Sunburn and You

by Jon
(Georgia, USA)

It happens every year, and then some. Some are worse than others and some not at all.



There are many ways to prevent them, all kinds of lotions for all kinds of skins.


There is never a sure fire way to ensure that your skin will be protected and not burn, but at least there is a plethora of treatments at your reach, should your skin need it.


Once you realize you are burned is when you should seek aforementioned treatment.


Items that are cooling gel, contain lidocain and aloe vera barbadensis are the best things to get.


The aloe help heal and cool, and the lidocain helps to medicate the burn.


Some of the best treatments are precautionary measures, though. For instance Hats, sundresses, wraps and strong sunblock will do just fine.


Also, watching the news for the UV Index and watching the clock to monitor how long you spend outside.


You can never take too many measures to ensure the safety of your skin, or a loved one.


Remember to lotion all exposed areas of skin before heading out, to keep your days on the beach fun.


If you're skiing don't forget the snow reflects and can burn as well. Make sure to wear lip balm-not gloss or chap, as well as sunblock for the face.
