Infact, a significant sunburn on the face and other parts may be quite painful indeed and the sunburn damage may ultjmately lead to facial wrinkles and even increased risk of skin in the future,
Sunburn is caused because of exposure to the excess harmful rays of the sun. Excess sun rays is harmful for the skin as it damages the skin, can cause skin blistered, red and dry also feel pain and irritation.
Aloe vera gel is ideal for most burns, and this natural wonder can quell the discomfort of a sunburned face as well.
Plain white shaving cream can relieve the agony of sunburn on the face as well.
Make paste with cucumber and cold milk. Apply this paste on the affected parts of the body
Put a wet soft and cool piece of cloth on your face and other parts of the body, whenever you feel itching and burning sensation in the skin.
