A few simple steps to prevent sunburn:
- Stay out of the sun during peak hours between 12pm – 3pm.
- Use sunscreen on any exposed areas. An SPF of 45+ is recommended
- Keep covered up.Use an umbrella and floppy hats when out of the pool.
- Put a small amount of oil or sunscreen in your hair so you will avoid burning your scalp.
If you do get sunburn, aloe vera gel is an extremely soothing and non-toxic solution. Buy it in tubes or tubs and generously coat your sunburn. No need to rub it in, it’ll do that on its own.
