In this blog we describe immediate actions you can take to treat sunburn:
Cool down - Apply a cool damp cloth to the affected area.
Moisturise - An aloe vera cream may provide some relief.
Decrease the inflammation - Consider taking an anti-inflammatory pill.
Replenish your fluids - Drink lots of water (ideally with electrolytes) to hydrate.
Pain relief - Consider taking an aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce discomfort.
Healing process - Allow blisters to heal naturally, don’t peel your skin.
Stay indoors - Don’t go outside unless you absolutely have to.
Stay protected - If you have to go outside wear specialist UPF sun protective clothing to protect yourself against sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer.
Seek medical assistance - if you have experienced severe sunburn and other adverse symptoms which may include nausea, chills, faintness or fever.

“It wasn't until I retired and relocated to Queensland that I discovered that yearly skin checks were important. Queensland has the highest rate of skin cancer in Australia. I was shocked to be diagnosed with a squamous cell cancer on my forearm and shortly after, a Basal Cell on my throat.” — Anne, Solbari Customer
