read)?
      Second question: Do you know what punctuation is?
      Third question: Why do you think that anything you wrote is "lol" worthy?
      The hypotheses that I can draw from your comments is that either Jersey Shore attracts those with lower language skills or it degrades normal language skills into run-on sentences that includes words like "k."
