Sure, you may get a nice tan in the summer, but did you pay the price of redness and skin damage to get it? If this is the case, it's time for sunburn relief.
Sunburns occur when the skin is exposed to sunlight, both UVA and UVB rays, for long or sometimes just short periods of time. Symptoms of sunburn include red skin that's tender to the touch. Sunburnt skin might also swell or blister and even peel. Severe sunburns can be extremely uncomfortable and painful. Sun exposure can lead to premature aging, skin dryness, and dark pigmentation, and it sometimes causes more serious skin problems like skin cancer.

Sunburn relief products help to heal the pain and itchiness associated with sunburns in a shorter period of time. They also heal sun damaged skin by allowing burned skin to die and flake off, revealing fresh skin under the surface. Almost all sunburn relief products contain aloe, but some also contain lavender, peppermint oil and shea butter.
Taking vitamin supplements such as Vitamin A, C and E will also help soothe the skin if it's been sunburned. In addition to store-bought products, applying whole-fat milk works well to relieve sunburn pain. Just apply whole-fat milk, like a lotion, directly to the burned area.
