How to treat Sunburn

Sunburns are damage from the sun. When you get too much sun, the UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun actually burn the skin. The skin turns red and may be sore to the touch.

Sunburns put you at greater risk for skin cancer, lupus, cold sores, cataracts and other skin damage such as wrinkles and brown spots. The best treatment for sunburns is preventing them by covering up and using a sunblock.

Aloe Vera is known as the “burn plant,” the perfect natural remedy for a bad sunburn, and according to some studies Aloe Vera can help. Initial research has shown Aloe Vera aids the skin in healing from sunburns and mild burns. In addition, Aloe Vera can moisturize the skin, helping you avoid the peeling normally associated with sun damage.

By applying Aloe Vera gel to your sunburn, this should help the itching and stinging that is normally associated. Although Aloe Vera can be used to treat minor sunburns, more severe burns may require medical care from your doctor.
