If you step out of your house without sunscreen and if your skin turns blazing red, its better to move inside. Also bathe with cold water and use aloe to treat sunburn.

Here are some tips to repair skin, reports huffingtonpost.com:

* Stay away from sun: As soon as a sunburn becomes evident, get out of the sun. Some damage has already been done, and you don’t want to harm your skin any more. Stay out of the sun until the burn fades.

* Assess the damage: If a couple of small blisters pop up, it’s safe to treat the burn at home. But if you develop blisters on more than 20 percent of your body, seek medical attention immediately.

* Take a cool bath: It’s also important to cool the skin down. But skip the shower. The continual blast of water on your scorched skin will not feel good. Take a bath to cool down the skin gently. Also skip the soap, which will dry the skin out even more.

Instead, add a few scoops of baking soda to your bath. It’s cooling and helps your skin retain moisture.

* Use aloe: If you’re away from home and can’t catch a bath, apply aloe vera. Aloe is a cooling agent and anti-inflammatory. Get the oozy juice straight from an aloe plant if you have one, or else use a store-bought gel.

* Apply lots of lotion: After your bath, slather on lotion. But if you have any small blisters, leave those spots alone. When choosing a lotion, reach for something that is both moisturising and hydrating. (Bollywood Country)

* Keep your skin hydrated not only externally but also internally by drinking a lot of water. Make sure you have at least seven to eight litres of water in summer. Hydrated skin is less prone to sun damage than dry skin.

* Wear the right clothes. Sometimes, you have to go outside even during the peak hours in summer, so the best way to prevent sunburn is covering yourself with appropriate clothing. Long-sleeve shirts and pants cover more of your skin than tank tops and shorts so they can help block the sun’s rays.
