With the summer months upon us comes the summer heat and sun. We’ve all been burned by the sun before. Although we know sunscreen is good for us, we might sometimes forget to put it on, or run out at the last minute.
What are some ways to heal sunburn?
Use a cool compress to refresh your skin. Your body will cool itself off and adapt to a lower temperature. Additionally, you can take a cool shower to help soothe your skin. If you are experiencing pain you can use a mixture of baking soda and water to alleviate any burning sensation.
Of course, a go-to cure for soothing and helping to heal sunburn is aloe. Aloe Vera gel may be squeezed from an aloe plant, or you can buy pure aloe vera gel as a product.
Certainly taking precautions to keep your skin safe would be better than healing a sunburn, so pack that sunscreen!
