A Dermatologist Shares Top Tips For Treating Sunburn



You’ve probably heard the saying “Black people don’t need sunscreen.” But if you’ve experienced the scaly, irritable, and splotchy effects of sunburn, then you may have come to the painful conclusion that sunscreen is vital even for darker skin tones.
 
 “Any skin type can burn,” says Dr. Lily Talakoub of McLean Dermatology. “However, the more melanin in the skin, the longer it takes.”
 
Black women may be uninformed about their risk of developing sunburn. Consequently, we may find ourselves ill-prepared for treating the condition. That’s why we asked the dermatologist to share her top tips for soothing sunburned skin.

The first course of action? Cool down.

Talakoub suggests applying ice to the affected area or taking a cool bath. Cold temperatures decrease blood flow and help to reduce inflammation.

Next, she recommends soothing the affected area with aloe vera. The ingredient touts anti-inflammatory effects and provides instant relief.  

For over the counter remedies Talakoub recommends Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream, and Coola ER Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion. These water based formulas provide intense hydration and help to speed up the recovery process.
