If you get a bit too much sun, try using old, classic Noxzema to ease the discomfort. Slather it on heavily and while it is a bit stinky it will cool the burn off and hopefully you'll see some improvement by morning.
I also use Noxzema on my face to remove make-up (when I wear it which is almost never). I have rosacea and I can't use soap or any other sort of cleanser but for some reason Noxzema works for me. Avoid using it around your eyes though.

Sunburn can raise your blood glucose, use a SPF 15 or more or stay out of the sun. Sheild your glucose meter also, bright sunlight and heat can distort your results/ Keep test strips, equipment and medications away from extreme temps and sunlight.
Remember to use sunscreen even if the day is overcast. You can still get sunburn from those harder rays getting through. I leave the sunscreen by my Mp3 player so that I will not forget when I am ready to take my walk for the day.
As summer approaches outdoor activities increase and so do sunburns. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and can be diagnosed and treated easily. By using sunscreen and visiting your dermatologist you can help decrease the risk of skin cancer.
Having recently been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, I know the importance of these regular check ups and the use of sunscreen when going outdoors. Please, for your own health, get your skin checked out.
