It is very common to get sunburnt.
- Even if you apply SPF, wear a hat, stay in the shade, and take other preventative measures the UV rays are often so strong that you can get burned.
Sunburn can range from a mild annoyance to a serious medical problem. Most sunburns are mild, but they are painful and irrirtating. After a long day at the beach if you are sunburned it is important to keep your body cool. Drinking a lot of water and using aloe vera can help. It is necessary to stay in the air conditioning when you are sunburned. The air conditioning will immediately cool your core temperature, especially when you are feeling hotter than ever from your burn. Sometimes sunburn is so bad that it can give you chills and make you feel cold. In this situation,you should still be in the air conditioning because your body temperature will increase again and you will need a cool environment. Air conditioning can help you feel more calm and cool when you are hot and irritated from the burn. Air conditioning can also help prevent sunburns in the future. When the UV rays are at their highest, it is essential to step out of the sun. You can step into an air conditioned restaurant to get out of the heat, or go into air conditioned stores. The sun will be available to you when you get out of the air conditioning. Many people stay out of the sun completely and stay inside in the air conditioning to avoid burns.
