How To Properly Treat Your Skin After Sunburn

How-To-Properly-Treat-Your-Skin-After-Sunburn

At one point or another, everyone will get sunburn. It can be annoying, but with the right actions taken in a timely manner, you can get through this period much more easily. 

Get Out of Sun as Soon as Possible

You should always be aware of how much sun your skin has been exposed to. Try to limit damage by wearing sunscreen and staying in the shade when you can. Once you notice your skin getting a little red, you should seek cover immediately before the problem gets worse.

Take a Cold Bath

To relieve some of the discomfort, you will want to take a cool bath. After you step out of the tub, apply a moisturizer to help your skin trap some of the moisture. Over the next few days, you will want to continue taking baths and applying moisturizer.

Drink Water

When your body has to fight off sunburn, it needs more water than usual. Increase your water intake during the recovery period. You can also take some aspirin if the discomfort becomes too much to handle.

Protect Your Skin 

While your skin is recovering, you may still need to go outside. Wear long-sleeve clothing to protect your skin from further damage. If possible, you may want to stay inside for the time being.

Leave Blisters Alone

An unfortunate side effect of sunburn is blistering. In the event your skin develops blisters, you do not want to pop them. This can lead to an infection. Leave them alone and allow them to heal on their own.

For most people, sunburn is something that will go away on its own after a few days. However, if you are worried your sunburn has gotten too severe, you should not hesitate to contact a doctor to get your skin looked at.
