How to treat Sunburn Fast Naturally

Ayushakti brings you remedies to treat Sunburn Fast, Naturally. Sun related burn is the term for harm brought about by overexposure to UV Rays from the sun or different sources, like a sunlamp or tanning bed. Sun related burns can differ from gentle to extreme.

Sun Burn can be painful and extremely irritating. It can also make your skin blistered and tanned. If not taken care of, Sunburn can also give you Skin cancer.
It is important to avoid the situation completely and deal with the consequences.
Wearing Sunscreen and carrying a scarf or umbrella in an extremely hot environment can help you avoid the sun exposure directly onto your skin.

Sunburn reacts differently on different skin tones. Suppose you have a light or fair skin tone; your skin will turn pink or red, and if your skin is
in darker shades, it will turn darker and pigmented.

Using good quality sunscreen is a must, even if you dont spend much time in the heat. Choose a sunscreen that has more SPF. Preferably above SPF

Things that can worsen a sunburn-
Citrus Fruits
Vigourous rubbing or exfoliation
Laser hair removal treatment, etc

Now let us see a few remedies to help your skin soothe from Sunburn.

Hydration is key when it comes to soothing your skin from the inside. It is important to take care of your skin more from the inside than outside.
Cooling your body from the inside will help your skin to calm down. Putting water on a hot pan will make it sizzle. Likewise, the body is already heated,
We need to calm it down first before anything else.

Aloe Vera-
Nothing treats Sunburn better than aloe vera. Many skincare products claim they use aloe vera in their products because of the skincare benefit it provides.
Aloe vera brings back your skin's elasticity, cools it down, hydrates it from the outside, does not block your pores, tightens your skin and nourishes it.

Honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which helps your skin heal alot more soon than usual. It moisturizes your skin, as we need to avoid
any product which contains perfume, honey can play a huge role in moisturizing your skin.

Bonus tip- Do not use any makeup on your skin. It will worsen the case.
