No one plans to get a sunburn, yet at some point, we all seem to get them. Even the most cautious person can walk away from the beach with a burn. A bad sunburn can ruin a vacation, a day filled with outdoor adventures, or even just lounging inside with a good book or your favorite TV show. Who can relax or have fun with all that painful, hot, itchy skin? Then, when it’s a real bad burn, there’s the blisters, peeling, and flakes of skin shedding off all over your sheets. Gross!
Sunburns happen to the best of us. Thankfully, there are ways to stay comfortable while your body heals, and we are here to help! Let’s start with the most well-known burn remedy: Aloe Vera Jelly. Plain, or with the skin soothing addition of Lavender, this is a must-have for sunburned skin. For added instant relief, try chilling your aloe in the fridge before applying it. This is also a great idea for other skin soothing body products, such as our Lavender Body Cream or Organic Healing Balm. Also, when applying any of these products, consider gently patting the moisturizer on, rather than rubbing it, to avoid aggravating your sensitive skin and possibly prolonging the healing process.
