Have you or your loved ones maybe seen a little bit too much sun this summer? We're here to help.
The UV rays of the sun can cause some serious damage to the skin if exposed for a long period of time. Some symptoms include red, irritated and inflamed skin, dry and red hot skin with itching, pain, rashes, scars, wrinkles, blisters or skin peeling. Artificial sunburn creams and lotions with chemicals increase the chances of further skin irritation. Natural effective home remedies work best for sunburn without any side effects.
If you're one of those lucky people who have already purchased and use our amazing Magnesium Moisturising Cream you can apply this too! If not, lets see what we have lying around the house here;
-Magnesium Oil (of course)
-Vitamin E Oil
-Apple Cider Vinegar
-Aloe Vera Plant
-A couple of essential oils
-A natural moisturiser if you'd like a cream instead of an oil*
That should do it.
This mixture has saturated fats, lauric fatty acid and other unique combinations of fatty acids that heal sunburned skin and relieves from inflammation.
It will reduce the discomfort caused by peeling and excessive dryness of the skin.
It will nourish the dehydrated skin and moisturizes it.
It will also soothe the burned skin and tightens it to prevent lasting damages such as wrinkles, tanning, darkening the skin, etc.
The coconut oil acts as healing oil that gently relieves your skin from painful sunburn, cracking, blistering and peeling. Essential oils nourish the skin and aloe vera soothes the skin.
Mix 1/4 cup (or equal parts of) coconut oil, aloe vera liquid, (moisturiser*) and apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons of vitamin E oil, 3 sprays of magnesium oil and 3 – 10 drops of any of these these oils (neem oil, tea tree oil, rose oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, bergamot oil, tamanu oil, grape seed oil, rose hip seed oil or rosemary oil) in a bowl.
Freeze/refrigerate this mix for an hour.
Apply this oil/cream mix on the sunburn.
Massage gently and then leave for a few minutes to dry before putting clothes on.
Note: Do not use ACV if your skin is broken.
Repeat twice-three times daily untl desired result is achieved.
