Sunburn soaks up all the moisture from your
skin, so drinking H2O will help you avoid dehydration. Get yourself a reusable

drinking lots of water is awesome for your complexion.

Talk to your parents
Ask your ’rents about taking ibuprofen to reduce any swelling, discomfort or redness you might have. If you feel weak, dizzy or nauseated, ask your parents to take you to the doctor. It could mean that the sunburn is making you sick, and that’s not good.
