natural sunburn cures


Health Tip Of The Day: Witch hazel, milk and oatmeal are just a few natural remedies for sunburns. Here’s how to make use of them.

As much as we try to protect our skin from the blazing sun in the summer, nobody’s perfect and we’ve all ended up with a bit of a sunburn on occasion. If you’re not someone who turns into a tomato after getting too much sun like us, we sincerely envy you. And if you are, we’re here to help. Here are some of the best natural sunburn relief remedies that can help soothe your skin when it’s a little more red, inflamed and sensitive. Whip these up at home!

Witch Hazel Cold Compress

Thanks to its tannins, witch hazel can be a very effective anti-inflammatory option. Use it to help relieve sunburn inflammation by wetting a cloth with witch hazel and gently pressing it directly onto your burn.

Milk Cold Compress

The protein in dairy can be super helpful in soothing sunburnt skin. Simply soak a cloth in milk and place it directly onto the affected area. The milk will create a protein film that can help relieve pain and reduce the heat radiation from burnt skin.

Oatmeal Bath

An oatmeal bath can help relieve the itchy skin that comes with really bad sunburns and can help with inflammation, too. Pour dry, crushed oatmeal into a lukewarm bath and enjoy. Bonus: the bath will smell good as well! Read on for more natural sunburn-soothing remedies. [Swirled]
