Sunburns in Las Vegas are the worse. The best way to treat a sun burn is to avoid them completely. There are many precautions that you can take before getting out in the sun and getting red as a lobster.  Too much sun and you can get sun poisoning and that is not a very fun thing to get. When you do get a sun burn there is a few simple stuff that actually can help take that burn away.

The best place to start is avoiding a sun burn. When you know you are going to be in the sun for a long period of time, apply some sun block. Reapply the sun block ever 2 hours to ensure that you will not be getting sunburn. Another simple way would to be cover up skin. If you’re out at the pool all day and you are just sitting relaxing, put a towel over your shoulders are an area where you don’t want to become burnt to save yourself from the sun. Also stay in the shade as much as you can. If there is shady areas take a few minutes and get out of the sun. Too much sun and you’re going to start feeling a little sick.

If you didn’t take any precautions and you got a sun burn then there are a few things you can do to take that burn away. The most common is aloe vera. The best thing to do with aloe vera is to put it in the fridge and store it there. So when it is put onto you, you feel the nice cold which feels great to the burn. Try not to lie on your burn too much. Many people do not realize that a sun burn is still a burn. You need to take care of it as you would if you burn your finger on a stove. Another odd trick to get that burn away is milk. If you rub a little milk on the burn it helps take the burn away.  The worst thing you can do is put lotion on your burn. The lotion will lock in the heat and not allow the skin to breath.  When the burn finally goes away you can put on lotion to keep the skin moist. This will help when you start to peel.

Sun burns are not something to mess with. They hurt and more than ever they burn. They can become really irritating and uncomfortable. But there are a few things you can do to prevent getting them, wear sun block, wear clothes, and stay in the shade when you can. This will help you defeat those sun rays. If you didn’t take a precaution and you got a sun burn its okay. It’s going to hurt but you just have to take care of it and give it the proper attention and care that it needs.  If you have a very serious burn get over to Las Vegas Urgent Care and they will make that burn go away.
