Hello,

Thanks for writing in.

Suntan fades off from 6 months to one year depending on the skin type and the original climate the skin adapted to.

Never apply Clop-G on the face.

Feel confident about your looks. Don't worry whether your skin in tanned for not. I am writing down few tips for you anyway.

. Follow up with aloe vera, preferably pure aloe vera gel .

• Gentle skin peels can get rid of tanned skin. Choose the right peel system that gently exfoliates your skin and stimulates regeneration.


• Apply the mixture of raw turmeric and cream of milk on the face and wash it after 20 minutes. It will make your skin fair.

• Make a mixture of 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice and glycerin and apply it on the dark spots to get rid of them.

. Daily use cleanser for your face and when you go out use sunscreen lotion.. do fruit massage..

If they do not help you need to see a Dermatologist for peeling procedures.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care.

Regards.

Hi,
Once you have sunburn, the damage is done — although it may take 12 to 24 hours after sun exposure to know the full extent and severity of sunburn.
If blisters form, don't break them. You'll only slow the healing process and increase the risk of infection. If needed, lightly cover blisters with gauze.
While your skin is peeling, continue to use moisturizing cream.
To prevent future episodes of sunburn, use sunscreen frequently and liberally.
Apply hydroquinone based preparation at night.
A visit to dermatologist will allow confirmation of diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
Regards.

Hi,
First line of treatment is to cover area while going out.
consult skin specialist and show dr your lisions so he can diagnose as sunburn.
there are many creams but clinical examination is important.
Its all due to low immunity, so you are getting reaction. Improve your immunity by consuming healthy food, fruits, vegetabls.
One ayurvedic oil Eladi oil can be usefull in all skin disease. Apply while going out.

Dear Patient,
First of all never apply Clop-G on the face.
You apply a good sunscreen in the morning & than every 3-4 hourly.You should also wear a hat or use umbrella while going out. However mild steroids like Desowen lotion can be applied for few days on the face for speedy recovery.
