Treating your skin properly after receiving a sunburn

Posted in Body Microdermabrasion |

Many people like to get away from it all and go on vacation once the weather turns colder in the winter. It can be exciting and relaxing to sit on a beach under the sun for days on end, but failing to take the proper precautionary measures can result in damage to the skin.

Even if you wear lotion with SPF protection, sitting in direct sunlight from an extended period of time can make your skin more prone to burning. If you have recently suffered a burn while on a winter vacation, there are a few things you can do to recover.

First, immediately apply aloe gel or lotion to the burn once you get out of the sun. This will soothe the burn and prevent the skin from completely peeling. Next, steer clear of direct sunlight until your skin has time to heal - this may take days, depending on the extent of your burn.

Finally, treat your skin with resurf.a.stic once it's completely recovered and needs a little extra hydration. This one step microdermabrasion stick is designed to exfoliate the skin and can remove any dead cells as a result of the damage.
