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 bath to cool down the skin gently.

* 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)

New Apple Watch Can Prevent Sunburn, Skin Cancer

"New electrodes in Apple Watch Series 4 now enable customers to take an ECG directly from the wrist," Apple said in a statement on Thursday. Flickr

The new Apple Watch can help prevent sunburn, premature skin ageing and even skin cancer as the US Patent and Trademark Office have approved its patent on monitoring ultraviolet (UV) light exposure.

Apple’s patent describes a system where UV light sensors detect sunlight and tracks exposure over time.

“The system can then provide the user with alerts about their exposure, including guidance on preventative measures if the levels are excessive,” AppleInsider reported on Tuesday.

Once the UV detection feature comes to Apple Watch, it could warn users when they have been out in the sun and exposed to UV light for too long.

The data from the sensors is fed into an analyser that compiles the total exposure time and how much UV light the user have been exposed to and then alert the user.

The new feature would add to various health benefits associated with Apple Watch Series 4.

Being utilised the world over for various health-related research — from decoding binge-eating disorder to connecting hip and knee patients to doctors — the new Apple Watch houses a feature called “Fall Detection” that will alert emergency contacts saved in your iPhone in case you meet with a hard fall.

The new Watch also has an electrical heart sensor with two new features — low heart rate notifications and faster heart rate reading.

The moment you get furious — in office or at home — Watch Series 4 sends you an immediate notification about your heart rate going through the roof, requiring you to cool down.

The electrical heart sensor is also capable of taking an electrocardiogram (ECG) using the ECG app, which will be available in the US later in 2018, as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved it. (IANS)
