I am so sunburned and need help! I’m in Mexico and I was sunbathing when I fell asleep with my huge Prada
butterfly sunglasses on and now look at me! I’m going to have to hide from cameras for days. I usually never get red, I
always get dark. It hurts! Do u guys have any remedies I can
try to help ease the pain and get rid of the redness?

Everyone here is making fun of me! Look at Reggie’s teammate and friend Bobby starting with the jokes. My whole body is burned but my face looks the worst because of the glasses. I will never wear sunglasses when sunbathing again!

    You poor thing! OMG I know how painful that is, it happened to me this past summer in Cuba.
    Remedy:Do NOT take hot or even slightly hot showers, your skin will be sloughed off [NOT GOOD]. Apply aloe vera to your whole body and face like 5 times a day.

    Hey Kim….that really is a terrible sunburn!….Try rubbing fresh cucumber on your skin…and aloe vera always helps aswell! Hope you recover fast.

    omg kim what happened, you should put on some aloe on it refreshes your skin. trust me it works get some at the supermarket. make sure its not rotten.

  5. I’m so sorry that had to happen. I heard aloe vera is good for sunburns. I’m lucky I don’t get sunburns just tans. I hope you get better soon! And I love how you’re not afraid of showing your fans what would be embarrassing to others.

    Also, for a perfect flawless bronzed glowing tan, don’t lay directly in the sun. Lay on your beach chair under a shade umbrella/hut. The sun beams will reflect off the sand and directly onto you and you’ll tan evenly and without the risk of burning!

    That Sucks Kim!!! There is a product from Clinque called after sun rescue balm. It helps sooo much. It cools, takes the sting away and helps to prevent peeling.

      I am so used to tanning safely with spray tans and creams, I forgot how dangerous it is! And I fell asleep! I can’t believe this happened! Never again!!!!

        hey atleast you learned, don’t worry there are sooo many remedies for sun burns now a days, you’ll be fine !

        When you get home and your skin heals, I would see a dermatologist. Your body will be fine. You might have uneven skin tones on your face. This is something that you will probably want your derm to take care of. aloe vera is great for sunburn relief.

        What happened to your pledge with Jergens. This a quote from your previous blog. “vowing to get your glow in the dark with a product, not from the sun.” Remember you are doing this to pledge so they donate $1 for every person who avoids the sun

  10. Hey Kim,
    Same thing happened to me in San Juan last month. I understand your pain. Use LOTS of Aloe Vera… it helps a lot. Feel better. :)
