Sunburn remedy

Sunburn is a common problem that everyone suffers during summer. The damage could be caused within fifteen minutes of exposure to the sun or UV rays. Dark-skinned people having extra melanin in their skin are better protected against sunburns than the snow white skinned. Applying sunscreen lotion before going out in the sun is the best practice against sunburns. Taking bath more than once especially during summer is advocated to prevent the sunburns from maturing. Aloevera gel is a natural anti-inflammatory extract that can mollify the burnt skin. Drinking large amount of water and fluids is part of the preparation against sun during summer. Consuming juicy vegetables like tomato (contains lycopene), carrots and potatoes in large quantities during summer is essential for summer skin care. Munching on watermelons will serve as a natural moisturizer for the skin. Lemon, oranges and strawberries promote in cooling your body. Nuts and fishes are well known goodies for your skin. Tomato and cucumber paste or tomato and buttermilk mixture can be applied on the sun burnt areas before you panic. A skin pack made from jowar, honey and egg is very effective against suntans. Keeping the affected area cool by constantly painting the sun burnt area with a cloth dipped in cold water or milk is important. Sandalwood paste works wonders with your damaged skin. Olive oil along with vinegar should also be included in your arsenal to fight sunburns.
