When heading out into the sunshine, remember to apply sunscreen to your neck. Neglecting to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun can lead to a nasty sunburn. Protect your neck by applying sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat can also provide protection to your face and neck. If you find yourself outside without sunscreen, seek shade. If you do get a sunburn, you may find relief in a cool bath. Applying a moisturizer that contains aloe may also soothe a sunburn. Keep your damaged skin hydrated by drinking water.
