Feeling the Burn? Here’s How to Treat Minor Sunburn

July 16, 2014 4:02 pm

If you've ever been afflicted by the prickly heat of sunburn, you know how it can put a damper on summertime fun. Should minor sunburn strike this season, here are some remedies for easing the burn. (If your burn is especially painful or blistered, consult your doctor!)

1) ​Pop a few pain pills.
Over-the-counter ibuprofen will help reduce inflammation, redness, pain, and swelling.

2) Apply a cool compress.
Soak a washcloth in cold water and place it upon the affected area for 15 minutes at a time. This will help take some of the heat out of the burn. A short soak in a cool bath can work here, too, along with chilled 100% aloe vera gel.

3) Hydrate.
Drink plenty of clear fluids. This will help your body repair the damage to your skin cells.

4) Moisturize.
Slather on quick-absorbing lotions to help keep your skin supple. Avoid ointments, however, as they create a barrier on the surface of the skin and actually trap in the heat.

5) SPF.
Of course, the very best remedy for sunburn is always prevention. Be sure to liberally apply sunscreen before venturing outdoors, and reapply every hour or so.
