I love it! I think it is not only super cool, it is almost an accomplishment when you get a really big piece. Then again, I love to pop zits too. EW. I know.

My DREAM Job would be a "Pick-olo-Gist" there is such a thing right? If it can be picked or dug at, I am your gal!! My husband and child think I am quite strange!!

I think it's cool.  It also feels a whole lot better to peel off a section of skin than to flake for days & days.

Sadly, I flake.  I would rather peel. Smile

I have also loved peeling my sunburn and my family members and boyfriends sunburn especially if its in strips.

As kids we used to see who could pull the largest piece without it tearing.  I think it's really cool, especially when you sweat a little and there are bubbles of perspiration.  Now that is wierd, huh?
6/9/2010 3:16:34 PM
Emily United States
Definitely cool! I love peeling off my dead skin! It's gross, but I always try to get the biggest pieces possible!

connie United States
i think it feels great, i am a red-head and all my life i have either been ghost white or lobster red.  feels like someone is scratching your back in a real itching place.  i know a great help to take out the sting.  tea bags that have soaked in warm water, rub all over the burn.  the acid in the tea takes the sting out of the burn.

Me! Haha! But Kelli is right, that flakey stuff is no good Smile

Hate to admit it, but I've had an obsession with peeling sunburned skin for years. The bigger the patch the better. Thank you for making me know I don't need psychological help.

Who DOESN'T think it's cool to peel a sunburn???  I've never talked to anyone who wasn't fascinated with getting the biggest continuous piece of skin pulled off successfully!!!

i don't know what it is about it, but I have ALWAYS loved peeling off sunburnt skin! It's the neatest thing ever!! It's always a game to see how big a piece you can peel before it breaks off... sounds gross, but totally isn't! 35 years old and I still dig it... go figure?
6/9/2010 3:20:17 PM

Hi guys, Just wanted to comment on your poll. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about my daughter and a close friend of ours who has a skin condition called Ichthyosis. There are around 24 types. Skin that peels horribly is part of some . My friends daughter and my daughters best friend Hunter Steinitz has one of the worst or the worst types Harlequin. She knows the Lord. On June 15 on the National geographic channel there is a special on about skin disorders and Hunter is one of the stars. Check it out. My daughter has Sjogren Larsson syndrome another rare type  God bless more to share many testimonies. God is good all the time. Tammy Harper

Maybe not sunburns but remember when we were kids and we would put glue on our hands and let it dry and try and peal it off in one big sheet... Now that was cool Smile

Courtney United States
I got in trouble once for peeling it off and sticking it to the window of my moms car ... But I love to peel my but peeling someone wales would be gross

You really need to be careful about getting sunburns. It just takes one bad sunburn to get skin cancer. When I was younger, I had a really bad sunburn, real painful, lots of pealing. Maybe about 15 or 20 years later, I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma on my scalp. I had surgery and have been cancer free for 5 years now. My dermatologist said never go out in the sun without putting on plenty of sunscreen.

Fellow Peelers UNITE!!!!This adds a whole new dimension to "Give me some skin, man!" (giggle giggle). I love peeling! I even like that crackling sound it makes as you peel! I get super disappointed when the piece you are peeling that you just KNOW is going to peel down your entire arm, breaks...uuuugggghh!
It is safe to say that I love it! Friends even come to me on occasion to do it for them because they get grossed out doing it.
Scott, lean over here...you missed a piece...tee hee.

It's fun!

I don't get sun-burned, but my husband does.  And when he does, he lets me peel the skin.  I get so excited about it too. lol...there must be something wrong with that.  

Now I don't eat it like the weirdo in the Austin Powers movie, that's yuk! But peeling it is fun! Smile
