Avoid sunlight. Use sunscreen regularly. There are creams which will reduce this problem in days but there are available only after doctor's prescription.
sun burn can b prevented by sunscreen lotion. use 30%SPF for better protection. existing burn will disappear on its own. leave it like that.
you can do the following 1.Place a cool compress on sunburned skin for immediate sunburn relief. 2.Use lotions that contain aloe Vera to soothe and moisturize sunburnt skin on the face . . Aloe Vera is also a good moisturizer for peeling skin. 3.Drink lots of water or juice, 4.apply milk, yogurt to sunburned skin. 5.Always use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, and sunglasses, if you go out in the sun 6. try to avoid direct sun exposure. Take care .
