As the face of St. Tropez, it was important her skin was not only camera-ready for famed photography duo Mert & Marcus, but that her near-naked body literally glowed.

1. Use a cool washcloth. Run a washcloth under the tap, and soak it in cold water. Wring it out and apply to the burn to help instantly cool it down. Avoid ice, as this can shock your skin in a bad way.
2. Apply aloe vera. Soothe and hydrate the burn with aloe vera — just like if you were to get a sunburn.
3. Take ibuprofen. Taking a dose of Advil can help with the inflammation and the pain.
4. Apply a hydrocortisone cream. Whip out a tube of 0.5 percent hydrocortisone, which can also help with inflammation and discomfort.
5. Keep it moisturised. As the skin starts to heal, apply moisturiser on it to keep it hydrated and eventually slough away the damaged skin.
