Even though everyone realizes the importance of taking protection from prolonged exposure to the sun, there can occur instances when one has forgotten to cover themselves with sunscreen and has to stand out in the sun for long. This often happens when one is out on work, having to visit outdoor locations, conducting camps and workshops outdoors or being involved in outdoor assignments. As a result one can end up with red and irritated skin, which can even develop into blisters. When one has suffered severe sun burn they end up with an intense burning or itching sensation and that might take some time to abate. Here are some steps that one can take to reduce the discomfort and to speed up the healing process.

Immediate steps

Often we do not realize that we have exposed out skin to the sun for too long. Only after we move into shaded areas do we feel the redness of the exposed skin and the itchiness that comes on as a discomfort. If one is carrying spray tanning they should use the solution on their skin to prevent further burning. Even if one applies sunscreen, one should remember that it takes some time to start taking effect.

Home treatments

When you are home it is necessary to run cold water or apply ice on the affected area. Applying mashed banana, tomato or vinegar on the affected area will help to soothe the burning or itching sensation. These are helpful home remedies that one should resort to when one has just experienced sunburn. These remedies help to reduce the intensity of the sunburn and can help prevent blisters from forming, like spray tanning.

Follow up measures

Once you have done an initial dressing of the sunburn, you can opt to continue treating the affected area by applying a medicated lotion that can soothe the discomfort felt and reduce the redness or blister formation. One can also apply aloe vera gel that is beneficial in reducing the redness and speed up the healing process. As a result, one does not need to endure the peeling process for long or for the new skin to appear and assume a normal skin tone.

Points to note

If the area is itching or blisters have formed that are pus filled, one should avoid scratching the area or bursting the blisters. That is a must if one wish to prevent infections from occurring or ugly marks been left in the affected area. By cleaning with cold water from time to time and avoiding harsh medication on the sensitive area, one can speed up the healing process. The affected area should be kept exposed as much as possible so that the outside air can speed up the healing.
