Sunburn is an acute inflammation of the skin that occurs as a result of intense and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Especially children and people with light skin color are in the risk group for sunburn and are much more sensitive. Sunburn can be life-threatening by causing dangerous systemic effects when it occurs in large areas. For this reason, fair-skinned individuals and especially children should use protective accessories such as hats and sunglasses when going out in the sun and should not neglect to apply sunscreen.
Mild sunburns only cause redness, but severe burns can cause blisters on the skin. There is also the possibility of scarring as a result of severe burns. It should not be forgotten that sunburns can be caused not only by sunlight but also by an artificial light source such as a solarium. The damage caused by the burn primarily affects the epidermis, that is, the uppermost skin layer. However, damage and inflammation can also occur in the dermis, the layer under the epidermis. Repeated cases of sunburn cause the skin to age faster and can eventually lead to skin cancer. Therefore, necessary precautions should be taken and sunburn should be ended as soon as possible.
To control sunburns and cool the affected area, you can apply a damp cloth to your skin. Taking a cold shower will relax your skin. However, you should avoid harsh soaps that can irritate your skin, and you should delay scrubbing and fibering for a certain period. We recommend that you stay away from things that contain alcohol or dyes for a certain period of time, as they can further dry the skin and cause further damage.
Aloe vera has been a natural remedy for sunburns for years. This herb has antioxidants and antibacterial properties that work together to fight inflammation and promote healing. If you are growing aloe vera at home, this is a great opportunity for you. If this is not the case, you can buy aloe vera gel.
One of the most important things for us is water. Don't forget to drink plenty of water when you get sunburned. Extra hydration will help care and protect the skin, which produces hyaluronic acid.
Sunburn can dry out the skin and cause peeling. The best way to reduce these effects is to apply a good moisturizer twice a day, especially after a shower.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If the burn covers a large area of your skin, your blisters are large, you cannot control your pain (severe pain), you experience discomfort such as fever, headache, nausea and vomiting, chills, confusion and fainting, we recommend that you seek medical help as soon as possible.
Did you know that tamanu oil (callophyllum inophyllum) oil gives 18-22 SPF protection even at very low concentration? We have to say that it can repair the DNA damage that occurs on the skin, prevent stains before they occur, and is also effective in existing stains. It provides an ideal treatment support for many common skin conditions such as scaly or extremely dry skin. It is also widely used as a skin cream to keep the skin young, vibrant and radiant. HARE Tamanu Oil is also an excellent moisturizer.
