Here are some helpful tips

2. Have a cool shower and then apply Aloe or some type of moisturizer repeatedly – will help reduce peeling

Note: Do not pick, peel, scrub or scratch!

3. Keep hydrated – drink lots of water

4. Take some Advil – helps reduce pain, swelling and redness

  1. I can definitely vouch for the aloe vera gel. My friend and I (we have the same skin type) were both burnt and I applied aloe vera continuously until the redness disappeared (about a week). Half way through the week my friend who hadn’t used products to treat the sunburn was peeling all over. I ended up with a nice tan and maybe only 10% of peeling when compared to my friends skin. Best product ever!
