Experts advise people to constantly moisturize the skin with sunscreen. Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, said, "As soon one realize that the skin is a little too red, one should take an anti-inflammatory pill like ibuprofen or aspirin, which will help to stop inflammation and redness from getting any worse and ease pain."

Experts also recommended to take the after-pool-shower with cool water to soothe skin and remove any chlorine, salt water or sand that may be lingering and causing more irritation.

One should prefer moisturizers that contain aloe, glycerin or hyaluronic acid.

Skin experts also suggest to use cool compress DIY trick i.e. soaking in skim milk, egg whites or green tea as proteins in milk and egg whites coat and calm the sunburn while green tea reduces the inflammation.

Last but not the least one should stay hydrated by drinking lot of fluids and eating water filled fruits like watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, or grapes as sun not only takes away the moisture from the skin, it also dehydrates the body.
