How to Treat Sunburn Naturally
by Danielle Lewis

 

 

Editor´s Note from Zorica Denton: With summer on our doorsteps and lots of sunshine, chances are we will end up with sunburn skin. These easy to make homemade remedies will save you money and be healthier for whole family.

 

If you are at all like me, you love being outdoors in the elements and sun. I confess I do love the glow of a tan on my olive skin. But even I will get burnt if I am not careful especially more so now that I am older. I have never been one to make use of traditional sunscreens, I always felt that I got more sunburnt with them than without. When I would go to the beach or surfing and I knew I would be out for hours I would instead apply zinc to areas that I knew burned more easily. I found nothing worked quite as well as zinc (and it turns out it’s way healthier for you to use as well- so win-win!).

Gradually getting exposure to the sun everyday is healthy for us and naturally provides us with the Vitamin D that our bodies need. We all try to be careful when out in the sun, but sometimes we end up with what can end up being a painful sunburn. But what can you do to naturally soothe and repair your burnt skin?

Here 7 safe and effective homemade remedies to soothe and heal sunburnt skin:

 * Aloe Vera: This has always been my go to remedy to revitalize my sunburnt skin. Turns out it is also the most common natural remedy for burned skin. I prefer to grow my own aloe vera plant so that it is super fresh, bonus is they are super easy to maintain.
 * Apple Cider Vinegar: Get a spray bottle and fill it with ACV, keep it in the fridge and when you get burnt just spray it onto the burnt area.
 * Potato Peels: Provide moisture and carry natural anti-bacterial properties that aid in healing.
 * Lavender Essential Oil: Relieves sunburn and can also prevent peeling.
 * Yoghurt: Spread full-fat, plain, unsweetened yoghurt on the burnt area and leave on there until it warms, then rinse off. It will help your skin to cool and heal.
 * Tea: The tannins in the tea will help to soothe the burn and heal the skin. You have two options here: 1) make a pot of strong tea, soak a piece of cloth in it and then apply the cloth to the sunburnt area. 2) Make a ‘tea’ bath and soak in it.
 * Cucumber: You can either apply thin slices or a puree of cold cucumbers directly tot he affected area.
