HEAL AND SOOTHE EVEN THE MOST SUN-SCORCHED SKIN WITH THESE SUNBURN REMEDIES
Yeah, sunburns happen! Maybe you forgot to reapply sunscreen at the beach or you stayed longer than you’d planned. Or maybe you didn’t get even coverage. Whatever happened, the result is the same: You’ve got a hot, painful, red, itchy burn, and you need sunburn relief.
So how do you get relief from your sunburn? To help replenish and repair sunburnt skin, follow our simple sunburn remedies.
If you’ve been lounging by the pool or beach all day, we advise taking a cool shower as soon as you get home. The cool water will soothe your sunburn and help to remove any chlorine or salt on your skin, which can further dry out sunburned skin.
If your burn is localized (like, say, you missed a spot while sunblocking up), cold Arctic Aloe Chilling Mist ($19) is just what the doctor ordered. We suggest that you store it in your ice bucket or refrigerator for a refreshing burst of hydration. The coolness, aloe vera with and hydrating properties of the hyaluronic acid to give your skin the moisture it needs all help soothe the skin and make you a much happier camper.
Sunburn is a burn. It sounds like stating the obvious, but we often don’t think about the fact that we really, truly, seared our skin. As with any other thing that burns your skin is dried out, and your body is dehydrated too. Keep yourself full of H20, which is necessary to heal your damaged skin.
INDULGE IN SOME ALOE
Aloe vera is many peoples go-to when they have sunburn. It’s cool, soothing and seems to suck the sting and redness right out of your sunburn. Treat your burn as needed until it heals with an aloe vera lotion that is formulated with a concentrated blend of aloe vera and other essential nutrients. We recommend our Nourishing Aloe Body Lotion ($24) because of it’s nutrient-rich formula of aloe vera, cucumber, shea butter, wheat protein and green tea to soothe, moisturize and protect sunburnt skin.
*SKINCARE TIP: Keep your aloe lotion in the refrigerator for added relief.
PROTECT YOUR POUT
The sun’s rays are drying on the delicate lip tissue. To comfort and protect your lips start with a hydrating balm with aloe vera and reapply regularly when outdoors. The Aloe Source Lip Therapy ($8) keeps lips hydrated using a blend of reparative natural waxes and coconut oil cushion the lips and create a protective barrier, while stabilized aloe vera and allantoin nourish and soothe.
Don’t make the same mistake twice. After you’ve gotten burned, it takes 3 to 6 months for your skin to return to normal. When you get a sunburn and the top layer of skin peels off, the newly exposed skin is more sensitive than ever. That means you’ll burn even faster than you did before if you’re not careful. Be smart about your sun exposure and protect yourself with sunscreen, hats, and clothing.Hydrate and protect skin and lips after exposure to the sun. Stabilized aloe vera, shea butter and other key ingredients help moisturize and sooth skin, along with provide extra nourishment and comfort for dry irritated skin caused by dry air, sunburn, tiredness and pollution. The Summer Essentials Kit ($72) has all the must-have products you need for sunburn relief.
