Q: Can you exfoliate immediately after sunburn?
A: The skin after sunburn is very fragile and will become rough due to a large amount of ultraviolet radiation damage. Before the redness and inflammation of the skin have not subsided, do not exfoliate or apply whitening care products immediately to avoid allergic reactions. Instead, focus on easing inflammation, replenishing moisture and moisturizing the skin. After about 3 days to 1 week, exfoliate and maintain the skin according to the improvement of the skin condition. In addition, when exfoliating, even if you emphasize very delicate scrub products, the massage method should be very gentle. It can be washed in about 3 minutes to avoid stimulating the skin as much as possible. It is advisable to choose mild and efficient exfoliating ingredients to reduce the friction time with the face, so that the haze of the skin can be quickly removed and the follow-up maintenance can be better absorbed. If you are acne muscle, in addition to avoiding squeezing acne, acne or making a face, you should also temporarily stop using anti acne drugs, because most of them contain acids or exfoliating ingredients, which may worsen your sunburn problem.
Oil skin exfoliating granule scrub is more thorough
For oily skin with thick cuticle, it is not easy to peel off the aged cuticle, and once the pores are blocked, it is easier to cause “acne crisis”. The most common scrub or softener is more suitable for thick and rough skin, making exfoliation more thorough and effective.
Gentleness belongs to smooth small particles
The touch of plant fiber is softer
Scrub seems to be the most popular exfoliating skin care product. After updating, the particles have been changed from synthetic materials to natural plant or mineral fibers, and the touch is softer.
Moderate use, gentle massage
Even a very mild scrub should not be used too frequently. When using scrub, pay attention to avoid the eyes. Gently massage both hands with the action of drawing small circles from the inside out. Change the nose pit to draw circles from the outside to the inside.
Soften, rub and exfoliate cutin
Soften cutin, adsorb and peel
Most of these products contain softeners, which can adsorb on the keratinocytes on the surface layer, soften the aged horniness and do not touch the fresh horniness. And then take the aged horniness away from the skin during the cleaning process. However, although this kind of product does not have the rough feeling of scrub cream, it is inevitable that the peeling process will stretch the skin, which will easily lead to the loss of elasticity of the skin over a long period of time.
Gently rub the “dead skin” off
Because of its obvious effect of removing aged cutin in the use process, some people also commonly call this product “exfoliator”. When using, evenly apply it on the face to cover the color of the skin and avoid the eyes. After 15 to 20 minutes, gently rub the dried exfoliating element with your fingers, and then rub it all off according to the method from inside to outside and from bottom to top, so that the aged horniness will fall off.
Q: What’s the focus of maintenance if you want to whiten your skin after sunburn?
A: There are two stages in the tanning process, which can be divided into acute and chronic. Generally speaking, as long as you are exposed to the sun for about 1 to 2 hours, ultraviolet (UVA) will cause immediate and acute tanning, and you will soon see your skin turn black. While chronic tanning is caused by UVB, it will appear about 2 to 3 days later. When the skin is sunburned, the inflamed cells will stimulate the production of melanin, which will continuously precipitate and move to the stratum corneum with the metabolism of the skin in 3-7 days. At this time, it is advisable to gently remove the old and waste horniness of the skin, and then improve it with skin care products with whitening and moisturizing effects. If you want to whiten quickly, you can strengthen the use of whitening essence, whitening facial mask or ampoules at night to intensively dilute melanin and spots; At the same time, don’t forget to drink more water, eat more mung beans and job’s tears soup, which are rich in vitamin C, e and other vegetables and fruits, and are anti-inflammatory and whitening. When you go out, you must wear sunscreen, an umbrella and sunscreen clothes. Through all-round whitening maintenance, you can quickly restore your skin’s white luster.

Material: proper amount of tofu
1。 Wash your hands and put the tofu in the palm of your hand.
2。 Gently rub the tofu, then apply the tofu paste on your face and gently massage.
3. Wash after 15-20 minutes.
2、 Oral whitening
Vitamin C has whitening effect, but it is better to take vitamin C capsules or foaming vitamin C tablets, which will foam and dissolve when thrown into water, and eat them sooner or later. Because even if vitamin C is taken too much, it will be excreted in the urine and will not be stored in the body. It is OK to supplement it at night when necessary. As for vitamin C oral tablets or vitamin C soft candy, the effect is very limited.
