Treatment for sunburn: These will help ease sunburn pain and soothe the skin

THE days are getting hotter and it's time to head outdoors. But spending a lot of time in the sun can cause sunburn. The sun rays can hurt your skin and cause long-lasting wrinkle-inducing damage. We look at how to deal with sunburn.

Take a cool shower or bath

Take a cool bath but do not use soap because it can irritate the skin. Add a few tablespoons of baking soda or oatmeal to the water to provide some comfort. Do not stay in the water longer than 20 minutes because this may dry out the skin.
