Try This Better Way to Beat a Bad Sunburn

Email sent: Jul 26, 2013 10:00 am


This weekend, use a cool compress to take the “ouch” out of an uncomfortable sunburn.  

Sometimes, despite our best intentions, a long day in the sun results in a painful, bright-red sunburn. Soothe the burn with a cool compress, like bag of frozen veggies wrapped in a dishtowel or a wet washcloth. Avoid putting ice directly on the burn, since it can damage skin and even cause frostbite.

Friday Review

This week, we recommended working out to maintain a sunny disposition, passing on gummy vitamins, eating colorful fruits and veggies for sun protection, using beeswax candles in the bedroom, and treating sunburn with a cool compress. How many healthy choices were you able to make this week?
