15 Ways In How to Get Rid of a Sunburn
Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen. The sun produces 3 types of ultraviolet (UV) rays -- UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. UVB rays can burn your skin, while UVA rays cause premature aging, such as wrinkles and dark spots. Both UVA and UVB rays can increase your chances of skin cancer. For the best protection, you should use a sunscreen that protects against both types of rays, so check the label to ensure that it provides full- or broad-spectrum protection.
