I have been tanning for a while now.. And a few days back I was in california swimming for a few hours, didn't wear sunscreen because I don't really ever burn but... A few days later where my shoulders were kind of pink, the skin is starting to peel and I can see the lightercolors underneath.. It kept peeling and now I have big white patches on the back of my shoulders from the skin peeling... I don't know whats wrong or what to do.. help?

Sounds like you did burn. Calif. Tan makes a great product called Insurance or try Aloe Vera and Lidocaine for pain releif. Take cool showers.,

Always wear an SPF protectant outside. You can get sunburn even when there is snow on the ground! Your salon should have taught you that. Apply ALOHA's remedies, that should do you fine.

That's something that you really can't rush. Once the peeling has stopped, you will have some discolored areas from where you damaged your skin. Give the burn time to heal, and when you don't see skin peeling off anymore, start using an exfoliating scrub once a week (but please make sure all peeling has stopped! Using a scrub before then can irritate the newly exposed skin.). This will help remove any dead skin cells and help with the discoloration (although slightly). But, the color difference will fade naturally as your skin goes through its usual shedding cycle.

For skin that's peeling and rough, try using a lotion or cream that has a repair mechanism. There are creams that can be used to rejuvinate the skin. You don't want to get in the habit of getting burned, of course, but sometimes it just happens. When there is damage, at least there are products that can help. One Web site that I like lists a bunch of skin care for excema, but it has some good info: excema

If you "rarely ever burn", like 100% of the population, then you haven't been doin it right. You damaged many many layers of skin. Stay out of the sun for a while to let the rest of your skin catch up to the white patches on your shoulders. Once everything matches, go out and "don't" burn some more. Good luck.

I just wanted to say everyone's advice is really great, it shows that you take pride in what you do(owning a salon) and you all are well educated in the do's and don't of healthy tanning. Hats Off!!
