Fast fixes for relieving sunburn
Oh dear, you’ve been bitten by the summer bug, haven’t you? By summer ‘bug’ of course I mean summer sun – and boy, oh boy has it done a number on you.
What started out as what you considered to be ‘harmless sunbathing’ – has now manifested into a big, red, sore, sunburnt mess – and you’ve only yourself to blame.
I know that sounds a little harsh – but the fact is you should know better by now! We’ve told you all about the different sunscreens you can pick up to suit your needs, and you know that the sun is the number one culprit for ageing, not to mention increasing your risk of getting skin cancer. So there really is no excuse. End lecture.
