Unfortunately, despite our best efforts to apply and reapply our SPF cream, it seems, after a long day at the beach, nothing can save us from getting sunburned…
The truth is, in many cases, there is nothing we can do expect to accept this sad fact and take some essential, necessary measures that will help us overcome this condition more easily and effectively.
Below you can find a handful of efficient tips to follow and remedies to try this summer to protect your skin and yourself from the dangerous and painful sunburn effects.
Always moisturize in a smart way
Right after you have a bath, the sunburn effects become more obvious and painful. This is the moment you need to take action and start moisturizing strategically your sunburned skin.
Try to purchase a natural, organic body cream that will not only give you the hydrated feeling but will also nourish the skin layers so it can recover faster.
On the first couple of days after the sunburn, keep in mind to moisturize your skin several times throughout the day so it can always stay hydrated and not have a chance to get dry and fell off.
The kitchen is your new best friend
If you didn’t know, some of the best and strongest products to cure the sunburn effect are already found in your kitchen.
First of all, you need to drink plenty of water to counteract the drying effect that sunburn leaves on your skin. When talking about water, you need to also consider getting it from fruits and veggies.
They are a great source of water while supplying your skin with vitamins and minerals to help it properly and fully recover.
Did you know that one large wedge of watermelon provides 9 oz, more than a cup of water? Some other effective and hydrating fruits include honeydew and cantaloupe. They both contain about 5 oz of water per cup.
Milk is also a great product to include when treating your skin after a sunburn. Just soak a clean and soft cloth in a bowl continuing around one cup of milk and two cups of water and also a handful of ice cubes. Then, you just need to apply the compress on your skin for around 15 minutes at least three times a day for two-three days after the sunburn.
Don’t forget the coconut water
Everyone knows how effective can coconut water be when trying to have a glowy, hydrated skin. It is widely known for its recovery and nourishing properties that are why it should be always included when treating a sunburned skin.
Try to mix coconut water with one tablespoon of sandalwood powder in order to get a thick mixture. Then, apply it all over your face and body and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Then you can wash it off and reapply it later again…
