A nice suntan can make you look more radiant, but if you spent this past Memorial Day weekend by the beach or lake, you may notice that your complexion is looking a little more red than normal. Although we know that an overexposure to UV rays can lead to premature wrinkles, many women (and men) don’t let this fact stop them from lying out in the sun.
If your skin is feeling peeled and painful this morning, there are some all-natural remedies that may be able to provide sunburn relief. Take a look at some of the products you may already have in your fridge.
- Chilled potatoes: “Potatoes are a very well-known all-natural pain-reliever. You might be tempted to eat them, but don’t. A few slices of raw potato on the spot that ails you provides an awesome respite from the sun’s rays,” writes a blogger for Café Mom.
- Cucumbers: If you forgot your shades this weekend, soothe under-eye sunburn with slices of cool cucumbers. Next time you’re in the sun, remember to cover up this delicate area because too much exposure to the sun may result in crow’s feet. Also, think about restoring moisture in this area by purchasing a night cream.
Even if you’re diligent about using effective sunscreen and sunburn remedies, you may still notice the long-term effects that sun exposure can have on your skin. The good news is that a chemical peel procedure can improve the texture of sun-damaged skin, making you look younger and healthier.
