Summer is a busy and exciting time, but that isn’t always a great thing for your skin. From beach vacations to cookouts, your skin endures excessive sun exposure between June and September. If you find yourself suffering from a painful sunburn, these remedies will give you some relief and minimize the damage your skin sustains.
Homemade Face Mask
Oatmeal is a naturally soothing substance that you can just pull from your kitchen cabinet and use for your skin! Combine ½ cup hot water in ⅓ cup oatmeal, then add two tablespoons plain yogurt, two tablespoons honey, and one egg white. Once everything is mixed together, just apply a thin layer to your face and let it sit for 10 minutes before wiping it away with a soft washcloth. Your sunburn won’t disappear, but your skin will begin the exfoliation process to help gradually shed dead and damaged skin.
Apply Real Aloe
Aloe vera is one of the best natural remedies for burnt skin, but you can’t always trust store-bought aloe to be pure and natural. Find an unprocessed aloe product that can moisturize and comfort your skin without leaving a greasy residue. Rub it over your sunburn a few times a day to escape the burn and help your skin heal!
Choose Your Makeup Strategically
If your face is showing signs of significant sunburn, you will want to apply makeup in a way that conceals the worst of your redness. First, neutralize that bright red color with a primer that has green undertones. An all-natural mineral powder is the perfect choice, because it won’t block pores or accentuate flakes. Follow it up with an application of bronzer, but steer clear of red lipstick, tinted eyeshadow, and blush.
Once your sunburn has cleared up, call (727) 726-6100 to make an appointment at Red Bamboo Medi Spa in Clearwater, Florida. You can take advantage of microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other treatments that will rejuvenate your skin and ensure that it doesn’t suffer long term damage.
