Yes! Avoid sun as far as possible. Always wear full sleeves when you feel your skin has sunburns on them. Cover yourself to avoid further damage and make sure to apply a sunscreen for more protection.
Washing the area is as important as applying the healing gel. Avoid warm water and bath in lukewarm or cool water to calm the area. Avoid scrubbing or shaving the portion and go for a very light cleansing gel to make sure the area is clean and hydrated at the same time.
Use after-sun products
After-sun products are not just moisturisers but they protect your skin from the harmful effects of tanning and sunburns. They act as a treatment procedure and if used regularly, treat skin and make it really soft and healthy. Traditionally, you can go for Aloe Vera and Cucumber Ice Cubes and apply them.
Don’t rush back into the sun
Even if your sunburns are kind of treated now, it is important to maintain a distance from the sun. Make sure to wear loose clothes and hats while going out and also apply loads of sunscreens. Add a sunglass for that chic look!
Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking water is of absolute necessity in every aspect but when it comes to sunburns it has even more significance. If your body is hydrated, it will repair the skin from within and will make your skin feel healthy. Water is a must
