Sunburn is what happens when the skin gets damaged from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. These rays can cause the skin to become red, swollen, and painful to touch. In severe cases, this can lead to blisters and even make you feel feverish or nauseated.
Sunburn might seem like just a temporary irritation, but it can have long-lasting damage to the skin. It can accelerate skin aging and increase your risk of skin cancer, particularly melanoma, the deadliest type. Hence, it is crucial not only to treat it but also to prevent it from happening.
Preventing sunburn is way better than having to treat it. Always use sunscreen, cover up with clothing, limit sun exposure, and always wear sunglasses.
