Remember that sunburn of mine? Well, now my shins are really peeling. I mean REALLY peeling. My right leg look so gross. I took off my jeans when I got home this morning and i couldn't believe it. It even hurts to take a shower now because the streams of water hit my legs so that it forces skin to peel away some more. It doesn't hurt so bad, but it feels really weird. I remind myself of goldmember with all the flakes of skin. At least I'm not keeping them in a box or eating them.



...yet...

Yes, I have aloe and I've been using it. It's just too bad a burn, so it is peeling now and will be better after that. I just don't wanna lose my tan!

I'm peeling too and I've been using a heavy cream moistureizer. That seems to be helping a lot. U might wanna try that. I just went to wal mart and got the equate brand. That or try a nice body butter. Good luck with the burn.

i use aloe...for different purposes... :mischief:


Just remember to use alot of sunblock next time and check the SPF to see how often you need to apply it.

yeah, I'm normally REALLY pale so I know I need spf 50 minimum for an hour and a half, but I prefer 70. I had 30 on my trip and it kept washing off or not blending in because of the water. it also seems that using aloe for different purposes (other than smoking it) would be...eventually painful and smelly and sticky (more than normal) but the thought is quite ammusing all the same. ^_^

70?!? jeez im usually good with 15 or 30 applied once or twice in a full day...and I'm in Texas. Gotta make sure to geht the waterproof stuff.

I'm pretty pale in the winter and spring, but come summertime and I look like a wetback.

lol it was waterproof! The stuff wouldn't mix in on my wet skin, though, and I was tubbing so nothing was dry for me to dry myself off. I actually like being paler because it the Olde Tymes it was a sign of nobility. Plus this little river excersion has givin me proof that time in the sun makes skin softer. I naturally have skin as soft as a baby's bum, and I like the feeling. My boy likes to rub me too, so losing my softness is just something I'm not willing to be dark over. Unfortunately all the light skin is gone after band camp and even then I have a wicked farmer tan and weird tan lines from my clarinet.

I used to get a nice white patch after marching band because my lyre goes on my fore arm. (I play the flute.)

And I hear you on the high SPF. I wear at least 50. It's hard for me to find anything too much above that around here though. Damn the Irish, French, Polish, and Germans! I'm a pale skin cocktail.

A friend once gave me this advice for sunburn:

Go out, get burnt, then peel off all your skin.

After your skin grows back, go out and burn some more. Then peel it off again.

Skin is over rated.
Or, you can just not go outside. :)

My ears got so sunburned one summer, they blistered, bled and created a really big mess whenever I'd go to sleep for about the entire summer.

Take cool baths :)

I got a little sun burn last weekend, nothing like yours sounds, but it hurt a bit. I couldn't shower in hot water so I just took cool baths.

I suggest going to the dermatologist if you need an spf that high, :p . I know all about the funky lines from the clarinets too, heh, I still have them on my right hand from the first band camp. I must say though, cocoa butter works wonders...Do you remember the burn on my neck from freshman year? I hate the smell of the lotion but my neck is in fair condition even after that one.

I'm working construction now, so I'm outside most of the day and in direct sunlight untill we get the second floor or the roof on. Give me another week out there and my skin will look like leather. I'm sunburned right now, but it's not too bad.

Every time i get sunburnt, i make sure i cook bad. Then after a week or two, and the pain has gone, once the skin starts peeling, I scratch away :thumbsup: !
Feels good :)
