When skin is damaged by sunrays, it becomes red and sore. That is sunburn. It usually can’t last too long. It can be fully healed within seven days, but in the meantime it may make your day-to-day life uncomfortable.
You can usually treat mild sunburn at home. There are a number of ways to help until your skin heals. These include cooling your skin by having a cold bath or shower. And certain foods can help reduce sunburn. Vitamin E from nuts and vegetables can help to reduce sunburn.
Once you’re sunburnt, you should try to avoid sunlight by covering up the affected skin until it’s fully healed. Sunburn can increase your risk of developing skin problems in later life, such as ageing, so it’s important to follow the methods of prevention. Wear suitable clothing and apply sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside, which can help protect your skin from strong sunrays. The risk of getting sunburnt is the highest from March to October, particularly from 11 am to 3 pm — this is when the sun’s rays are the strongest. Sunburn can also increase your risk of developing skin cancer.
