Sunburns happen with summer in full swing. Fortunately, there are a variety of different ways to nurse a sunburn at home, using ingredients you can already find in your cubby, pantry, an even in your vanity cabinet.
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera gel can do more than provide the skin with cooling feeling. Aloe vera's anti-inflammatory properties provide sunburned skin with a soothing sensation upon application. It would be even better if you use the actual plant and apply onto your skin.
2. Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Hyaluronic acid is known to help the skin heal faster. Hyaluronic acid can help moisturize and plump dried, sunburned skin.
3. White Vinegar
Have you ever experienced an infected sunburn? It is even worse than a sunburn. To help relieve some of the pain and inflammation from the burn and prevent it from getting infected, applying white vinegar to the affected areas.
4. Green Tea
Because green tea is anti-inflammatory, it compresses a try. Simply steep green tea leaves and soak a clean washcloth in the steeped tea. Allows the compress to cool in the fridge before applying to the sunburned skin for 15 minutes.
5. Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is considered an anti-inflammatory and can be used to soothe and moisturize sunburned skin. Greek yogurt is strained more times than traditional yogurt, therefore it is thicker and has a higher concentration of probiotics.
