Sunburn should be avoided at all cost. Excessive exposure to the sun will damage your skin, whether or not you notice the damage doesn’t matter. From premature aging to increased risk of sun cancer, protecting your skin is critical to your overall health. But, if you’ve spent a bit too much time in the sun, some home remedies can help ease the heat.
Green Tea – the tannins in tea work wonders for soothing sunburned skin. Tea also brings with it the power of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight off free radical damage – something that causes premature aging, and you don’t want to look older than your years.
Throw a couple of tea bags into a cup and allow the tea to steep. Remove the tea bags after three to four minutes and allow to cool. Save the tea bags for a second brewing, just in case. Once cool, you can gently dab the skin with the brewed tea or fill a spray bottle and mist the sunburn.
Aloe Vera – the cooling effects of aloe vera are perfect for easing sunburn pain. You can purchase aloe vera gel in a bottle or break a piece off an aloe vera plant. Apply a thin layer of the gel to your sunburn, making sure not to rub the skin as it may cause even more damage.
Before choosing a commercial product from the store, take a look at the ingredients to make sure there are no perfumes or alcohol (among other irritants) in the gel. Perfumes and alcohol will, just like rubbing, cause additional skin damage.
Water – you may be thinking about attacking that sunburn pain from the outside, but your body may need a little attention as well. Spending time outside in the sun means your body sweats more in an attempt to keep your body temperature down.
Sweating causes dehydration, and dehydration leaves your body in stress. The last thing you need when you’re trying to heal from sunburn is stress on your body. Take the time to drink plenty of water while your sunburn is healing to ensure your body has all it needs to work better.
Sunburn causes skin damage, but there are ways to treat the damage and reverse the signs of premature aging associated with exposure to the sun. Products like Bio Placenta rejuvenate the skin helping it to look younger and more supple from the first application.
