Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to give you some tips on how you can stop sunburn from peeling. Well, the easiest way to stop it from peeling is to not get sunburned in the first place. Basically a sunburn is your skin's defense mechanism against UV damage. And, you can pretty much guarantee if you've had a lot of bad burns in your life, you're going to have a lot of premature aging, and you're probably going to end up with, maybe, skin cancer. But, if maybe it was unavoidable and you were out in the sun too long without protection and you did get some sunburn, and it's starting to peel, one of the easiest things to do is to get an 'after-sun repairer'. I'm just going to put a little bit on your hand. This is actually, not open, but I can show it, what it basically does is it helps to heal the burn. It's also going to help prevent the amount of damage that a sunburn can cause, so it's going to help prevent against hyper-pigmentation, skin damage. It can't prevent against cancer, but it can prevent against the damaging effects that UV light can cause on the skin. So you see, it's just like a balm, it's very cooling, very soothing. It has aloe in it. It's also going to have a lot of botanicals in it that are going to cool and calm down the skin, and it's also going to help to soothe any of that peeling. Another thing that you can do is use a, just dry skin gel to help to minimize the effects of the peeling. And basically that's just a gel that's going to lightly exfolliate without irritation. And it's also going to hydrate, but it's not anything occlusive like a butter, or like a shea butter or a cocoa butter, because you don't want to use anything like that 'cause it's going to trap heat in, and that can lead to infection. So those are some tips that you can use to stop sunburn peeling.
