If one's skin was not fried but just gradually tanned, new skin cells will replace the tanned skin at the normal rate that skin cells replace themselves. Otherwise, if one were to keep old skin, she would look 100 years-old very rapidly. ...Read more

Unless you are in a long-term monogamous relationship where you are sure your partner and their past ones are infection free, use condom. ...Read more
