A note about Natural Sunburn Treatments and Remedies - Tips for Relief
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
This can be especially true after the cold months of winter when delicate skin is finally exposed to the sun again. While it does feel good to warm your skin under the sunshine, it's important to work to protect yourself from sunburn whenever possible.
Despite our best efforts, sunburns still happen to many of us, so it's important to know what sunburn treatments will not only work to ease your pain, but keep the skin healthy and avoid damage. Sunburn can not only cause different kinds of skin cancer, it can cause premature aging, too.
How to stop damage from sunburn
When you suffer from sunburn, if you don't treat it properly, there can be damage to your skin which cannot be repaired. One of the most important things you need to do in order to prevent your skin from becoming damaged is to stay out of the sun if you have sunburn. In most cases, your sunburn will heal up in a matter of days, so do your skin a favor and avoid further exposure to the sun's rays for a while.
The next thing you need to do as part of natural sunburn treatment is to treat your skin properly so that it heals quickly and you get back to having healthy, happy skin. As soon as you realize that you're sunburned, you could take a lukewarm or cool bath with apple cider vinegar. The vinegar will help to take the burn out of the skin, and the apple cider helps to reestablish the skin's natural ph balance.
You might also want to use cold compresses on your sunburn to take the heat out of your skin and help to prevent swelling. You could also try using aloe vera, which will help the skin cells to heal and regenerate and can ease pain. If you choose to use an aloe vera based gel, you might be able to find one that has vitamin A in it, which helps to speed the skin's healing process.
These are simple yet effective natural sunburn treatments and remedies.
In the past, it was thought that using creams would help to ease sunburn, but while a cream can help to ease itching that you might experience and help to keep skin moisturized, some experts feel that creams can actually work to lock in damage to the skin. Consider using baking soda or oatmeal in the bath to help ease itching. Plus, oatmeal can help to naturally soften the skin without using creams while you're healing.
How to ease the other effects of sunburn
You might not realize it, but there are other aspects of natural sunburn treatments. After all, your skin is burned, and this can cause you to feel slightly ill, with a headache and fever. Some people also experience a stomach ache when they have sunburned skin. It's crucial to remember that you are probably dehydrated, so it's essential to keep hydrated by drinking lots of water or beverages with electrolytes in them to help ease a headache and stomach ache.
Unfortunately, sunburn happens to many of us. They are painful and can leave us feeling miserable. The good news is that with the proper sunburn treatment, you'll find that you are pain-free and feeling better in no time.
