It only takes one severe sunburn to cause serious skin damage. However if you scorch your skin, take an ibuprofen to help combat inflammation. Then take white vinegar and dilute one teaspoon into 1 pint of cold water. Apply to a wash cloth and place on affected area for 10 minutes to help soothe skin. Pack aloe-vera cream, and apply to burnt skin multiple times a day to heal and soothe.
Whether you are driving, sailing or in a plane, remember to get fresh air and look towards the horizon whenever possible. Carry ginger candies to suck on or peppermint oil to place under the tongue as easy to pack remedies. Remember that spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine can make motion sickness worse and to stay hydrated with water throughout the day.
