Sunburn? Relief your skin with skincare
Sometimes we forgot to apply SPF on our skin or fell asleep in a lawn chair and we know the consequences – sunburned skin.
A sunburn is skin damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun.
Sunburn is red, painful skin that feels hot to the touch. It usually appears within a few hours after too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from sunshine or artificial sources, such as sunlamps. Home remedies can usually provide sunburn relief, but sunburn may take days to fade.

Heal the sunburned skin
You have to give your skin time to heal from a sunburn. It takes time for our body to replace the skin that was damaged. You can help your skin with the healing process by following our Skin Expert's advice.
Prevention is the key
Remember to protect your skin every day and especially when you are planning to enjoy the sun a little bit more. Apply a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every day to all parts of the body that will be exposed to the sun. If you going outside apply your SPF 15 to 20 minutes before going outside. Remember to reapply your SPF every 2-3 hours, especially if you are outside a lot, perspiring or if you have been swimming.
