We all love a "healthy" glow, which is why most of us probably spent this past Memorial Day weekend out in the sun trying to get a nice tan. However, we also know that soaking up too many UV rays can be bad for us in the long run – leading to premature wrinkles and even skin cancer. If you exposed your skin to too much sun this weekend and are now looking a bit redder than before, you may already own items that can help relieve a sunburn.
Take a look at some all-natural sunburn remedies that can be just as effective as aloe:
- Cucumbers: It's important to cover up your eyes with stylish glasses to prevent burns and crow's feet. However, if you forgot your glasses at home this weekend, your eyes may be looking a bit red and puffy. Simply slice up a cucumber and apply this cool veggie to your peepers.
- Aspirin and water: "You've probably heard of using aspirin when you've got a zit, right? Well this works the same way," suggest a blogger for Café Mom. "Make a paste using aspirin and water and smooth it over the burned area for temporary pain relief." Or if you don't have an aspirin in your house, you can always make a similar paste with cornstarch, which is known to provide relief to irritated skin.
If you've already begun to see signs of facial wrinkles brought on by exposure to the sun and other factors, there are nonsurgical procedures that can improve your appearance and help you restore your youthful glow.
