Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! It sure is summer here in Boston!

Partial CoverageYou all know to wear sunscreen, but sometimes things happen and you get burned.

Treat a sunburn with cool water and moisturizer.

Put cool compresses on the burn or take a bath or shower. Just lightly pat your skin with a towel so it’s not completely dry and apply a moisturizer to the burn. Aloe vera is great! Lotions with any sort of “-caine” can irritate your skin. If the burn is really painful and inflamed, some ibuprofen will help.

I use this, which has all sorts of soothing ingredients, like aloe, oatmeal, cucumber and lavender.

Make sure to drink a lot of water too.
