My prom is coming up, and i dont wanna be all different colors. But i also dont want to go tanning and get burnt again. I just want to know how long i should wait to go tanning or layout.
Wait until your skin is completely healed, without any redness, peeling, or burning/itchy feelings. And start slow when you start tanning again – if you use a bed, drop down a level from where you were before. If you go outside, lay out for a shorter length of time
You need to wait until the burn has fully healed and you have completely stopped peeling. Going out in the sun again or back to a tanning bed is burning already-burned skin and not giving it a chance to heal. That can leave scarring.
Ask me how I know this. I still have burn scars across my stomach and this happened years ago. I had second degree burns (blisters) from my shoulders to my knees.
Don’t go tanning again until you stop peeling. I have made that mistake before. and hopefully your burn will turn into a tan.
I’d say to stay on the safe side 2 weeks. if you wanna go into “danger zone” a week.
