Heal A Sunburn In ONE Night! Using Three Simple Ingredients!
This last week was a beautiful one! We had 70′s-80′s with sunshine all week! We could not get enough sun after being cooped up inside all winter. Unfortunately it never seems to fail for me that the first few days of nice weather, after winter, I forget to put sunscreen on or wear protective clothing. Fortunately my kids were either indoors during the recommended hours or wearing protective clothing so they did not get burnt but I was not so lucky. Below my neck got crisped! Ouch! It’s that nasty burn when you want to skip a shower completely (I assure you I did not skip any showers) because the warm water feels like needles on the skin. In my “lobster” state I had a thought, “if coconut oil is like the gold of oils then I should try it on my skin!” As I was walking down the stairs to my kitchen I noticed my aloe vera plant, *snip*! Once in my kitchen I grabbed some raw honey too, I figured it couldn’t hurt. I then proceeded to rub aleo vera, coconut oil and honey onto my tender skin. I slipped on an old tee shirt that I didn’t mind getting oil spots on and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning my skin felt cool (instead of blazing sunburn hot!), I looked in the mirror and I was a nice golden brown instead of a lobster red!
Now I must have a disclaimer at this point. I do not suggest you will be a nice golden tan if you go crisps your self and then use my remedy, I naturally tan with or without a burn so that is normal for me. Some of you may still be a bit pink but the pain, heat and yucky skin should subside. I have decided to try this for a few more nights to see if it helps with peeling. One other benefit has been how soft the area is now. This is a must try! The instructions are below! And for goodness sake be sure to protect yourself from the sun! A bit of a tan is okay but red of any kind, not so good!
Mae’s Sunburn Remedy…
- 3-4 in piece off an aloe vera plant, sliced in half
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil, in liquid form
- 1/2 – 1 tsp raw honey or propolis
The amounts above will vary depending on how much you need to cover. I used this for the area that a tank top does not cover on my chest.
Directions: Start with aloe vera, liberally rub all over affected area, let dry (30-90 sec), next take coconut oil and rub over infected area (over where the aloe was put). Next take the honey (I would suggest using a propolis tincture, I didn’t have one on hand I need to order more!) and rub into any areas that look more red or blistered. Then put an old tee shirt on and go to bed. Most if not all will be absorbed by morning. Take a warm wash cloth and wipe off any sticky spots. For maintenance continue the process the next night. Do this till the burn is either gone or better.
I would love to know how well this works for you! I do not want to “re-test” it to find out how well it will work for me again so if you are burnt and try this PLEASE let me know how it works for you!
