Nothing like a beautiful day under the sun; except for the mortifying moment when you realize that you have been sunburned! If you are one of the very few people out there who has never experienced sunburn, consider yourself fortunate. The way that I described my first sunburn was as “a piece of the sun caught under my skin”.
“Sunbaking” as I like to call it has to be one of the most uncomfortable feelings that a human can experience. Not to mention the damage that it can cause to your skin and how much you are exposed to skin cancer. Because we know how urgent sunburns need to be treated, we have decided to share our 3 secret remedies to cure them.
