One of the most overlooked areas when thinking about getting sunburned is the scalp. Sad to say, even the scalp is susceptible to skin cancer.
Here are a couple of tips on how to protect your crown from the harmful rays of the sun.
- Wear a cap. Every time you’re going out in the sun for more than a few minutes, a simple cap is the best way to protect your scalp.
- Use sunscreen. A spray-in sunscreen is handy for defending those thin spots on your head.
But if you do burn your head, here are some steps to treat your sunburned scalp.
Gently shampoo your hair and apply some moisturizer to your scalp.
Avoid blow-drying, hard combs or brushes
Don’t use products that contain alcohol — these will all make the drying and peeling worse.
Make sure to keep your head protected and you can have some safe fun in the sun.
