10 All Natural Remedies for Sunburn

-Natural-Remedies-for-Sunburn

Summer is in full swing and by now most of you have had a a sunburn (or two). While it is best to apply sunblock often while outside, the occasional sunburn is bound to happen so make sure you’re prepared with these all natural remedies.

  • Stash some aloe gel in the refrigerator and apply liberally for instant, cool relief
  • Heal a sunburn overnight using apple cider vinegar and coconut oil
  • Create a cooling remedy by liquefying 2 cold cucumbers and adding some cornstarch or baking soda until a thin paste is created. Apply to affected area as needed.
  • Make cold compresses by soaking a clean cloth in a bowl containing equal parts milk, ice cubes and water. Hold the cloth on the burned area for about five minutes and repeat three times. The milk has soothing anti-inflammatory properties while the cold temperature help constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling.
  • Rehydrate after spending time in the sun. Water and non-caffeinated beverages are best.
  • Apply plain yogurt to sunburned areas and allow to dry for approximately 5 minutes. Rinse and carefully pat dry.
  • Make a thin paste of cornstarch or baking soda and apply to affected area as necessary.
  • Toss some clean potatoes (skin and all) into a blender and liquefy. Soak cotton balls or gauze in mixture and apply to burned areas. Repeat as necessary.
  • Brew some mint tea (1 quart water, 5 green tea bags, 3 cups of fresh mint leaves) and chill completely in the refrigerator. Spray, pour or apply directly to the burn. Repeat as needed.
  • Spray or apply pure unfiltered apple cider vinegar directly on sunburned skin and allow to dry.
  • Create a cooling remedy by liquefying 2 cold cucumbers and adding some cornstarch or baking soda until a thin paste is created. Apply to affected area as needed.
