First aid for sunburned lips

First aid for sunburned lips

You exfoliate, apply lip balm, and apply a lip mask every night. But just an hour of fun, flying in the summer sun without protection will make all lip care efforts meaningless.

First aid for sunburned lips

Immersed in a tropical beach with sunshine and golden sand in summer days will sometimes make you neglect the task of protecting your body and skin. Not only your face and body skin, but also your lips are easily subject to sun damage. So that memorable trips don’t become a nightmare with sunburned lips, keep the following things in mind.

Just like any other part of the body when exposed to the sun, lips can also get sunburned if not properly protected. Lips have delicate skin and very little pigment, which protects the skin from UV rays, so it is very sensitive and vulnerable. After a day of walking outdoors, your lips may begin to “protest” with signs such as burning, dryness and cracking, appearance of tiny blisters and accompanied by pain.

According to dermatologist Nazanin Saedi of the New York Medical Council (USA), these are first-degree sunburn lip symptoms and will usually appear about two to five hours after the lips are exposed to the sun. Sun. More serious signs include peeling lips, swelling, large blisters, and severe burning pain, which could be signs of a second-degree burn.

Not only is it painful and makes talking, laughing and eating difficult, sunburn on the lips in the long run can also lead to skin cancer. In addition, the skin of our lips also has a dense network of blood vessels, so lip skin cancer has the ability to metastasize to other areas of the body.

Cold compress

As soon as you feel the differences that indicate a sunburned lip, apply a compress soaked in ice water gently to the damaged skin. This is the fastest way to cool the skin of the lips and reduce swelling. Besides, when we get sunburnt, we tend to get dehydrated, so make sure you drink enough water to cool your body from the inside.

Moisturizing

Moisturize, especially at night when the skin is in the process of recovery. Apply honey or aloe vera gel to your lips to help reduce irritation while hydrating and anti-inflammatory.

When the lips are damaged, it is best to avoid using products containing mineral oil like Vaseline, because they will cause the skin to become clogged, thereby prolonging the burning time as well as the burning pain symptoms.

See a dermatologist

The symptoms of first-degree lip burn should improve and go away within a week or two. But in the case of second-degree burns and blisters on the lips that don’t heal, you need to see a dermatologist as soon as possible for a prescription with anti-inflammatory and special skin burn medications.

Limit your exposure to the sun

“Prevention is better than fire fighting” will be effective advice for this case. Enjoy the endless summer vacation, but don’t forget to equip yourself with a mask, hat to protect your face and lips from the harsh sun.

Apply sunscreen

A lip balm with SPF 30+ is a must in every season, especially on days when the UV index is sky-high. Apply sunscreen to your lips at least 15 minutes before you go outside and reapply after swimming, sweating, or eating.

Don’t apply lip gloss too often

Limit the use of colorless lip glosses, unless they have a sun-kissed SPF layer underneath. Because transparent lipstick texture tends to increase the penetration of UV rays instead of blocking them.
