Some might look at this photo and consider it a major FAILURE! Others may not ;-)

No matter how many times we’re told we should use sunscreen every day, sometimes we fail.

Just like PricewaterhouseCoopers failed in last night's trivial Best Picture Oscar mess up. Surely, it must sting for them, the cast and crew of La La Land and the presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.

Sun-starved vacationers are known to soak up the rays on the first few days of their vacation to Hawaii. And even the most diligent sunscreen user can sometimes miss a spot and end up with a burn.

Here are some things you can do to heal the sting and inflammation and what to avoid to prevent further inflammation.

-If skin is inflamed, get relief by applying a cold compress or an after-sun lotion that contains anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as aloe.

-If you have a severe burn that blisters, consult a dermatologist. There are prescription topical medications we can prescribe to drastically reduce the effects of a sunburn.

-Stay out of the sun until the burn heals, and keep your skin clean, cool and well hydrated.

For instance, come to Bacchus - centrally located, 2 blocks from the beach with cool a/c and lots of hydrating beverages. There's plenty of sympathetic men to offer you solace and to apply lotions. :-)

With the proper care and attention, before you know it, that burn has turned into a sexy tan.

-Take hot showers or baths.
-Use fragrance-heavy products.
-Apply skincare with aggressive active ingredients—like glycolic acid or retinol—until the burn is clear.

Take care of yourself when you're out in the tropical sun. We don't want to see you in pain. Use sunscreen. And if you do need a break from the sun, Bacchus welcomes you. Always.
