How To Heal Facial Sunburn

by Clara
(Cameroon)

Q: I stayed exposed under the sun and I have a severe facial sunburn. It turned darker and ugly and I don't know what to do.


A: I'm sorry to hear about your sunburn.

Your skin will heal over time on it's own but you can use organic aloe gel or organic shea butter on your skin to speed up the healing.

In the future don't overdo the sun exposure. Do these things.

- Wear a wide brim hat.
- Sunblock with at high SPF.
- Stay out of the sun between 10am and 3pm.

You have to be really careful with your skin. Even though we are black, we still burn badly if you have sensitive skin.
