The Shoporganic Sunburn Survival Guide! Natural solutions for sunburn...

Natural-solutions-for-sunburn

What to do if you’ve run out of Sunumbra sunscreen and left your Hemporium sun hat at home? Well, what happens, is you get sunburnt! I should be way past the age where sunburn should happen to me, I really do know better! However, these past holidays, I found myself a not-so-fetching shade of red after a day spent on the Hermanus Country Market. I had spent most of the day in the shade of a beautiful bluegum tree, only to find out that reflected light can burn one just as easily as direct sunlight!

So what does one do when caught red-nosed?

Step One: Wash your face and other affected areas with cool water, use Dvine Greens gentle Castille Soap, or Esse Gel Cleanser.

Step Two: After patting dry, apply Mioja Wild Ginger Stimulating Mask and leave on for 15 – 20 minutes. This is wonderfully soothing!

Step Three: Rinse face and wash again with Dvine Greens Castille soap or Esse Gel Cleanser. Wash body with Dvine Greens Castille soap, using tepid water.

Step Four: Pat face and body dry with soft towel, taking care not to drag or scratch skin. On face and body, apply Lulu & Marula Refreshing Tonic Mist.

Step Five: On face, apply Esse Omega moisturiser and on body Beautiful Earth Body Lotion for babies, with essential oils of May Chang and Calendula.

Step Six: Drink Bach Flowers Rescue Remedy for the shock and drink plenty of water throughout the night.

These are exactly the steps I followed and the products I used, the next day, my skin was no longer sore and did not peel, even though I had such a bad burn that I had shakes and cold sweats during the night!

I followed the same routine for the following few days and my skin now is a lovely golden brown, with no signs that I ever got caught unawares!

Needless to say, I’ve stocked up on sunscreen and my hat is firmly in my bag!
