WHAT to do when you have got sunburn?

WHAT to do when you have got sunburn?
OHMYGOSSIP – Hopefully everybody knows how important it is to protect yourself from the sun with various products and clothes. Sometimes it is difficult to escape a sunburn, that’s why dermatologist Heather Rogers gives the best advice on  what to do afterwards.
1. Alleviate the pain
In order to control the pain caused by sunburn, Rogers recommends taking a painkiller, then take a cool bath and place a wet patch on it many times a day. Remember to be careful that you don’t cool down too much or don’t get too hot. Once you have sunburn, the organism cannot control the temperature so well anymore.
2. Use a moisturizing cream
Put on a very nourishing cream. Timing plays a great role here – apply the cream when the skin is moist, then the skin will lock more moist and heal sooner. Apply cream as often as possible.
3. Hydrate yourself internally
Creams that are applied on the skin are certainly good, but it is as important to drink lots of water. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily to replace the dehydrated volume. Try to avoid drinks that advance dehydration – alcohol and coffee.
4. Don’t injure the skin
When you have got serious sunburn and there are blisters, do not touch them. Blisters are a natural patch that helps heal. Sunburn that has turned into blisters increases the risk of skin cancer and when such sunburn occurs often then you would need to go and have your skin checked.
5. Hide from direct sunlight

This may seem understandable but it is difficult to accomplish during a vacation. Skin that has sunburn is an even more sensitive target for the UV-rays, thus make sure that you always have a hat with you and clothes that protect you from the sunlight.
