4. What is the reason the skin peels off after sun-bathing?

Peeling after a sun-bath is your body’s way of getting rid of damaged cells. This is necessary because cells damaged by the sun are at risk of becoming cancerous.

5. How can I stop the peeling?

Use a moisturizer after bathing that contains aloe vera, which will cool your skin, reduce inflammation and slow the peeling.
