Melanin is the pigment responsible for the colour of our skin. Tanning occurs due to an increase in melanin pigmentation in response to UV rays.

Overexposure to the sun can lead to sunburn, skin peeling, and even skin cancer due to DNA mutations.

Skin recovery after tanning varies from person to person. Proper skincare, including protecting the skin from further UV damage, is recommended during the recovery process.

Skin Recovery After Tanning

After tanning, it's important to cool the skin to reduce discomfort. Using cold sheet masks or cold towels is advised, but using ice is discouraged.
