skin reddened by too much sun

For years I have lived with ruddy skin on my neck from getting too many sunburns watching my kids play youth sports ball decades ago. I would remember to use sunscreen on my face, but forget my neck or the front where my v-neck t-shirt exposed me to excessive sun. I recently tried some vitamin E cream I bought at the drug store. Wow, it is bleaching out the red to my normal, pale skin color. So if anyone else has sun damaged skin, try vitamin E cream or oil.

Thanks, Sheilajoyce! I'll try E cream or oil, whichever I find. I have to go to CVS tomorrow, so I'll look for it. How long did it take you to see a difference in the skin tone?

RE: skin reddened by too much sun

I used to be a sun bunny, and now I'm paying the price with red spots on my chest where my shirt didn't cover. I'm gonna try this. Thank you Sheilajoyce.

RE: skin reddened by too much sun

Woodie, improvement is gradual, but I could see a difference after the first day. My skin is red for the first several minutes when I first put it on--from the rubbing? I bought my cream at Long's Drug Store. It's called Nutra-E.

RE: skin reddened by too much sun

I can't wait to try this. I got a severe sunburn on my face as a kid, to this day, my upper cheeks are permanently red. I will give it a try. Thanks for the info. Is it still continuing to work for you?
