have olivey skin, dont normally burn.... Just back from a week in Tenerife, fell asleep on the first day and have burnt shoulders/back sad

Going to a wedding on Friday and I look a fucking mess, shoulders and back peeling big style... I look like a bloody leper.

Have tried exfoliating and am slapping on moisturiser 4 times a day but it's just not working.

How can I make it good by Friday? Am wearing a black dress too... Gonna look uber attractive covered in flakey skin sad

Dh has a sander....

Try sweet almond oil which will be far more beneficial to your skin and deeper penetrating than regular moisturisers. Failing that, I would recommend Palmers Cocoa Butter Lotion.
