Sunburn is worse than tanning. Not only does the sunburnt skin look tanned, but it additionally also burns and itches. Though people take most of the precautions, they still end up getting sunburnt because without them realizing, their skin gets exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Sun burnt skin develops freckles, pigmentation, peeling of the outer layer (epidermis) of the skin, discoloration and in worse cases it may also lead to the development of skin cancer. It is, therefore, extremely essential to treat a sunburn before the situation gets out of hand. With summer season knocking on the door, people are more likely to make their way to the beaches, and the chances of getting a sunburn are more than ever. It such cases, it is important to take precautions, especially if you have sensitive skin because with sunburn, it will hurt more.
