Sunburn

Sunburn is the name of a burn that results from exposure to ultraviolet radiation and results in the inflammation of skin. Over exposure to sun rays and ultraviolet light are the most prevalent causes of sunburn. Though the problem does not seem to be too severe, in worst cases, it might lead to death and even permanent disability. Possibility of getting skin cancer is also not ruled out. Some of the symptoms of sunburn include pain, heat and redness in the affected area, which also becomes tender to touch.

Take two washed potatoes, cut them into small chunks, and place them in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until the potatoes turn to liquid form. Add water, if they look dry. Pat the burned areas with pulverized potatoes. Wait until the potatoes dry, then take a cool shower.

  • Avoid excess sun exposure like excess outing and swimming.
  • Never scrub your face excessively and always use natural soaps and lotions.
  • Do not apply milk cream or oily lotions to the sunburn affected area as they lead to much pigmentation and damage to the skin.
  • Drink plenty of water everyday as it keeps the skin moisturized which is sunburn affected and acts as a good substitute of the fluid which you lost by sun exposure.
  • Develop a practice of daily skin cleansing using natural face wash or mild soaps.
  • Apply natural sun protective cream on the skin before going out to the sun.
Other Remedies

  • Aloe Vera is commonly used to treat sunburns. As well as providing soothing relief, it may also assist in the healing process. Apply to the affected areas as needed. Although the gel extracted directly from an aloe Vera plant works best, if you don't have ready access to one, you may use an 'over the counter' Aloe Vera Cream that contains the gel.
  • Apply a mixture of one part olive oil and one part vinegar to affected areas and wash it after an hour. This is another good home remedy for sunburn.
  • Make a mixture of wheat flour mixed with milk, olive oil, barley flour, honey, and raw egg white paste. It will be a best facial for sunburn skin.
