Once you are safely out of the sun, the first thing you should reach for after realizing you’ve been burned is your water bottle. When your skin is sunburned, fluid is drawn toward the surface of the skin and away from the rest of the body, which can lead to dehydration. Down one more glass of water than you think you need. Or, go for something like coconut water that hydrates while adding electrolytes back into your system.

When skin is already burnt, there’s nothing worse than further exposing it to harmful UV rays. For the days following a burn, try to cover up the affected area with clothing. If wearing long sleeves is just not an option for you in 100-degree heat, definitely be diligent about covering your burn in SPF as often as possible. Even if it’s cloudy, even if you think you’ll only be outside for a few minutes. To keep your skin safe from sun exposure, it is recommended to apply sun cream 30 minutes before going outside, however DÉCAAR SPF creams protect immediately. Exposure to sunlight has health benefits too. However the number of UV rays your skin can stand depends on a number of factors, such as an individuals’ complexion, genetics, time of day and location. Usually skin is only safe for between 5-30 minutes.
