Sunburnt… Ouch!

This weather is perfect for tanning but sometimes it is hard to escape the horrible effects...SUNBURN! Here are a few tips to relieve sunburn pain.

·       Take ibuprofen immediately after realizing you've been burned will help reduce pain and redness.

·       Drink ice cold water to keep your bodies temperature down.

·       To decrease the itch, apply hydrocortisone over the area once or twice daily.

·       Wear loose clothing to help skin breathe. Tight fitting clothing will slow down the skins healing process.
