Did you spend too much time outdoors over the weekend? Even on cloudy days the sun can wreak havoc on your skin – especially in the first weeks of summer. More than 3 million people in the US suffer from sunburn every year, and in these first hot days of the season, the numbers are high. To help heal and soothe stinging skin, it is important to begin treating sunburn as soon as you notice it. The first thing you should do is get out of the sun—and preferably indoors.
Sunburn can occur in less than 15 minutes and is often not immediately obvious. After the exposure, skin may turn red in as little as 30 minutes but most of the time it can take 2 to 6 hours. Pain is usually most extreme 6 to 48 hours after exposure. The burn continues to develop for 24 to 72 hours, occasionally followed by peeling skin in 3 to 8 days. Some peeling and itching may continue for several weeks.
Reducing exposure and getting out of the sun is the first step, and Nixall® First Aid Solution is the perfect second step. It is simple and easy to use – just spray it on! Recognized by outdoorsmen and moms as the ‘must have product’ for skin management, Nixall® First Aid Solution is perfect for sunburns and minor mishaps that happen at, or away from home. Because Nixall® First Aid helps to moisten the skin, frequent and regular applications will help return your skin to its normal healthy state in no time. The benefits of Nixall® First Aid go far beyond sunburn management. Nixall® First Aid is safe for minor wounds and irritations caused by cuts and scratches, insect bites/stings, poisoned plant sap irritations, blisters, rashes, scrapes, and so much more.
