How do I turn this sun burn into a sun tan?
I was outside today trying to get a tan and I’m red. How do I prevent pealing? How can I make it a tan? And we have a aloe plant. Should I just break a little piece off and run it on the burnt area?
Any info would help thanks.

Chilled aloe vera will sooth the irritation caused by a sunburn. You can break the aloe plant and squeeze out the juice from it and rub that on your burn and that will help soothe it too. Good moisturization is really important if you want to prevent pealing. Any lotion with Vitamin E will keep skin moisturized. Lotion with hemp seed extract is also really good for keeping skin hydrated and preventing peeling. From what I learned in training for my Smart Tan Certification is that a sunburn doesn’t really turn into a tan. Any skin that wasn’t burnt will be tan and visible when your burn fades though. If you want to mask the redness and make it look more like a tan you can do that by using a sunless tanner. Try using Hempz Shimmer Bronze moisturizer. You can get it at Ulta but I’m not sure exactly how much it retails for (I think around $ 30). If you don’t want to get that though, any drug store gradual self tanner will work just as well. L’Oreal Sublime Glow is actually a good one that has Vitamin E and retails for about $ 9.

Hello,
Just let it get air, it will hurt bad for a little bit, but let it get air, with nothing on it after you wipe a little aloe on it, then let it be, let it sting, it will go away sooner, the more air you let get to it.

How effective is Aloe Vera, and if effective enough, how long does it take to help help a burn?

I got sunburned today and my shoulders and back were really red. I tore off a part of my aloe vera plant and used it, but I’m not sure how effective it will actually be.
