5. Can you avoid a suntan after getting a sunburn?
Suntans and sunburns are two separate subjects altogether. Suntans are caused by melanin which protects our skin from the harmful UV rays, while pain is caused by a protein called CXCL5, which stimulates pain receptors. Because melanin is gathered at the spot of the onset where the UV rays strike, it is not possible to avoid a suntan after a sunburn.
