If you enjoy being outdoors as much as I do, then it’s very likely that you’ve experienced a sunburn or two during your lifetime. And, boy oh boy, are they hard to forget. The pain, the redness, the peeling…it’s a disaster for your skin. The one you always look for after a sunburn is a way to help soothe your poor aching skin.
Unprotected sun exposure is a key contributor to skin damage, premature aging and even skin cancer. But let’s face it, even those of us who take every precaution to protect our skin against the harmful UVA and UVB rays can sometimes mess up. And when we get a sunburn, we sure do pay the price. So, if you forgot to take cover in the shade, didn’t wear your sunscreen or simply forgot to reapply after a quick dip in the pool, I have a few tips to help calm your skin. And remember, for any serious burn, seek medical attention.
5 Tips to Help Soothe Sunburn
If you do experience sunburn…
Get out of the sun right away. The longer your skin is exposed, the more damage you may get. This exposure can ultimately increase your chances of skin cancer. Take cover immediately.
Check for blisters. If your skin has blistered as a result of sunburn, then you should consider seeking medical attention as soon as possible.
No one wants to derail his or her summer plans because of sunburn. Go out and enjoy. Just remember to stay covered up and in the shade, wear an SPF 30 broad spectrum sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. If your skin starts to get red, remove yourself from the sun. Hey, there are a lot of indoor activities that are fun, too. Think movies, bowling, mani-pedi and my favorite—shopping.
