Here are some tips used as first aid in this case:
- On sterile gauze, apply lavender oil and place it on the problematic area. Repeat every hour. Lavender oil is a natural antiseptic that quickly relieves unpleasant sunburns.
- Pour three teaspoons of dried flowers of St. John’s wort with 2 dl.olive oil. Then place them in a glass bowl and let them stay for about a week. Afterwards, apply the mixture on gauze and heal the sunburns. This is a very effective tool, but requires early preparation, so if you are planning next week to go on holiday, you should immediately start preparing it.
- Make dough out of flour and water and apply it to the place that was burned by the sun. However, this is useful only when it comes to a lesser degree sunburns.
- In a bowl, mix one cup of skim milk and four cups of water. Add a few ice cubes to the mixture. Stir, pour the mixture on gauze and apply it directly at the site. Let the gauze stand for 15 minutes, then take an hour break and repeat the procedure.
- Do not damage bubbles resulting from skin sunburns
- If you notice a burning sensation and redness of the skin, then it is a sunburn, so do not expose this place again in the sun
- Always use a high factor sun protection
- In particular, high factor protection should be used by people with light skin color because it produces less melanin in their case, and that means reduced protection as well
- Take care of the exposure of skin moles on direct sunlight
- Do not go directly from air-conditioned car to hot temperatures
