Unfortunately, we all get sunburnt at one point in our lives. This can be annoying, but it is what happens. However, if you take the matters into your hands in time, you will heal a bit faster.
Stay Out of the Sun
Limit your sun exposure and stay away from the sun. Wear sunscreen and always look for shade. If your skin starts to get red know that your condition may get a bit worse, and rather stop with your activities and head home.
Take a Cold Bath
Say bye to discomfort by taking a cool and refreshing bath. Enjoy it for 10 minutes and let it cool down your skin. After you get out add a moisturizer to your skin and let it sink in so it heals the burnt parts. Redo these steps in the next couple of days till your skin starts to feel better.
Always Drink Water
Your body is probably dehydrated, and it will want a lot more water than the usual. Increase the water intake as time goes by and let your body heal. Water is great for your overall body health, and you should drink 2-3 liters per day.
Protect The Skin
Wear long-sleeved shirts to protect your skin from further sun damage.
You should also wear some long pants, a hat, and a pair of sunglasses. If possible try to stay inside till the sun comes down and only then go outside.
Don't Touch Your Blisters
This is one of the side effects once you get sunburnt, and it isn’t pretty. Try not to play with your blisters, don't pop them, and let them heal on their own. By touching them you are actually promoting infection and you may cause some scarring.
Most people will get rid of sunburnt skin in a couple of days. However, if your skin becomes too red and severe you should see your medical specialist and ask him for advice.
