Natural Sunburn Remedies
Summer is around the corner and we at the west coast just had our first warm weekend. Yet my first visit to the beach usually ends not that great for me.
I feel like I have to catch up and get some tan onto my pale skin. So for the first two hours, I don’t want to take any sun screen. That’s just to get started, because when I put on good protection from the first minute, I find myself not picking up any tan at all. And of course, by the time I put lotion on, it’s too late. I get home and stand shocked at the mirror, facing a red face.
Not to speak of when I fall asleep, it can get bad, real bad. I know, sunburn can get me cancer, it’s bad for skin and I will age quicker. What can I say, next time I will put on sunscreen, until next time is here.
If you’re anything like me, good after sun care is vital. We need something to relieve pain and let the skin heal quickly by giving it plenty of fluid and nutrients.

Aloe Vera is the wonder ingredient for your skin. It contains a wonderful natural ingredients and essential vitamins. Aloe Vera gel can alleviate the pain from burned skin and restore moisture. Since it’s a natural product you can apply it as many times as necessary to alleviate pain. I especially like organic leaf juice Lily of the Desert.
Hempz Sunburn Relief
Enriched with Pure Hemp Seed Oil and Extract, this creme will soothe and cool your overexposed skin. The nurturing qualities of the Hempz leaf calm the irritated skin. Peppermint Oil cools your skin and helps stimulate the skin’s natural ability to recover from UV exposure. It also helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Cold Tea Bags
Eyelids are especially sensitive to the sun. The skin is seldom exposed when our eyes are open. No wonder that if you take a nap at the beach, the sensitive eyelid skin gets a harsh dose of sun and gets burned the quickest. To cure your eyelids, place a damp tea bag on your closed eyes. You can also soak a face cloth in iced tea and cool down your face. )r even put a few tea bags in the bathtub to relieve your entire body from sunburn.
Spread some cold, plain yogurt on your skin and let it work for a few minutes. This feels so good as it cools down the skin. When I have enough, I just rinse it off with cold water. Plain yogurt works in particular well to relief target areas of sunburn.
Baking Soda restores the balance between alkaline and acid ratio in our skin. Prepare a bath of cool water and add 1/4 cup of baking soda. Then relax and soak your body for roughly 15 minutes before rinsing off.
I know, I know. We should not let it come this far. Next time I will be more responsible. But for now I truly hope these sunburn remedies help someone feel better soon after the first hot summer weekend at the beach.
