Try These Three Home Remedies for Sunburn
Maybe you spent too much time in your garden without protecting your skin from the sun. Or maybe you spent a long weekend at the beach, not realizing how strong the sun is at this time of the year.
Regardless of the circumstances, sunburn can make you miserable. Not to mention the fact that it can have both a short and long term impact on your health.
Here are three of the best home remedies for sunburn:
· Aloe vera. For many years, this has been one of the most common ways to soothe a sunburn. Not only does it provide a cooling sensation, but it also keeps your skin hydrated.
· White vinegar. An often overlooked home remedy for sunburn, white vinegar helps prevent an infection. White vinegar acts as an antiseptic, all the while treating both pain and inflammation.
· Baking soda. A cold compress of baking soda and water can help balance the pH of your sun burned skin. Do this several times per day for 15 minutes at a time.
Even if you do your best to prevent sunburn this spring and summer, you never know what will happen when you spend a lot of time outdoors. If you find yourself dealing with any level of sunburn in the months to come, try these three home remedies.
