Sunburn treatment and home remedies
In most respects, sunburn should be treated as for Burns. The first thing to do is to avoid further exposure to the sun until symptoms have been cleared. Severe sunburn can produce bad blistering, dehydration, and sunstroke, and occasionally people have an allergic reaction to the sun’s ultraviolet rays
The Risk of Skin Cancer
An increasingly frequent sequel to excessive exposure to the sun is skin cancer and reduction in the Earth’s ozone layer makes this likely to become dramatically more common in future years, even in countries some distance away from the Equator.
In any case, the sun has an aging effect on the skin, so enjoy it but use good suntan creams and after-sun moisturizing creams, and keep out of the midday sun if possible. Remember: sunbeds do not protect against sunburn so you still need to take it carefully when out in hot sunshine and use the appropriate sun protection factor (SPF) lotion.
