|It’s hard to resist soaking up the first few rays of summer sunshine, (while it lasts) but sometimes lounging in the sun can come with a heavy price. If you forget to put on your sunblock, you can end up with a nasty and painful sunburn. |
The outer layers of your skin become inflamed by overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, and the affected area gets hot and tender. Fortunately, there are some tried and true home sunburn remedies that can soothe your stinging skin. Try these ten suggestions to cool off, but remember: repeated sunburns cause your skin to age more rapidly, and increase the risk of cancer, so slather on that sunscreen the next time you venture into the sun.
