  • Lots of aloe gel and lotion really helps prevent peeling - no 100% guarantee though.

  • Well first let me say that I truly do hope you start wearing sunscreen so you don't end up with skin cancer! Secondly, Aloe Vera lotion all the time, as soon as you feel 'dry'. That's what my aunt always uses....she doesn't care about whether she ends up with skin cancer apparently because she's always laying out in the sun and burning like a lobster.

  • if you burn alot, some of us burn even using sunscreen all day long, than i would also suggest getting an aloe plant. you can just rib the end of a stem off and use the gel straight from the plant and its much better than the stuff you buy in the stores, and then the stem just grows right back. love mine!

  • Aloe jelly; best from a plant, but you can also get a tube (be sure this is the only ingredient)

  • One other thought; sunburn makes you much more suspectible to skin cancer; be sure to check youself every month, and see a dermatologist once a year.
