The scorching sun, despite careful protection before going out, still can not completely avoid the fate of sunburn. Since it can’t be avoided, master some knowledge of post sun maintenance and repair in time. Let’s have a look!
Generally, the skin after sunburn is very sensitive and fragile. In this period, the most important thing to do is to use clean water to cool down and wash. Do not use cleaning products. You can wash it with cold water or wet towel from time to time.
If the sunburn is serious, such as peeling or even blistering, it is more serious. It is best to see a doctor in time, and try not to use cosmetics during this period. If you feel that the sunburn is relatively light and has not reached the level of medical treatment, you can choose cleaning and maintenance products containing natural calming and soothing ingredients such as Chamomile, lavender, Hamamelis and Calendula to supplement moisture and oil, so as to prevent the skin from aging due to dryness and wrinkles.
It is also very distressing to have color spots after sunburn. The skin burned by the sun will often cause color spots, freckles or blackening. At this time, timely supplement of vitamin C is a more effective method. It can inhibit the formation of melanin and help to dilute the generated melanin. Usually, you can eat more fruits and vegetables with more vitamin C.
The care after sunburn is very important. To repair the sunburned skin, aloe is the best. Aloe has a special calming effect on the skin. Remove the epidermis after washing with fresh aloe, cut it into pieces and apply it to the sunburned part. This is the most natural and simple skin care method, which makes your skin feel like a long drought and sweet rain.
After sun care skin, the use of watermelon peel juice is also very effective. Mash the watermelon skin into the juice and mix it with honey to make the mask. This will make the pulp stronger and not dripping. Apply the face for about 15 ~ 30 minutes at a time, and then wash the face with water. Honey is rich in vitamins and glucose, which can moisturize and whiten skin, and has the effect of sterilization and disinfection, which is helpful to the repair of sunburned skin.
Finally, I would like to share a little knowledge about sunscreen. When choosing sunscreen products, try to choose sunscreen products in a broad sense that are resistant to both UVA and UVB. Avoid single function, and pay attention to the composition of sunscreen products when choosing sunscreen products. Sunscreen products without zinc oxide can not protect the skin well. There is no need for sunscreen products in previous years, because the shelf life of general sunscreen products is only 6 ~ 8 months after opening.
