Although it’s widely speculated that the less melanin you have, the more prone you are to getting sunburned. Individuals with more melanin may not burn as quickly, however, anyone regardless of skin color or tone can get sunburned. Whether it's due to too much sun exposure or a failure to apply sunblock as recommended, we are here to help. Below are a few remedies to soothe your inflamed skin.

 

1: Aloe Vera: Our Sun Kiss Serum is an excellent option to go from #ouch to #aaah. Sun Kiss is a vegan-based gel infused with aloe vera and a powerful combination of extracts to calm, cool and correct sun damaged skin. With an intoxicating scent that smells good enough to eat, but it's for external use only. 

If you don't have access to the Sun Kiss and are in need of immediate help, another alternative is the Aloe Vera plant. Touted as the "burn plant", the gel inside the cactus plant will ease your discomfort. The gel aids in moisturizing and speeding up the healing process. 
First, you will need to extract the gel from the leaf, place it into the refrigerator for 30 minutes then apply the chilled gel onto your skin. Repeat this process 5-6 times daily until improvement. 


2: Cucumber: Made of 95% water this super fruit is perfect to soothe and hydrate your inflamed skin. Simply pulse 1 large cucumber into a paste and apply the burned areas.

3: Bathe: Add 1-2 cups of any of the following to a lukewarm bath: soak for 15 minutes and moisturize with coconut oil.

 

  • Powdered Buttermilk
  • Witch Hazel
  • Baking soda
  • Oatmeal
Teas of chamomile, mint or green tea {bring 2 cups of water to boil, remove from heat and add 1 tea bag per cup of water. Steep for 15-20 minutes, remove bags and let it cool prior to pouring into the bath.)

 

4: Hydrate: Drink plenty of water to prevent the drying effect of sunburn. If you're not a fan of water try rehydrating by eating fruit. Consider watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe. Each of these fruits contains at least 1 cup of water.
