Try to avoid sun as much as possible until the wedding and slather that stuff with aloe vera.  Hopefully it won’t tan!

When you burn do you peel? I am extemely pale and honestly I find that I “tan” when I try to keep myself from peeling after a burn. If I aloe up and don’t allow it to peel is when my skin tans. Just my unscientific observations.

Use plenty of Aloe Vera and moisturizer on it for the next few days, and drink some extra water. Then, if it’s healed by this weekend, try to get just an hour or so of sun (apply sunscreen extra carefully this time, obviously!) to help even things out a bit. I’d stay away from the sunless tanner–chances are it’ll tint your skin a slightly different shade from your natural tan or you’ll get some streaking. You’re better off trying to conceal the splotch with a bit of foundation. If you’re having your makeup done professionally, you could try calling your MUA to see if she has any thoughts or advice. If you’re doing your own, be sure to practice and take photos in different lighting.

Don’t worry too much–you have plenty of time, and it will fade!

Take some ibuprofen to help with the inflammation, keep your chest covered at ALL TIMES (crew neck shirts for the next 2 weeks, no V’s).  Maybe book an airbrush tan?  That way the tech can avoid your chest area.
