Summertime – who doesn’t love outdoors activities, be it walking, jogging, relaxing, picnics, the beach, swimming, surfing, camping…, the options are vast. It all can of course be enjoyed with the right skin protection.
Sunburn can be a painful result of too much sun exposure so, apart from other protection, good sunscreen should be applied regularly and sufficiently when out and about.
Schüssler-Salt-Cream No. 3 Ferrum phosphoricum as well as the corresponding Schüssler-Salts tablets or drops  is the first recommended remedy in case of sunburn.
A quick and soothing way, when the cream is not on hand, is by dissolving 5 tablets in a cup of cold water – soak a face washer (flannel) and place flannel on the burnt area as a compress.
Good results with mild redness due to sun exposure and dehydration of the skin have also been achieved by using No. 8 Sodium chloride 6X – also in form of a compress, or the cream.
No. 3 Ferrum phosphate 12X tablets or drops can even be taken as a prevention, e.g. before your planned holiday take 2 tablets (or 10 drops) three times a day – allow tablets to dissolve in the mouth/drops can be taken in some water.
Advice  – Of course, the best medicine is prevention. Remember to drink lots of water, and if you are unsure, seek medical help.
