UV rays during the summer are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun is directly overhead. Stay cognizant of your sun exposure, and when in doubt, reapply your sunscreen.
Got a Bad Burn? Don’t Panic
Sunburn can be a frustrating and painful experience. Once you get burned, there’s little you can do to limit the damage to your skin. However, you can take action to ease the discomfort:
Cool the skin with a cool bath or compress.
Apply a moisturizer like aloe vera gel.
Take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medications like naproxen sodium.
