Tips to Help Relieve Sunburn
I love summer and I love the sunshine, but if you're like me and have fair skin sun protection is a must.
However, I'm not perfect and slip up from time to time and get sunburned. Ouchie.
Here are a few tips to help relieve sunburn.
1.Take an Aspirin
Helps in relieving the pain caused by sunburn.
2. Keep It Cool
Use after sun cooling gels or aloe.
3. Stay Hydrated, Moisturized
Drink lots of water, and use a heavy moisturizer like Vaseline.
4. Resist the Urge to Peel
Let this happen naturally. Peeling the skin can leave a scar, and can even lead to an infection.
5. Stay Under Cover
If you have a blistering sunburn, you should stay out of sun for a week. The skin is already damaged and more sun will make it worse. If you have to go out, wear a hat and protective clothing. The best protection comes from fabric that is wooly, dark and a tight weave -- not ideal for 90 degree heat. But new synthetic fabrics are light weight, quick to dry and offer up to 50 SPF.
6. Don't Forget
The tops of the feet, shoulders, nose and ears are the body parts most often missed during sunscreen slathering.
