Reviewed by Dr. Hun Kim Thao
You may want to whiten your skin due to a dark skin and painful sunburn after a joyful picnic visit to the sea. So, how to whiten skin after sunburn and why does your skin still get sunburned and tanned even after applying sunscreen?
Let’s talk with Dermatologist Hun Kim Thao at Grace Skincare Clinic to find out how to whiten skin after sunburn, and get back to smooth and fair skin quickly and safely with Vitamin C.
Alarming symptoms of sunburn
Sunburn and tan are caused by exposure to the sun. However, the degree of sunburn varies depending on the type of skin that each person has, the intensity of sunlight and time of sun exposure. Common symptoms of sunburn include:
- Skin turns red
- Skin feels warm or hot when touched
- Pain, tension or itching on the kin
- Blistering skin
- The appearance of the water bubbles which are easy to burst out on skin
- Headache, fever, cold or fatigue in case of severe sunburn.
Remedies for sunburn and tanned skin
According to dermatologist Hun Kim Thao, to quickly and scientifically treat sunburn, you should first stop sun exposure to avoid worsening the condition.
After that, you should soothe your skin by soaking it in water with moderate temperature, showering or bathing with cool water, or applying a towel sucking with cool water on the skin (do not apply ice directly to the skin to alleviate the burn. At this time, you should avoid using soap because it can worsen your skin irritation.
You can moisturize your skin with aloe vere lotion, gel or hydrocortisone 0,5-1% cream (please be cautious if applying on face) and drink plenty of water.
How to whiten skin after sunburn?
Whitening is the first priority of everyone, but do you know that skin also needs some time to recover?
Dermatologist Hun Kim Thao said: “Sunburn is caused by strong impact of UVA and UVB rays without protection of sunscreen. UVB rays affect directly on the skin surface, causing DNA damage, darkening and burning the skin. UVA rays penetrate deep into the epidermis of the skin, damaging the collagen, causing skin elasticity to decrease, and making it susceptible to wrinkles and tan. To effectively alleviate sunburn, you should treat skin with natural ingredients such as cold milk, coconut oil, aloe vera and such on clean skin and only if you are not sensitive to these ingredients. You can also use non-greasy moisturizers to increase effectiveness. ”
Moisturize & drink plenty of water – Excellent remedies to treat sunburn and dark tan recommended by dermatologist
For some mild cases of sunburn and tan, you can choose some natural ingredients to them at home. Some ingredients are quite safe, such as: sugarless yogurt, green tea, oatmeal … but make sure your skin does not get irritated by them before using.
In addition, some mild moisturizing creams (under the guidance of dermatologist) can be used as a good solution to boost skin moisture. And do not forget to drink plenty of water to replenish “bodyguards” from within.
Vitamin C – the secret to fight tanned skin and restore skin beauty after sunburn
Vitamin C is widely known as a magical ingredient for beauty! Vitamin C is proven in all scientific studies for its ability to increase resistance, restore, whiten, brighten, rejuvenate and strengthen the skin. Proper use of vitamin C not only helps this nutrient penetrate deeply into the skin, but also quickly helps you regain healthy skin, restore sunburned skin, brighten skin tone and slow the aging process.
According to Dermatologist Hun Kim Thao – Medical Director at Grace Skincare Clinic: “One of the best skincare treatments for sunburn being used by Grace Skincare Clinic is vitamin C electrolysis combined with skincare with natural ingredients.
Good absorption of Vitamin C has the ability to suppress melanin, thereby actively support the treatment of dark skin, reduce dark pigmentation, brighten and smoothen the skin. If used properly and adequately, vitamin C is actually a “miracle medicine” that helps to reduce the appearance of dark skin and restore a more radiant complexion.
So what is vitamin C electrolyte? Why is it more effective than other methods? Vitamin C electrolyte is a method of delivering vitamin C into the skin in the form of electrolyte transfer via a specialized machine.
This technique was invented in Japan in 2002 and has become popular with dermatologists all over the world. The vitamin C used here is concentrated vitamin C that penetrates deeply under the surface of the skin, activates the melanin base while nourishing the skin, and accelerates the recovery process. Electrophoresis has been shown to be more effective than conventional masking or vitamin C supplementation.

I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"
This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.
I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.

Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done. Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie
I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!
Grace Skincare Clinic has a great and friendly service and that have a centrally located clinic. I highly recommend them!
The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!
I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend. I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao instructed and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.
as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
