What are the best natural remedies for treating sunburnt skin and instantly reducing redness, swelling or pain? Sunburn is something Qi beauty knows a lot about – we live in Australia after all! We’ve grown up spending from dawn to dusk in the scorching sun, we’ve been burnt from tip to toe and now we specialise in the recovery of skin, even if the damage was sustained when you were in your teens. Here is the Qi guide for treating sunburn, immediately and for long term skin recovery.
Firstly, hydrate! Have at least 2 litres of water. Your skin receives moisture from your body, and if your body is dehydrated your cells will struggle to get adequate hydration to your skin.
Next, Spritz! The Qi beauty spritz contains Australian botanicals, and oils to actively soothe and calm inflamed skin. It is the perfect soothing formula for skin that is under stress following sunburn. Particularly if you are struggling to keep yourself cool. It can be used on the face and body, and it perfect for children too. Keep your spritz in the Fridge and apply it every hour.
Our other topical favourite for reducing the discomfort of sunburn is aloe-vera. Aloe Vera has been used to treat sunburn for years, it’s naturally cooling effect and antioxidant properties instantly work on skin to protect the effected area and assist in the natural recovery process. The best form of Aloe Vera is from the plant, you can pick one up from most local nurseries. It also works wonders for burns and wound healing.
Continue spritzing while you wait for redness and irritation to reduce on your face. In 2-3 days start using the Qi recovery oil to assist the natural healing of the skin. The natural and organic oils in Qi Recovery oil will penetrate deeper skin layers to actively work on the health of the skin and the repair process.
Sunburn and sun damage effect the way the skin recovers. With sun damage, the skin is less able to naturally repair and the effects can present in different ways:
- Premature ageing
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the face neck and décolletage
As we age the effects are more noticeable;
- Loss of elasticity
- Loss of skin bounce
- Skin is slow to heal
- Loss of skin luminosity
- Skin doesn’t appear dewy or glow as it used to
