The sun radiates light to the earth, and part of that light consists of invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays. When these rays reach the skin, they cause tanning, burning, and other skin damage.

Even on cloudy, cool, or overcast days, UV rays travel through the clouds and reflect off sand, water, and even concrete.

A sunburn can sneak up on kids, especially after a long day in the hot sun. Kids develop an "after-burn" later that can be painful and even make them feel sick..These include reddish skin and skin that is hot to the touch. If blistering occurs, severe burns have already occurred and one should get out of the sun as soon as possible.

2. using a wet towel

Soak a washcloth in cool water and apply it directly to the burned areas.
Add two spoons of baking soda to the water and let it soak in the cool water for 20 minutes before dipping the cloth.

Drink a full glass of chilled yoghurt to cool your body.
It can be applied on the sunburns too..
