Skin Burns and Treatment. I remember hearing to apply butter on affected areas if you burn yourself in the kitchen. Turns out that's not the best thing to do after all.

I know, I know, they are very relaxing and it's so soothing to lay in there and listen to tunes. It's such a disappointment when the bed shuts off letting you know the session is over.

Those products have come a long way and will NOT leave you looking orange or overcooked. Click here to learn how to prevent sunburns, which can often lead to skin cancer.
