When we think of Australia, we immediately think of sunny weather and hot temperatures. However, with a naturally warm climate, sunburn is common, which is why it’s important you know how to treat it, how to prevent it, and which products aid both of these processes. Below, we have listed our top tips on how to prevent sunburn as well as some of our favourite products to help you treat it.
What causes sunburn?
Sunburn is your skin’s inflammatory reaction to extended exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, whether you’ve spent too much time sunbathing or have been working outside all day without wearing adequate protection. However, sunburn can also be caused by the replication of this exposure in artificial environments, such as sunbeds. Leaving your skin sore, angry, and inflamed, sunburn can be quite an uncomfortable price to pay for golden, goddess worthy skin. It is a common issue, especially with Australia’s climate, but luckily, it can be treated to prevent more serious issues, such as skin cancer.
How to treat sunburn
Sunburn can be treated with a mixture of home remedies, such as bathing in cold water to soothe the skin. However, this can be quite a painful experience, so you might be more comfortable using a combination of moisturising and sunburn products, as this will coax the skin into recovery.
