Make no mistake, gentlemen, a sunburn is a skin injury. Depending upon your skin’s pigmentation and melanin content, exposure to UV radiation can occur in minutes, even in the dead of winter.
The benefits of daily sunscreen have been touted widely, and be sure to include the use of hats and sunglasses in your prevention tactics. But when sunburn has set it and you are in need of quick relief, “reach for the vitamin E,” says Dr. White. “Applying vitamin E on the traumatized skin twice a day helps your skin heal.”
And guys, don’t forget about protecting your lips. The thin skin of your lips is even more susceptible to UV radiation, so look for a lip balm with SPF protection. Our Lip Agent gives you SPF 15 protection without feeling waxy or medicinal.
