However, it still happens that you are unintentionally exposed to sunlight and got sunburn again. This is why is always good to know these useful Summer Practical Tips.

The Best 4 Sunburn Natural Remedies

That’s why in this article I will list the 4 best natural home remedies that will help you in lowering of sunburn pain and in the skin healing process.

  1. Cold milk coatings. Fats and milk acid have calming effect on sunburned skin. Soak cold full fat milk on a soft towel or a strip and place it carefully on the burned skin. After 20 minutes wash the skin with cold water.
  2. Cool, sugarless tea. Main ingredient in this tea that helps in easing of sunburned skin effects is tannin. Boil the tea in a larger bowl and leave it to get cold. Then spray the burns with a sponge or spray bottle. You can use the used teabags as coatings around your eyes. It is recommended you use “St. John’s Wort” because of its cooling properties.
  3. Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is usually used for sunburn healing. Gel-extract of Aloe Vera is the best. If using a crème you need to make sure that it has a high concentration of Aloe Vera for the larger efficiency.
  4. Water. When exposed to sun your body gets dehydrated, and the skin becomes salt. In such situation your body starts draining water reserves from blood and other body tissues. To stop dehydration consequences you must increase liquids intake. The constant hydration of your body is necessary for sunburn healing. Drink more water!

Because of the fact that sunburn causes pain and can also cause danger from skin cancer emerging, you need to avoid large UV beams exposure. Sunburn protection is the best treatment for the health of your skin.

Disclaimer: Beside the fact that there are many useful tips on healing sunburn, YOU MUSTN’T avoid your doctor in case of sunburn. These are only home remedies, a doctor will check the true condition of your skin and tell you if there is a skin cancer emerging danger.
