Tips for treating sunburn

Apr 05, 2022

Do you know what's the worst? Getting a sunburn.

We're not talking about a little redness—we're talking about downright blistering, dry-as-a-bone, peeling, cracking pain that makes you feel like your skin is going to fall right off.

Not only does it hurt like… well, like you've been burned by the sun, but it also makes you feel like a total loser. We all know the drill: wear sunscreen and reapply if we've been in the sun for a while. So why is it that every time we go on vacation we end up with an embarrassing lobster tan?

And what do we do once we finally get back from our sun-filled trip? Scour the internet for tips on how to treat our burn ASAP. If you're one of those people who have been struggling with sunburn treatment lately, here are some surefire remedies:

Apply aloe vera (or any other cooling lotion) as soon as possible after getting burnt. This will help keep your skin from drying out too much and will give it some much-needed moisture to help heal your burn.

Drink more water.

Drink more water. It's important that you stay hydrated when you have sunburn because your body will need all the fluids it can get to heal itself properly. And it doesn't hurt that drinking water will help reduce inflammation as well!

Apply sunscreen before you go outside.

Apply sunscreen before going outside again, with an SPF of at least 15. Make sure it's one that protects against both UVA and UVB rays so that your skin has protection from future burns too! You'll want something
