5 tips for treating a sunburn

Summer is here and a sunburn can be a nasty side effect of spending time outdoors. As we head in to the summer season, keep these tips in mind when it comes time to treat your sunburn. 

  1. Apply a cold milk compress for fast inflammation relief.
  2. Drink cold water to keep your body’s overall temperature down and to replenish lost fluids.
  3. Wear loose clothing to allow your skin to breathe more easily.
  4. Take an oatmeal bath to calm inflammation and itchiness.
  5. Use a one percent hydrocortisone cream to soothe an extra itchy sunburn.
