The sun; it Is no secret that it is very important for our health and skin, but when you overexposed your skin to the sun you may end up with a sunburn, these home/natural remedies can make you a bit more comfortable
Natural ways to cure sunburn
- Baking soda: Adding a few heaping tablespoons of baking soda to cool water makes a sunburn-soothing remedy. Apply to the affected area; keep it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse off, you can also use coconut oil in place of water.
- Aloe Vera: This plant can take the sting out of sunburn. Simply slit open one of the broad leaves and apply the gel directly to the burn. Apply five to six times per day for several days. The most popular skin-cooler “improves moisturization. You apply aloe at room temperature or refrigerate fresh leaves before peeling them open.
- Cucumbers: To help restore your skin to cucumber cool, use your blender. Blend a chilled cucumber to a smooth consistency and then apply it to the burned areas liberally. You could also put shredded or sliced cucumbers on sunburned eyelids and skin for some topical relief, too.
- Potato: Potato makes for a wonderful pain reliever. Take two washed potatoes, cut them into small chunks, and place them in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until the potatoes are in liquid form. Add water if they look dry. Pat the burned areas with the pulverized potatoes. Wait until the potatoes dry, and then take a cool shower.
- Coconut oil: Apply to the sunburned area. By the next day, your skin should be significantly healed. I recommend continuing with the coconut oil for several days to promote healing and to help ease the skin peeling that is usually inevitable after a burn.
- Apple cider vinegar: Soak cotton wool with apple cider and apply to affected area at night, when you rinse off apply coconut oil also.
Give this remedy a try next time you get a little too fried from the sun, and say goodbye to that burn the natural way
