Jetsetting for the holidays to warmer weather? No matter how much we avoid it or how cautious we are with winter skin, sometimes the inevitable happens. Yep, we’re talking about those unfortunate sunburns. Luckily, we’ve done some research to help nurse your skin back to its healthy glow in a flash. For an even faster healing time, follow these steps and be sure to continue your daily regimen of Nouráge beauty supplements to restore the antioxidants and vitamins into the skin.
1. Relieve Pain With At-Home Ingredients
Apple cider vinegar, milk, cucumber, raw honey, greek yogurt, cornstarch, oatmeal, and black tea can all be applied to the skin to instantly cool and alleviate inflammation from the burn.
2. Meet Your New BFF, Aloe
Aloe Vera will be your best friend through the healing process due to its ability to both soothe and moisturize. Make sure to apply this good-for-you goop before any peeling occurs. Expert tip: Chill the bottle in the fridge to make it extra cool before applying to the skin.
3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Replenish and hydrate your skin by drinking electrolyte-infused water, lemon water, and/or coconut water. A sunburn draws fluid to the skin’s surface and away from the rest of the body, so keep a glass of water on hand and indulge frequently.
4. Avoid Tight Clothing
Let thy skin breathe! Stay comfortable by wearing loose fitting, soft, breathable clothes to help your body temperature stay cool and not irritate the sunburn.
5. Get Some Rest
Sunburns can be traumatizing to the body, so give your skin some TLC by resting up. Make sure to get enough sleep, and if lying down is too painful, sprinkle a little baby powder around your bed to prevent sticking to the sheets.
6. Live and Learn Through the Burn
Once healed, prevention is the name of the game going forward. Antioxidant enriched Nouráge, along with additional precautions, will prevent burns in the future. Wear hats, apply (and reapply!) sunscreen, and utilize shade. Skin health is important, so make sure you come prepared when the sun casts its shining, but damaging rays.
