Soothe the Sunburn

When fun in the sun leaves its painful mark, relief is just a squirt away. Many over-the-counter products that contain Aloe Vera and other ingredients that moisturize the skin will help in cooling and healing the sunburns. However, the secret to relief of any sunburn is to treat it quickly – both from the inside and outside. Our recommendations to treat those nasty burns outside are:

For cooling and soothing, Aloe plants are magical and are the best treatment for burns. Dr. Organic Aloe Vera Body Butter is an all-over body therapy that instantly cools and soothes the skin. As a highly effective moisturizer it is suitable for use on sun damaged and irritated skin. It forms a protective barrier which helps retain moisture, promote healing and cell regeneration and leaves the burnt skin soothed.

Lexli Aloe-based Tone and Balance can also be used for sunburns. This gentle skin toner contains natural, moisturizing humectants that tone the skin and add moisture without causing surface dryness.

For itching, Hamilton Sunscreen Eczema Cream is a soothing, emollient cream formulated for the relief of redness, itching and burning skin. It is lanolin and perfume-free, making it ideal for those with sensitive sunburned skins.

After sun lotions, Dr Hauschka After Sun Lotion – A balanced combination of precious oils and waxes that provide refreshing coolness and relaxation. Extracts of kidney vetch and blackthorn regenerate sun-stressed skin, making it supple and soft. Plant oils and waxes with extracts of Quince seed and Anthyllis vulneria protect the skin, preventing it from drying out. This nurturing lotion moisturizes the burnt skin effectively leaving it feeling cool and soft.

For renewing the sun damaged skin, SkinMedica TNS Regenerating System – This 3-in-1 regeneration powerhouse gives you the advanced skin care you’ve been searching for in one convenient system to deal with the damage a sunburn leaves behind. It combines clinically proven ingredients such as antioxidant vitamins A and C along with growth factors to visibly reduce signs of aging and sun damaged skin.

Phyto-C-Phyto Icy Blue is another product to use on the sun damaged skin as it contains high concentration of hyaluronic acid and is enriched with Vitamin B5 to intensely retain the hydration your skin desperately needs. Centella Asiatica provides extraordinary healing capabilities and offers instant relief to hot dehydrated skin.
