Tips to Soothe a Sunburn

Tips to Soothe a Sunburn

Jul 25, 2019

       Drink Lots of Water
Prevent dehydration by filling up your water glass frequently. Drinking plenty off fluids will help you feel better!

Use a Moisturizer
Aloe vera or soy can be very helpful. If you need something stronger, try a hydrocortisone cream on any areas that are extra painful. Try not to use products that end in “-caine”, such as benzocaine. These are known to cause skin irritations or even allergic reactions.

Let Blisters Heal
If you have any blisters, this means you have a second-degree burn. You should let these heal & leave them alone, as blisters form to help your skin heal and protect you from an infection.

Take an Over the Counter Reliever
If your sunburn is that severe, consider taking aspirin or ibuprofen. This will help reduce swelling, redness, and discomfort.

Get Out of the Sun
This one should be easy to follow. Once you are burned, stay clear of making it any worse by staying indoors. If you must be outside, try your best to stay in the shade!

Keep Protected
After a sunburn, try to wear clothing that covers your skin while outdoors. When you hold the fabric up to a bright light, you shouldn’t be able to see any light coming through. These types of clothes are best while you are recovering. If you do spend time outdoors, try to stay under an umbrella or shaded area.

Take a Cool Bath or Shower
This will help relieve pain, as a steaming hot shower or bath is not a great idea! Gently pat yourself dry afterwards, leaving your skin damp. If you are in need of a new bath liner or walk-in-bath, give us a call at Fairbanks Construction 352-732-8600 for more information!

We hope you have a safe & fun summer!

Replacement Windows Protect Inverness Home from the Scorching Florida Heat

Charles Lachance’s house windows were more than 30 years old. In terms of energy efficiency, having them on his Inverness, Florida, home was like “throwing money out the window,” he said. So, when he heard a radio advertisement about a special windows promotion that Fairbanks Construction was offering, he decided to give the company a call.

Upon having replacement windows installed, the Lanchances quickly saw that the windows did make a significant difference in helping to keep their home cooler by providing them with the added insulation they wanted.

While having their new Kohler walk-in tub installed, the Forresters found themselves impressed with how the company’s technicians worked together as a team to complete the project in a fast and efficient manner.
