We're loving the sunny weather we've been treated to recently, and we adore sunning ourselves abroad in the summer. Not to mention we're also a little bit obsessed with sunbeds. However, unfortunately, we can get a little overexcited and forget to take the proper precautions to avoid sunburn.
We've all been there - it's red, it's hot, it can be blistery, painful and peeling. When we get sunburnt we want to heal it as quickly as possible so we can enjoy the sun again (armed with plenty of factor 50 this time).
So here are our top tips to heal sunburnt skin as quickly as possible...
1. Cool the affected skin as soon as possible, ideally using ice. Follow with a cold bath or shower, and avoid hot or warm water.
2. Use products with a high water content, and look for the following ingredients:
Fresh cucumber can also be applied directly to the burnt areas to cool and hydrate.
3. Avoid using exfoliates and skin products that contain the following ingredients for a few days:
4. Keep the area moisturised to avoid peeling. Look for moisturisers containing high levels of vitamins C and E.
5. Avoid the sun until the redness has disappeared. If you must go out in the sun, cover the affected areas and use plenty of sun cream.
Anyone who's been sunburnt before will probably agree that prevention is better than cure. So ensure that you're using the correct sun cream - one that is high factor and says the words 'broad spectrum' on the bottle. Reapply every two hours and take regular breaks in the shade.
Using sunbeds in advance of your holiday can kick start your tan and begin to build up a resistance to burning. Check out our top tips to use sunbeds safely and avoid getting burnt.

If all else fails, fake it til you make it with our award-winning stunning spray tans. Choose how bronzed you would like to be, and complete with contouring for a more toned look.

With the hot weather looking set to last, and holidays coming up, many of us are hoping to catch some rays and get a tan this summer. It's important to prepare your skin before you go on holiday for maximum tanning and minimal burning. Here's our top tips to prep your skin...
1. Moisturise. Hydrating your skin helps to promote tanning whilst preventing burning. Dry skin is more vulnerable to burning, and a good moisturiser helps to rebuild the protective layer. Remember that sun cream and after sun are also moisturising.
2. Exfoliate. Exfoliation allows your skin to rid itself of dead skin cells for a much more even tan. Try our full body buff exfoliation treatment from skin experts Dermalogica (£29), or our 30 + 30 Mineral Salt Scrub Foliation Massage (£55), also from Dermalogica. Purchase online as a voucher here.
3. Eat foods which are rich in beta-carotene and other carotenoids, to improve your skin's protection against burning and add a natural glow to your skin. The best sources of carotenoids are carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, spinach, squash, broccoli, mangos, apricots, kale, peas, tomatoes and melon.
4. Use a broad spectrum sun cream and ensure that it is the correct factor for your skin.
5. Expose yourself to the sun progressively. You don't want to overdo it on the first day so only stay out for a short time at first, then build it up. Your skin also has a cut-off point after which it simply won't get any more tanned by staying out in the sun - for most people it's around 2-3 hours a day. Staying out longer won't make you any more tanned but will put you at risk of harm from UV rays.
6. Fake it til you make it. If you feel self-conscious about being pasty pale on day 1, use a fake tan or get a spray tan before you go, so you're not tempted to overdo the sun and put yourself at risk. Bliss spray tans can be purchased online as a voucher here, and redeemed in branch.
Always tan safely, use sun cream and take regular breaks in the shade to avoid harming your skin.
To help you get bronzed for summer, Bliss are offering an amazing 80 mins for £19.95 on our fast-tan sunbed, which is awesome! Sunbeds are fab if you struggle to tan, want to prepare your skin for a holiday abroad, want to improve your skin, or if you just look and feel better with a tan. But if you are going to hit the sunbeds this summer, please read our top tips first to ensure the best results and minimum damage & danger.
1. If you have never been on a sunbed, or if you are fair skinned or burn easily, keep your sessions to 3 minutes. You can then build this up very gradually as you start to develop a tan - good things take a little time and overdoing it is a terrible idea.
2. Use sunbed lotion to protect your skin and maximise tanning.
3. ALWAYS wear tanning goggles to protect your eyes.
4. Protect your lips with UV lip balm - as lips do not produce melanin they are at risk of burning.
5. If you are unfortunate enough to get sun burnt soothe your skin with moisturiser and do not return to the sunbed until all of the redness has gone.
6. Always make sure that you eat and drink water before tanning to avoid feeling unwell during your sunbed session.
7. Exfoliate before you start tanning, and keep skin moisturised for best results, and to reduce your risk of burning.
