Sunburn: how to make up for the damage? - Miss

Despite all your efforts not to burn out this summer, did you still get a sunburn? Here are Virginie's tips to soothe and repair your skin after a hot cock stroke.

Sunburn: the why and how

Sunburn, real name actinic erythema, is a burn caused by unprotected exposure to the sun. Depending on your phototype, you can burn out in an hour as well as in ten minutes. Mother Nature, justice, all that stuff...

There are several degrees of severity of a sunburn: first the red patch, then the blisters, then a mixture of the two accompanied by fever and headache. Either way, it hurts and it's not good for you at all!

This type of inconvenience, which prevents you from taking hot showers and sleeping in your favorite position, can (and should) be avoided by conscientiously applying sunscreen every two hours if you spend your day in the sun and after each aquatic activity or having excited your sweat glands (naughty).

Only good memories

Soothe heatstroke

Once the sunburn (the stroke of love, the stroke of I love you) caught, all you have to do is try to repair the damage by first soothing your inflamed skin. I specify that these few tips are valid for a “small” sunburn. If your case is more severe, I strongly recommend that you go see a doctor or even take a quick trip to the emergency room in your city.

Sunburn is a burn, it must be treated as such! So always start by running the affected area of ​​your body under cold water. In addition to bringing down the temperature of the skin, cold water will help reduce inflammation. Don't hesitate to take a shower if your sunburn is extensive or located in a hard-to-reach place (naughty bis).

After drying your little roasted body, you can coat the overcooked area with Biafine or aloe vera gel to relieve pain. If the sunburn is very red, apply the product in a thick layer and let the skin absorb it, like a moisturizing mask. St. John's wort oil, massaged directly into the skin, is also very effective in soothing and nourishing the epidermis.

If you feel like it, you can also try homemade masks made from yogurt, cucumber and tomato, but know that if they are fun to make (and to nibble with some crisps), they have a very limited effectiveness. on burns.

Repair the skin

Who says sunburn often says peeling skin. Unfortunately, there is not much to do against this natural phenomenon of desquamation, apart from moisturizing your skin as much as possible, from the outside of course, but also from the inside.

Drinking plenty of water (between 1.5 and 2 liters per day) has many benefits for the body, including that of deeply hydrating the skin, which can be very useful in the event of skin aggression: skin whose the cells are gorged with Château-la-Pompe will recover more easily and faster than skin that lacks water.

To help your epidermis to replenish itself, you can also apply, morning and evening, a very greasy cream on your sunburns. Obviously, any exposure to UVA/UVB rays is prohibited until your skin is completely healed.

A sunburn, and after?

To go into the scientific details (“Oh, hi Jamy!”), sunburn is an attack on the cells of the epidermis and dermis which leads to the release of inflammatory substances in the tissues. A dilation of the capillaries of the dermis then takes place, which causes a discoloration of the skin as well as the destruction of the keratinocytes (cells which synthesize keratin). Result: the skin is red and peeling.

In itself, a sunburn would not be so annoying if the brave keratinocytes surviving the burn could not subsequently transform into precancerous cells, then into real skin cancer (also called "melanoma") if you did not do not protect your bodily envelope.

We therefore do not laugh at all with sunburn and sun protection! Here is a nice little video that shows the effects of sunscreen on the face.
