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.
LONDON - June 25, 2021 - PRLog -- Sunburn – what exactly we are talking about?

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.

Symptoms of sunburn:
  • Changes in skin tone, such as pinkness or redness
  • Swelling
  • Skin that feels warm or hot to the touch
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Small fluid-filled blisters, which may break
  • Headache, fever, nausea and fatigue, if the sunburn is severe
  • Eyes that feel painful

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.
  • cool down the affected area of your skin – use cool, damp compresses or a bag of ice wrapped in a towel. You can take a cool bath or shower to cool your sunburned skin. This will help draw the heat from the skin and reduce redness.
  • Apply a light moisturiser with healing ingredients (don't apply anything if there are blisters on your skin!)
  • Get a rest – when you sleep your body's production of certain cytokines that help your body manage inflammation. This disruption can negatively affect your body's ability to heal itself.
  • Avoid additional sun exposure. Exposing a sunburn to more UV rays can further damage your skin. If you have to go out, try to cover your sunburn with clothing and wear sunscreen.
  • Stay hydrated. Sunburns draw moisture away from your skin.

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.
