Leggings, sunglasses, and sun block become mandatory goods. In fact, according to the advice, anyone who would play on the beach must continually smear sun block every half hour or an hour once. But the limitation of this and that―it somehow seems complicated to keep returning to the ship or the shore on the middle of snorkeling, right? ―lets us smear the sun block just one time before the activity.
The time we have on the beach is naturally fun. But actually, the sand and sea water make us itchy, while the hot sun causes [wpseo]Sunburn Skin[/wpseo], brown, and even poignant. For those who basically have white skin, the sun would fairly redden the skin. For those who have slightly dark skin, it would be getting browner. If it were so, be patient while treating it till the skin is back to the regular condition. Do not be disappointed. If you know how to recover it, there is no need to be feared. Consider the following tips:
- After playing on the beach, get a cool bath to relieve sore and redness in the skin. When the skin is no longer washed in cold water, the skin may feel burn and smarting, but at least the pain can be muted for a while.
- Itching in various parts of the body can make you mad, but resist the temptation to scratch it. Let it stand for a while to not make things worse.
- A few days after getting off the beach, try not to engage too much with the sun. Suppose if there is a job that forces you to have activity outdoors, do not forget to wear long-sleeved clothing, pants or long skirts, hats and sunglasses so that new skin is not getting burned worse.

No less importantly, maintain your body with the consumption of nutritious foods so that all parts of the body can continue working in accordance rations and in their respective portions.
- Wear loose clothing so that no skin irritation worsens. The sweat will not lead to a fungus that can cause itching – like if you wear tight clothes. Fabric must also be considered. For this case, cotton is best.
- It is recommended for a day or two days for not using soap in the shower (even if you really want to, just a little will do). It is because the content of soap may eliminate the body’s natural oils that are important to the healing process of skin burns.
- When you rub the dirt on your body, do not be too harsh. Avoid pumice stone or other hard tools. Instead, use a soft sponge to avoid more sore irritation.

You may not immediately see the palpable results in the first experiment, but in the second and third time, certain changes would begin to appear.
- Although there has been no official study that revealed the reason how white vinegar can help the healing process of skin burn, obviously there have a lot of people who try and succeed. The trick is to mix a few tablespoons of it in a bucket of water. Put inside the bucket a towel, squeeze it, and place it on the sore part. Let it stand a few moments and then rinse the skin.

The next day, rinse at once with a shower in the morning.

In addition to relieve sore, your skin can also be much brighter. Do it every day for at least a week after returning from the beach.
Remember that the techniques mentioned above would be more effective if you do it as soon as possible. To complete it, every time you finish a treatment, apply cocoa butter lotion which can protect and strengthen the skin.
