    If I run around the block three times, it's like just a few minutes as each lap is one mile, I get a slight burn on my shoulders, neck. El Paso is SO sunny. Only 8" of rain a year.

    My skin is fairly brown now. Been on the sunbed for the past 4 months, going 3 times a week. Probably not that great for me though Are you brown now Barbi?

    there is one easy and quick way to elimiante pain from sunburn. Those reading my post might guess it....





















    thats right vitamin c

    Honestly. Mix 10grams of vitamin c powder in a decent ammount of water and spray it on the burned areas. I get burned very easily so I wanted to test this method. I was out in the scorching sun for 3 hours burning the **** out of my skin. When I get back home I was already red and sore. Started spraying the burned areas and after a few minutes the pain had gone away. Keept on spraying every 30 minutes or so and the day after no one would have known I burned myself.

    yeah it does work for sure. I am like semi albino. Get burned very eaisly. 45 minutes in the sun and I am in pain the day after. When I did that experiment it was like the hottest day in the summer here and the sun was horrible and it was for more then 3 hours. I should have been totaly destroyed by the sun.

    I cant se why it would run the tan. It only eliminates all the free radicals created by the uv light in the skin. But it shouldnt block any signals to produce pigments.

    If you didn't peel, you should tan some. I guess it only matters how much pigment you have to begin with. Just stick to tan in a bottle like SC then.

    well I do get a miniscule ammount of tan. I spent 15 minutes on the tanning beed 2 times a week for 3 months and that gave me "some" color. I could acctualy se a line where my boxers begin. That is how hard it is to me to get color

    Any improvement is improvement.
    I guess you go to the beach not so much to tan, but to reflect.

    I have a remedy straight from a doctor on a cruise ship

    for sunburns.... Aspirin. Passengers on cruises pay 50 bucks to see the doctor for a sun burn and the Rx is simply aspirin. Essentially, when you're getting sun swelling occurs. The aloe vera helps, but use an advil or an aspirin, whenever you get too burnt, in order to reduce the swelling. Guarantee you'll feel the difference.
