Treating a sunburn and preventing your skin from ultraviolet ray damage

Everyone wants to have a beautiful, natural tan to show off during the summer, but it can be difficult to get that color you're looking for without exposing yourself to an ample amount of sunshine. Too much ultraviolet ray exposure may force you to use a more rigorous anti aging skincare routine in the future.

To avoid unsightly wrinkles, sun spots and fine lines later down the line, you'll need to be mindful of how much time you spend in the sun in the present. Sometimes, a sunburn is simply unavoidable - perhaps you were doing gardening or playing with the kids in the yard and lost track of time. That being said, it's important to treat your sunburn properly to reduce the damage done to your skin.

The Mayo Clinic suggests keeping the burn moist and cool - take a chilled bath to relieve the area. Aloe vera can be used once the burn begins to peel to keep the skin hydrated and prevent excessive flaking.

Next time you're in the sun, don't forget to apply Elemis Liquid Layer Sunblock SPF 30. Unlike other sunscreen products, this item includes photoprotectants and antioxidants to protect your skin against the environment as well as the sun.
