Hi...Anju, ur post will help many of us, who are suffering from such skin problems....Sunburn is a painful experience and results when the skin is exposed excessively to the sun s ultraviolet rays. Skin damage from a sunburn may be minimal and show up as only a mild redness that rapidly resolves or be so severe as to cause blisters with fluid accumulation and peeling of large areas of skin. In short, anywhere from a first to a third degree burn can occur Recurrent prolonged sun exposure is a known cause of premature aging of the skin and of skin cancer.Sunburn can hopefully be avoided by following theses tips - Limiting the amount of time of sun exposure, Avoiding the worst sun hours - from late morning to early afternoon 10 o clock to 2 , Being aware that sunburn can occur even on a cloudy day clouds don t stop the ultraviolet rays , Wearing hats and protective clothing is must. USE APPROPRIATE SUNSCREENS also. Sunscreens with a Skin Protection Factor SPF of at least 15 are recommended for most people. Some dermatologists are recommending the use of sunscreens with an SPF of 30 or higher. Sunscreen should be applied 20 to 30 minutes before going into the sun and reapplied often. Don t forget that lips get sunburned, too. So, apply a lip balm that contains sunscreen, also preferably with an SPF of 15 or higher.

Hi Anju, this is an apt post for this scorching summer. Most rashes are not dangerous to a person or people in the vicinity unless they are part of an infectious disease such as chickenpox . Many rashes last a while in summers and get better on their own. It is therefore not unreasonable to treat symptoms like itchy and/or dry skin for a few days to see whether the condition gets milder and goes away. Whether it is used by patients or doctors, the word rash does not have an exact meaning or refer to a specific disease or kind of disorder. It s a general term that means an outbreak of bumps on the body that changes the way the skin looks and feels. Rashes can be localized to one area or else be widespread. The way people use this term, a rash can refer to many different skin conditions. Common categories of rash are scaly patches of skin not caused by infection, scaly patches of skin produced by fungal or bacterial infection, and red, itchy bumps or patches all over the body. Some natural remedies for summer time rasher are to wash your body with cold, clean water as many times possible. Apply talcum powder that is mild and not strongly perfumed. Put 5 drops of dettol in the bathing water. Drink lots of water....

Thanks Anju for this post, handling pimples or acne during summers is the toughest job....As such, If you happen to have an oily skin, then you are set in for even more trouble. Keeping the oil away from your skin when it s all sweaty is a little difficult task for sure. Here are a few quick tips that would help you handle your acne prone skin a little easier this summer: Keep your face clean. Washing the face with plain water or using medicated tissues for the same is just the right thing. Do not use make ups. Take lots of water, juices and liquids. This would keep your skin hydrated and prevent it from getting dried up. Fruits like water melon do a lot of good to the skin so taking loads of fruits is another suggestion that you must stick to.
