Sun Damage Treatment In Florida

When returning from a beach party, you may notice a sunburn. What does this mean? Well, your body has gained significant damage from the sun. Sunburn, along with some other factors, can cause skin cancer, known as melanoma. Sun exposure, without the application of sunscreen, makes your skin prone to dangerous ultraviolet rays. Wearing protective clothing and avoiding unnecessary sunlight can prevent sun damage and protect you from irritating sunburns.

What Are The Signs Of A Sunburn?

If you notice that your skin is peeling off, sunburn has occurred. Peeling is a natural process necessary to shred off your dead skin cells, and as your body recovers from the damage, your skin regrows fresh and vitalized. However, no matter how much you cover yourself up, some damage can still occur in the form of:

  • Moles
  • Freckles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Telangiectasias
  • Cancerous lesions

Treating Sunburn 

Keeping yourself protected from sunburns is the best prevention plan. Regularly use sunscreen that has an SFP of at least 30 and is of high-quality. Unfortunately, no matter how much you try to be careful, sunburns can still occur. But the good thing is, your body naturally recovers from the damage. In case you notice a sunburn, instantly get away from any sunlight and drink plenty of fluids. Taking a cool bath can also help soothe the pain. Additionally, apply lotion on the affected area and take a pain reliever to make yourself comfortable.
