Default Re: Sun "Burn Tips"

Once I went to the beach and it was rather overcast and I forgot about sunscreen (stupid me I know) and by the end of the day I was cooked like a lobster (looked like one too ) and it hurt A LOT! I tried everything, ice, aloe, wet washcloths and nothing worked long term, I'd get maybe 5 minutes of relief with aloe but that's it. I came on here to lament about my pain and it was Mimsy (i believe) who told me about using yogurt. It sounded crazy but i had nothing to lose. I bought the yogurt (plain) and I slathered a nice layer on my sunburn. I waited until it dried and then I washed it off. I was amazed at how it no longer hurt. Sure, I was still red as a tomato but at least now I could sit/lay down without pain and the pain never came back.

I tell everyone I know who mentions to me about their painful sunburn and they all look at me like I'm crazy but then they try and they just can't thank me enough.

I used to be pastey as a kid. Not any more.Years of going the the beach in England, burning every summer. Then moving here where, as a teen, burning every hotter summer. There was no sunscreen, we put stuff on the tan. It's amazing we live as long as we do.
Given a choice, I'll pick shade. This aside I don't agree with covering up all the time in the sun. The sun is good for you, just in small doses. The lighter your skin the less time you can spend. I usually wear a t shirt and shorts all summer.
This is interesting.

There looking for clarification on some of the info, but it's still a good read.
