It happens to the best and most vigilant of us – we either forget to apply the sunscreen, because after all we are only going to be outside for a moment. Or we forget to reapply sunscreen after a few house. However it happens a sunburn is painful!

I speak from experience as my skin is such that as a child I had to burn once before I could then tan – I’ve learned a lot of lessons since those days and no long have to have the traditional burn. Another lesson I’ve learned is how to treat sunburn at home and using natural products – in fact number 7 will probably shock you and is the treatment I swear by – having used it multiple times with great relief.
