Sun exposure after-sun skin care

Sun exposure after-sun skin care

Your skin can burn if it gets too much sun without proper protection from sunscreen and clothes. To help heal and soothe stinging skin, it is important to begin treating sunburn as soon as you notice it.

There’s a lot you can do to ease the pain of your sunburn — moisturizing with natural products, for example, and staying hydrated. But there are also some unfortunate mistakes that could make your sunburn worse.

 

Butter will not help ease your sunburn — that's an old wives' tale. And though coconut oil can be good for your skin in other scenarios, avoid smearing it on your sunburn. Both of these fatty substances can suffocate your skin and trap your body heat.

Best remedy will always be ALOE VERA. But you can make mistakes with that too.

Some skin care products made with aloe contain chemicals and other ingredients that may serve to irritate your sunburn rather than soothe it. Any product containing alcohol or chemicals that dry out the skin could do more harm than good. The best aloe is the simplest aloe. Use the kind that comes directly from the plant. But if you can’t get your hands on the pure stuff, use a gel sold in stores with minimal added ingredients. And drink TONS of water!

Give your skin a few days, some aloe vera,  plenty TLC and it will heal. Try avoiding the harsh sun between 12-15 in the afternoon and always use sunscreen. Even if you put on sunscreen, avoid sitting under direct sunlight until your burn heals completely. You should also keep in mind that sunburns can take a couple of hours to start showing symptoms.
