Hi,

Well, the best way is to keep the skin hydrated and protected. You can apply Aloe Vera gel over the burnt areas and even the entire face for a cooling and anti inflammatory effect. You can cool it in a refrigerator and apply it cool for more soothing effect. Apply a moisturizer will also help in reducing dryness and tight feeling.

You can do cool compresses over the skin but do not apply ice directly, always wrap ice in cotton cloth and apply. Wash face gently with cold water. Applying coconut oil is also helpful and have soothing effect. In case if there is too much pain and inflammation, you can take anti inflammatory painkiller to reduce pain and inflammation. You should also drink plenty of water and take sufficient rest. In case if it does not improve then you should see a Physician and get checked.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
