Need a Quick Sunburn Treatment?

Here are Some Helpful Natural Methods

Green Tea

The only sunburn treatment that really works is the healing that naturally occurs over time as your body makes the repairs. However, you can support healing and lessen the pain and discomfort by avoiding further damage and supplying the right nutrients to support general body health. You can also apply some materials to the skin and in your diet to help healing along and provide sunburn relief.

Other than just waiting it out, here are some treatments options for sunburn:

  1. Get out of the sun, even indirect sunlight.
  2. A cool bath or applications of cool cloths can reduce the damage in deeper layers of skin.
  3. Clay poultice applications can bring very quick sunburn relief.
  4. Coconut oil can be helpful.
  5. Aloe vera gel - always have a plant growing in your house.
  6. Oatmeal bath with ½ cup of cooked oatmeal added to the water.
  7. Baking soda 1-2 cups in a bath. Soak for ½ hour.
  8. Essential oils of lavender or chamomile - add a few drops to a spray bottle with cool water or add 10 to 12 drops to a cool-water bath.
  9. Drink plenty of water.
And here are some things not to do:
  1. DO NOT rub skin dry, rather pat it.
  2. DO NOT use bath salts, bubble bath or oils.
  3. DO NOT break blisters as that can increase the chance of infection.
  4. DO NOT apply any oil-based products to the burned area - they can clog the skin's pores and keep the burn from "breathing."
  5. DO NOT use medications containing "cane" or "caine" at the end of the name. Many people are sensitive to these medications.
