Protect Yourself: Home Sunburn Remedies

Aidan Koch

The 4th of July is just around the corner, which means the kick off to  sunburn season. Between lying on the beach and standing by the BBQ, a burn could  be the difference between 10 and 30 minutes in the sun! Your skin is damaged no  matter the severity of the burn and it’s smart to let it relax a little with  these clever, home care remedies.

Cool it down with running cold water or a soaked cloth or keep it moist with  a dose of witch hazel.

Most people know about aloe vera, and its always nice to have a plant around you  can clip a stem from, but what about lavender or vitamin E oil? Lavender oil can  help relieve and prevent peeling and E oil is an incredible moisturizer.

Check your kitchen for the following items: oatmeal, apple cider vinegar, milk, yogurt, honey and tea. All have soothing qualities that when applied  to burnt skin can really help out. With the vinegar or tea, you can add them to  your cooling bath and let it really soak in all over.

Of course, sunscreen and a hat or umbrella will do a world of wonders in  prevention.
