Sunburn, what is it?

Sun File > Sunburn, what is it?

Sunburn is the sign that the skin has been aggressed by UV rays during intense exposure to the sun. The burn is of varying degrees. Light sunburn involves an increase in skin temperature and redness and corresponds to a first degree burn. Severe sunburn causes the appearance of small blisters and is a second degree burn.

The first reflex: to smear moisturizing balm to calm the feelings of heating, to alleviate the redness and to regenerate the skin.

After that? Put your skin away from the sun for a few days.
