Expert Sunburn Advice From Dermatologist Dr. Solish
With vacations, trips to the beach and long weekend, this is the time of year that your regular skin care routine may be interrupted by an accidental sunburn. We all try to avoid sunburns by lathering on the sun tan lotion and staying in the shade, but sometimes it happens. We have turned to a skin care expert in our beauty experts section to find out what is the best way to treat a sunburn.
Q: How can I best treat strong sunburn at home?
A: First off if possible avoid the burn. Wear a good sunscreen and clotting to protect yourself. If it is too late then taking Aspirin can help with damage and the discomfort. Also applying mild moisturizers will help with the pain and the peeling that will result from the damaged skin being replaced.
