How do I treat sunburn?

It is very important to cool and moisturise sunburnt skin as soon as possible and then not expose it to the sun again.  Sunburn can be very dangerous, and if it is severe, you should consult your doctor.

Aloe Vera gel is good for sunburn, as is anything with chamomile in – you don’t really want to put an oil on it as if the skin is hot, which it will be, the oil will carry on ‘frying’ it.  Calamine lotion is also cooling and soothing.

DO use a strong Sun factor when going into the sun and re-apply it regularly to prevent any future burning.
