Got sunburn? What's the solution? Quickshop "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine..." If you spend a long time in the sun without the right protection, sunburn is all but guaranteed, leaving your skin red and sore to the touch. These burns are caused by the sun's UV rays and vary in intensity. 1. Two types of sunburn There are two types of sunburn: mild erythema, which raises the skin's temperature and results in redness (this is the equivalent of a first-degree burn), and intense erythema, which results in blistering. This is a second-degree burn. 2. What should I do if I'm sunburnt? As soon as you start feeling the beginning of sunburn, the first thing to do is get out of the sun and ask your chemist for advice, especially if your skin feels sore. Afterwards, pamper your overheated skin by applying one of Clarins' new after-sun products. The Soothing After Sun Balm for Face and Body and the Cooling After Sun Gel for Face and Body can both help soothe hot sensations. Rich in plant extracts specifically chosen for their soothing, hydrating and regenerating properties, these products help skin recover from damage caused by exposure to the sun. 3. Get into the right habits In addition to using Clarins' After Sun Care, it is important to rehydrate and regenerate skin that has been damaged by the sun. To do this, drink a lot of water. Finally, choose sun protection with the right SPF for your skin and reapply it every 2 hours.
