Does anyone have a natural and gentle way to remove the peeling skin from a bad sunburn?
I received a bad sunburn over a week ago and still have considerable peeling. I am attending a wedding soon and do not wish to go as a molting snake! I have used vitamin E oil, Aloe Vera, and cocoa butter. I am still raw and tender, so would appreciate something gentle.
how logn before the wedding?
your best one is just plain aloe vera, forget bout the rest, and a gentle exfoliate with vitamin e shower gels every day, but the prob is you will have blotches, the best thing to do is just keep putting aloe vera on 4 or 5 times a day, every day, more if you have time. and the day of the wedding if you have not completely peeled and its not tender, then just peel the remainder off (it helps to keep out of the sun until gone, but if you're like me, you will just keep getting tanned, it does toughen the skin but you risk over burning it.) its wise not to get to the stage of peeling in the first place, skin cancer is a very high risk that should be avoided, i know.. my friend and i used to do a lot of sunbathing when we were younger.. now i only get the occasional bit of tan.. i only ever use aloe vera now, and never peel, even when badly sunburnt. good luck.
Try Noxema, it is the best thing I ever used for a sunburn and it relieves the pain immediately. Just put it all over and don't rub the burn until you have to and it will all come off within a day or two, but rubbing will make it much worse if not scar you. So wait up as long as you can unless you just want to check a certain spot to prove I am right. It takes out the heat and heals faster than anything.
