I used cocoa butter lotion on my face and body but I am constantly in the sun, does that make me burn easier? Also should I used aloe lotions instead?

USE SUNSCREEN: Any kind of oil like cocoa butter will magnify the sun's rays and make you more likely to burn. You should use a labeled sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every 2-3 hours, more often if swimming or sweating. Aloe will help AFTER you burn, but does little to prevent and it is far better never to burn. ...Read more

Most scars overtime though do improve, the body usually does a good job at healing itself. ...Read more
