Make sure you never burn. But if you do:


  • Relieve sunburn with aloe which cools and soothes. Add a few drops of lavender or sunflowerchamomile oil.
  • Baking Soda or Apple Cider baths are really helpful. Add a cup of either to a lukewarm bath and soak.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Use a high SPF protection cream (at least 15), wear a hat and cover your skin especially at the beginning of your holiday and when the sun is hottest. Skin begins to produce its own protective melanin after a few days and you will gradually be able to take more sun.
  • Protect your eyes with a good pair of sunglasses.


Heat Rash/Prickly Heat


  • Simply soaking the affected area in cold water is really helpful or have a cool bath with a cup of bicarbonate of soda in it.
  • Lightly dust the affected area with cornflour, especially at bedtime. o Stay as cool as possible and wear loose, light clothing.


Heatstroke is easily prevented by drinking plenty of water.
  • It is caused by severe dehydration that shuts down your internal organs and increases your body temperature to dangerously high levels. It’s characterised by a severe headache, dizziness, and disorientation.
  • Heat stroke is the most serious of all heat-related ailments and can be fatal if not treated quickly. Seek medical attention immediately.
  • While waiting for help to arrive, get out of the heat, sit down, drink as much water as possible. Use a cool water compress on neck, forehead, & armpits.
