Taking the Sting out of a Sunburn

Pomerene Marketing - Thursday, July 02, 2020

The American Academy of Dermatology (2020) recommends these 6 tips for treating a sunburn:

  • Take frequent cool baths or showers to ease the pain
  • Use a moisturizer that includes aloe-Vera to help sooth sunburned skin.
  • Consider taking ibuprofen to help decrease swelling, redness and discomfort.
  • Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration
  • If your skin blisters, let the blisters heal. Do not pop the blisters, as they will help protect your skin heal and protect you from infection.
  • Protect sunburned skin while it heals by wearing clothes that cover skin when in the sun.

Remember that a result of skin getting too much exposure from the sun’s ultraviolet rays can affect long-lasting harm to the skin and increase your risk for getting skin cancer.
