What are the best ways to treat sunburn?

Solbari blog: What are the best ways to treat sunburn?

In this blog we describe immediate actions you can take to treat sunburn:

Cool down - Apply a cool damp cloth to the affected area.

Moisturise - An aloe vera cream may provide some relief.

Decrease the inflammation - Consider taking an anti-inflammatory pill.

Replenish your fluids - Drink lots of water (ideally with electrolytes) to hydrate.

Pain relief - Consider taking an aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce discomfort.

Healing process - Allow blisters to heal naturally, don’t peel your skin.

Stay indoors - Don’t go outside unless you absolutely have to.

Stay protected - If you have to go outside wear specialist UPF sun protective clothing to protect yourself against sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer.

Seek medical assistance - if you have experienced severe sunburn and other adverse symptoms which may include nausea, chills, faintness or fever.

The likelihood of being diagnosed with skin cancer is increased if you are routinely exposed to the sun or have experienced sunburn on a number of occasions. The best way to prevent sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer is to wear UPF sun protective clothing.
