Home Natural Remedies That Actually Works For Sun Burn


Hi Reader! Am going to tell you 5 Natural home remedies that actually works for sun burn, these natural home remedies for sunburn will help your skin to heal and help your face to look radiant.

What is sunburn?
Sunburn is when your body tries to repair the damage caused by the sun to your skin cells by increasing the size of the blood cells around the affected area, it also releases chemicals which leads to your skin becoming in flamed. If the sunburn area can't be repaired, your skin gets rid of the damaged skin cells by peeling.


So, let's talk about the Natural Remedies you can use at home to get rid of this sunburn...

1. Aloe Vera gel




Aloe vera is a plant that grows anywhere, if you have it at your backyard, you are very lucky and if you don't have, you can easily get the gel from your nearest cosmetics shop. Aloe vera is one of the best natural remedies for minor sunburn, it can be great at soothing your skin, however, if you have severe sunburn, you will need to seek for a medical advice as soon as possible.

Aloe vera is a tropical plant that works wonders, its leaves contain a gel which can be used on a sore skin and wounds ( it is used by an Egyptian times which they apply on sore skin and wounds).  It is an antibacterial, anti inflammatory which helps hydrate to skin because its has high water content. It is good for all skin type, no side effects

How to use;

If you have this Aloe vera plant in your area, cool it in your fridge first before you use the gel directly from the plant leaves, and then before you apply if to your sunburn, you will need to test a small part of the gel on your skin in order to check that it doesn't cause any irritation but I doubts it, aloe vera does not cause any skin problems instead its moisturizing the skin but after you've tested it and your skin doesn't react to it, you should be able to use it on your sunburn, you can also add a layer of alcohol-free moisturizer on top of it too.

If you don't want to stress yourself and to save your time, you can buy a tube of aloe vera gel from the nearest cosmetics shop and apply it to your sunburn every few hours, it will start soothing your skin and also prevent it from peeling.



2.  Raw Honey




Raw honey is one of the home natural remedies that can help you to get rid of your sunburn, if you want your skin to heal quickly, dab on some raw honey or you can spread it on a cotton bandage and wrap it around the affected area. Raw honey is an antibacterial and will stop your burn from becoming infected.


3.  Essential Oils






Essential oils such as sandalwood, lavender, coconut oil, rosemary oil and eucalyptus are the best, if you are looking for natural home remedy for sunburn, stock up on essential oils.Though, there are plenty of it but some of the most commonly used oils for sunburn relief include lavender, sandalwood and eucalyptus.



  • Lavender essential oil offers antifungal, antibacterial and carminative properties that can help to soothe a painful  sunburn.
  • Sandalwood essential oil can be used to reduce inflammation while cooling burns. This oil is also capable of removing germs that can cause an infection.
  • Eucalyptus essential oil can provide a numbing effect, with mentholated properties offering a soothing effect. This oil also offers antibacterial properties to prevent infection.

4. Oatmeal


Oatmeal can actually be an effective home remedies for sunburn relief. Use can use a traditional method to cook the oatmeal instead of instant oats, cook as directed. Add a bit more water than called for, because it will ensure a runnier consistency that makes it easier to apply to the skin. Allow the oatmeal to cool completely, then carefully apply the paste to the affected area. Don't rub it into your skin because oatmeal can be grainy, it may have an exfoliating effect, it is not a good idea for skin that it is damaged by sun and it is also sensitive to touch.


5.  Cold Compress

The last home remedies for the sunburn I have here is cold compress. Cold compresses can help to absorb heat and provide immediate cooling comfort for painful burns. Placing ice directly to the skin is not a good idea which can result in cold burn on the top of your sunburn, it can also make the situation worse but if you don't have padded cold compress, you can easily wrap a hand towel around a plastic baggie filled with ice and apply it to your affected area every 3mins, it will depress the paining sunburn and it won't allow the burn to get worse..


I hope with these sunburn natural treatments, you can get rid of your sunburn using this helpful natural remedies...
