It is important to understand a sunburn is a real burn. It occurs right in the skin surface because of the damage coused by ultraviolet light. One of the tiny blood vessels just under the surface. That allows more blood to flow to the skin, making the skin look red and feel warm. It has happened to me, too, and its made me feel warm all over. We Should be more careful about getting too much sun. Getting a deep tan every summer looks healthy But actually it is not. Ultraviolet light is likely to make your skin less flexible and more wrinled it makes your skin look Older.

How to treat a sunburn.

  1. Use the succulent aloe vera plant. Cut it down the length of the leaf and open it, revealing the inner portion of it. Rub the clear gelatinous part, over the burned area. Repeat as often as you like. This is better than most aloe vera treatments that you can purchase because it’s clear and you know what’s in it. Use very mild lotion before bed at night to help keep the skin moisturized.
  2. Wear loose-fitting cotton clothing that will not irritate the affected areas. Other materials, especially man-made ones like polyester, can rub very harshly against the skin and make a burn feel much worse. If it is summer vacation and you are able to stay at home, do so, and wear as little clothing as possible to keep it from hurting your skin. Try putting a soft cotton blanket over the couch or bed to keep your skin from rubbing against upholstery.
  3. Use an anti-inflammatory agent like ibuprofen if you have a headache, slight fever or chills.
  4. Noxema facial cleanser, sold in blue tubs, is extremely effective at removing the heat and the sting from a bad sunburn. Rub as much as possible onto the burned skin. Do not wash off; allow to soak in. Reapply as often as possible.
  5. Use a cool, damp cloth with skim milk and rest it on the spots where you are burned. The coolness takes out the initial fire, and the milk creates a protein film that helps ease the ensuing discomfort.
  6. Drink water, juice or sports drinks to replace body fluids. When you have a sunburn, you get dehydrated easily.
  7. Bathe with tepid water and avoid soap on the affected area, which can cause irritation. Sometimes a cool or luke warm shower can take away the pain and itchiness.
  8. You can also try taking a bath with green tea. The tannin in the tea draws out some of the pain and can soothe the redness.
  9. If your burn is extremely painful, a spray from most drugstore/chemists with lidocane (a topical anesthetic) will help it be bearable until it heals.
  10. 10- You can make a paste from baking soda and a little bit of water and put it on the sunburnt area. Remove when it’s completely dry and starts to flake. May help cool down skin.
  11. Stay out of the sun until the burn fades.
  12. Above all, the next time you are in the sun, wear sunscreen!
