5 Steps To Treat A Sunburn

By  

Forgot to wear sunscreen before you went outside, and now you’re red as a lobster? In this 1:46 minute long video you’ll discover 5 simple steps to treat sunburn:

Step 1: Cool off your skin

Cool off your skin with a cool bath or cool, wet compresses. If you opt for the bath, add a half cup of baking soda or several cups of colloidal oatmeal (available at drugstores). Soak for 10 minutes. Repeat as often as needed.

Step 2: Apply something soothing

Apply something soothing, like aloe vera from a plant or lotion, or 1% hydrocortisone cream.

Step 3: Take an aspirin

If you’re an adult, take an aspirin; its anti-inflammatory properties will help relieve the pain.

Tip: Never give aspirin to children under 16; give them acetaminophen or ibuprofen instead.

Step 4: Let your skin heal

Let your skin heal. If blisters form, leave them alone; if they break, use an antibiotic ointment. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about peeling—but a moisturizing lotion can ease any itching.

Step 5: Buy a good sunscreen

Buy a good sunscreen and a big sunhat so you don’t get burned again. And stay out of the sun until your burn has healed!

Did You Know?
It’s easier to get sunburned at high altitudes because you’re less protected by the atmosphere—for every 1,000 feet you go up, your exposure to UV rays increases 4%.
