Sunburn usually occurs due to excessive exposure to UV rays. Also, another cause of sunburn can be artificial UV rays such as the lights which are used in tanning salons. Sunburn is common in people who have outdoor hobbies such as skiing, golf etc. In this article I am going to highlight some of the home remedies for sunburn, which are as follows:
- One of the simplest remedy is to always wear glasses to shield your eyes from the UV rays. This may seem too simple but many people ignore the simplest solutions, hence it is worth mentioning.
- Sunscreen lotions also help a lot to protect you from UV rays.
- Another precaution you can take is to keep yourself as much covered as possible.
- On the day on which you are planning to go out, consume more water than normal since the skin looses water when exposed to sunlight.
- When you are going out on a sunny day always use a cap or hat.
- If you are already affected by sun burn then apply Aloe Vera cream to the affected areas. Aloe cream acts as a soothing agent for the skin and reduces the effect of sun burn.
- Another great remedy for sunburn is tea without sugar.
- Avoid harsh chemical soaps and lotions while washing your sun burned face as it may cause inflammation.
- While taking bath mix a few drops of rose water. This will have a soothing effect on your skin.
- Also, Aloe Vera is a natural sunscreen; hence always apply Aloe Vera cream before going out in the sun.
- If you are affected by sunburn, then a 15- 20 minute tub bath can do you much good. Just keep in mind that the sunburned parts of your body should be immersed in water throughout the bath.
- If you have suffered sunburn on any part of your face, then place a slice of tomato over that part.
There are many more home remedies for sunburn; these are the simplest ones. The main advantage of home remedies is that they have no side effects, but as always consult a medical professional before trying any of these.
