Sunburn is the bane of summer time, awkward tans and forcing people to cover up.
Despite not alone in summer season, it can happen at any time of the year though, because it is due to the expose of skin to the ultra-violet rays of the sun that cause it.
When you are attacked with UV light, your exposed skin ups its production of melanin. Melanin is the dark pigment in the top layer of your skin that is the epidermis-outer layer that gives it its color and also determines how tan you can get. Raising the production of melanin is the body way of protecting the deeper layers of the skin, and the tan acts as a shield against UV light.
However the amount of melanin produced to protect your skin from sun rays is determined by genetics. So people with fair skin produce less melanin and are more likely to burn and all in all you end up with a natural shield equal to around SPF 4.
The best thing to do is prevent sunburn, but even when you do try to protect yourself you may end up burned anyways. To avoid peeling and get rid of the redness and hardness this blog will provide some treatment tips.
