For thousands of years people have used the soothing gel from Aloe Vera for the relief of sunburn. A
|We remember our Aloe Vera Gel when we are in the sun!|
If you get to much sun ..which is often the case at the beginning of warmer weather for treatment of a mild to fair sunburn ...cover frequently with properly stabilized organic Aloe Vera gel. Repeat often. This treatment will reduce the pain, stiffness and the amount of peeling.
For the treatment of a heavy sunburn ...time is critical. Giving first-aid as soon as possible reduces the chance of complications because burned cells heat-up and burn more skin cells.
Keep the skin wet with gel. Aloe Vera is an astringent and will tend to tighten and dry the skin unless kept wet or used along with some skin oil ...such as olive oil or coconut oil.
