The only sunburn remedies that actually work


EXCERPT: To treat a sunburn, the very best thing you can do is prevent yourself from getting one in the first place. Wear protective clothing, don’t stay out in the light for too long, slather on gobs of sunscreen (far more than you think you should), and reapply often. Still, even with the best intentions, many of us end up with that dreaded lobster look. In consequence, the market offers tons of treatments—and equally as many old wives’ remedies claim that they provide superior relief. But the scientific answer is surprisingly simple: Just cool and moisturize your burned skin. (INCLUDED: Why you fry; Heal the burn; Resist the urge to peel; Offense is the best defense)
