“Tan” is quite trendy these days. Men and women, both, want to get a tanned skin. It happens to add more to their sex appeal and personality. Most people get a tan naturally by sitting under the sunlight. However, if you are not taking a sun block for precaution, there is a high possibility that you might end up getting a sunburn.
Such burns then take a lot of time to heal. However, there are certain remedies that you can use at home in order to provide relief to yourself during that period of time. Let’s take a look at these remedies.
Baking soda bath
Taking a bath in cold water will always get you through this sunburn. You can always add up to the results by adding four tablespoons of baking soda in the tub you are taking a bath in. Soak the body for less than fifteen minutes so you can get rid of the irritation. Don’t use a tower or a cloth to dry your skin, in fact let it dry on its own once you are done with the bath.
You may also add oatmeal to the cold water in the tub. Approximately one cup of oatmeal is enough to work things out. Don’t stay inside the water for more than 20 minutes.
It’s a plant which is commonly available in super stores and nurseries. People even grow it at home. The gooey fluid that it contains helps in providing moisture to the skin. This fluid also aids with sunburn. Simply tear the leaf and apply the fluid on the areas that are burnt. This solution can be applied 6 to 7 times on a daily basis.
If you have been bullied by sun burns, don’t worry; a cool compress will do the work for you. Try not to use ice in the compress and rather opt for cold water instead. A moisten towel can do the trick as well. Compress the burnt areas gently. You can always mix baking soda or oatmeal powder to this water as well.
