How long does it take to fully peel?

Asked by xStarlightx (411points) July 7th, 2010

I just started peeling from my sunburn on Monday and I want to know how long it’ll fully take.

I have my BF coming down on the 12th so I’m hopping by then it’ll be gone.

What do you guys think?

It depends how badly you managed to get burned. I’m sure your BF will be so entertained by your hopping, he won’t notice the peeling skin.

Haha well its more of the fact that I’m going to be wearing tanks and stuff so I don’t want my arms or shoulders looking all gross and pealing

There most likely will be some dis-colorization. But all the skin peeling off should be gone in the next six days. I wouldn’t worry. </pale Irish man>

Depending on the burn. Two weeks. Get a bath sponge to help the process.

Just be gentle with it. ;-)

Boy did I burn the tops of my feet Monday. Wore sandals in the sun too long. I am the man with the crimson feet, but they dont hurt as bad as yesterday.

It may take a little longer than the 12th. Don’t worry.
