How to avoid Sunburn

The usual advice for sunscreen is:

* Apply it 30 minutes before going out.

* Reapply it whenever necessary - like you’re sweating or you’ve been in the ocean or pool.

* A Sunscreen Protection Factor [SPF] of 15-30 means that 94% of the sun’s rays are blocked.

* An SPF of 30+ means that 97% of the UV rays are blocked.


The best treatment for sunburn is aloe vera gel. It efficiently relieves the discomfort of sunburn and, in many cases, even stops the damaged skin from peeling.Break off a aloe eaf and split it open. Squeeze out the clear gel and apply to the burn. Put any excess gel into a jar and keep in the fridge to re-apply to the burn when needed.

Milk is also a good remedy for sunburn. To get relif apply on affected area using cloth.

Applying ice to burned area is also beneficial.

Mix 2 Spoons of honey with lime juice and apply over the sunburned area.
