my leprosy tan

So I have been super white my whole life but this summer I spent almost all summer outside and got super tan and never once peeled. Everyone kept telling me I looked healthier and happier than ever. But then about a month ago I started taking birth control the day before I went to the beach with the family I work for. I burnt sooooooo bad despite slathering on sunscreen and Ive just kind of decided its because of the birth control one of the side effects is sun sensitivity. Anyways now its peeling and it looks like I have leprosy random dark and light spots everywhere but its not really peeling anymore its just stuck at this halfway point :( And it looks gross. Ive tried exfoliating and moisturizing and nothing is helping :((((((((

Ohh... Thats sad... But please don't use hard things, it may bruise your sensitive skin. Rather try something out of these,

Aw, poor thing! It will get better soon though. Try an aloe lotion with a hint of bronzer in it, that will help make your skin super soft and get rid of the peeling and will help offset the 'leprosy' look. I like either of these, and there are some 'After Sun' products with intense aloe formulas that are really good too. I might mix it up with a little of both actually, until you get the peeling under control.

Thank you ladies! I will definitley try y'alls ideas :) I've been freaking about it a bit especially since my dress is strapless. I'm already self conscious about my back because of all my acne scars I didn't need this on top of it.
