Sunburn 101 | The Ultimate Guide to Get Rid of a Sunburn and Peeling Skin

The summer is here in the US, which means most of us spend more time outdoors, in the sun. Exposure to the sun during daily activities can cause sunburn, the skin's visible reaction to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Sunlight is the most common form of UV radiation, and it breaks down into three types of rays: UVA, UVB, and UVC. Unlike sunlight, which you can feel and see, UV radiation is less identifiable and can cause irreversible damage to the skin, such as blisters, burns, or premature aging, if not appropriately avoided. People who have fair skin, moles, or freckles, are most likely to develop sunburns through the summer, although it can happen to anyone at any time. It can damage your skin even on cool, cloudy days, from behind a window or through clothing.

Spoiled For Choice- The Smart Girl’s Guide To Buying Beauty Products.

Walk down the aisle of any beauty retailer or drugstore and you will be quickly inundated with products claiming they are green, clean, and everything in between. Paraben-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free… we are all told a million times over what our products are free from, but do we even know why? Some products even go as far as making the claim ‘chemical-free’, which is absurd, as even the earliest of elementary-aged science students would know that everything is a chemical, including water. We are being told again and again by businesses small and large that the products we are using now are chemical-laden and dangerous, and “here, use our products instead.”

Sure, you can reach to the back of your bathroom cabinet for that tube of aloe gel that's been sitting back there for years, but we all know that aloe only soothes a fraction of the pain and uncomfortableness your skin feels from sunburn, and it's not actually doing much to halt the severe damage happening in the first few layers of your skin.
