There is nothing worse than a sunburn. Not only are they uncomfortable but they can cause damage to surface of your skin. Here at Forever Young Body Clinic, health is one of our primary cares, which is why we encourage sunless tanning as an alternative to laying out in the sun. That being said, sunburns happen! Here are a few at home remedies you can use to care for your sunburns this summer.
- Take cold showers or baths frequently
- With a cool washcloth, apply lotions like aloe vera or chamomile to the burned area. Hydrocortisone Cream may also help relieve both the pain and swelling often associated with a sunburn.
- If your sunburn has reached its peeling phase, there is little you can do to stop it. Hydrate the affected areas of your skin with lotion or coconut oil multiple times a day to kick start the healing process.
It is important to ease back into the sun after a burn. Give your skin the chance to fully recover and heal before exposing it to direct sunlight. Looking tan is such a confidence booster, but there are ways to get color without compromising your skin. If you have never had a spray tan or are looking to try it, feel free to give us a call.
