every year when i get a really good tan, my shins crack like crazy paving and then over the next few days they look like fish scales before they finally peel. I always envy people whos skin looks so good with a tan even weeks after. I use lots of good moisturisers and a use an exfoliating glove to try and prevent it from happening, but every year it seems to get worse. my mum had the same problem and now my sons skin looks the same after alot of sun and it splits. This makes it sting when he goes in the salt water. sad........
