Summer Beauty Tips: How to Deal with Sunburns

Summertime means warm air, sandy beaches, and sometimes… sunburns. The most important advice is to take preventative measures to guard your skin against damaging sun rays. However, when sunburn strikes, and you have a very important office meeting or a special event coming up, airbrush makeup can help cover up discoloration without sitting too heavily on the painful burn.

Protect Your Skin

Your best tactical skin plan includes a good defense. The sun will be blazing at you all day, so take time to put on some sunscreen before venturing outdoors. Apply sunscreen to your whole body (yes, even under clothing). WebMD notes, “The average T-shirt offers an SPF of about 7,” so even covered skin is at risk while you are relaxing on the beach. When choosing the right sunscreen, The Mayo Clinicadvises, “Rather than looking at a sunscreen's SPF, choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that will protect you from UVA and UVB rays.” Remember to reapply regularly for the best protection.

When Sunburn Strikes

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, sunburn happens. Sunburns are painful, and severe sunburns can take more than a week to heal. You should always apply cooling aloe to ease your discomfort, and consult a medical professional if you have any concerns.

Airbrushing: What to Expect

Streaky reddened skin from sunburns is uncomfortable and can be embarrassing in certain situations. Regular makeup can sometimes feel heavy on sensitive, sunburned skin. The Fashion Spot observes, “Even the softest Kabuki brushes could be very painful.” Luckily, there is an alternative! Airbrush makeup is lightweight, seamless, and can help you achieve that summer glow you always wanted!Airbrush makeup is sprayed onto your skin, thus it does not scratch or rub against your skin in the same way that traditional makeup is applied.  An airbrush makeup appointment with StyleInGo onlylasts about 1.5 hours.
