In brief: Avoid sun

Avoid sun exposure, stay indoors.
Apply lots of moisturizer (ie: Aquaphor, Vaseline, Cetaphil or CeraVe lotion or cream) until skin completely healed. Aquaphor can cause acne but can be soothing for raw or cracked or burned skin. Avoid makeup or sunscreen until skin completely healed. Use SPF 30 or higher with zinc oxide, hat, sunglasses. Start bleaching cream after skin completely healed.
