Well as people walked past me as i was casually laying off, i casually made sure my arm covered this toxin portal patch,the rest of me is spotty so it may look like acne ? :) ,i went swimming into the sea,anyone came close to me i just submerged my flakes into the water but, i know no one cares, its all in the mind :)

John. It looks kinda red because of the sunburn, but living in SA I can say that by burning my P up to a certain degree of course, has helped it to disappear. Now I'm not saying go fry yourself! But a bit of good sun does help. moisturize often!

Hello Michelle , i wanted it to burn,baby burn , make it disappear fast in one night haha :) it will disappear now i have burnt it to hell, may take a few days ? :)

After a good dip in the ocean I would hit it with lemon ๐Ÿ‹ if your burnt they make an affordable aloe vera / lidocaine sunburn gel I swear by..

I've almost completely cleared my P this summer with a good amount of sun and lemon juice. 2 to 3 times a week of getting my self in the sun. So happy with the result :) hope you see some similar results! Also the old catch 22 of the more you get into the sun the better it gets and the more you want to get into it. Building up the courage at first is the hardest part!

thank you Michelle,, its around 30 odd miles away so not too far to travel by my car, its around 45 minutes drive depending what time i go, i am not too sore today thankfully, not as bad as yesterday, i did slap a lot of moisturiser on last night thanks :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

John, it will be great if you can do this weekly. Not burning but getting some sun. Even when its not that hot, the sun gives enough rays to help your P and I'm not even talking about the fresh air. Our skin needs both.

So true Michelle,i have just seen some staff at work and they said SH.T what happend to you? haha, i have taken paracetamol and will go the pharmacy when they open and get some goodies to help it , i was only there for 2 hours,sea was nice and warm though was cold at first trying to get in :) Thanks Michelle :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Oh John. I'm sure you feel like you're glowing in the dark now. Looking like a lobster! 2 hours was a long time and I can imagine how you feel. Is the paracetamol good for your P? Good luck and I hope you're feeling better later :)
