When Tan becomes Burn!

Although being tanned looks healthy we all know its not good for us BUT there are times when it happens despite our best plans whether its windburn or reflection off the snow.

After Sun Lotions definitely sting on a raw face but here is one that doesn’t:

1/4 cupfull-fat plain yogurt

2 tablespoons –  Oatmeal

Mix thoroughly and apply to your face, decollete or whatever part got burned!   Lie back and relax for 10 mins before rinsing off with tepid water.

This will soothe the pain and rejuvenate.

Its actually a good mask for exfoliation too..can be massaged into skin (oatmeal as a gentle exfoliate and natural acid in the yogurt)  but not when your face is sore.

  1. That´s my breakfast! Ok, I always got that at home :-)
    Great tip. Aloe Vera helps (cut off a leaf and use the juices), too and if you´re really old-fashioned, advice from our grandmas: use your own urine, as what I´ve heard that should help.
    But I´ll stick to the other recipe…

    Aloe Vera is great for this…. but the gardener ripped up my Aloe bed! (Actually Aloe is great for a lot of things including heartburn or acid stomach – mix with juice to drink)

    Thank your Grandma but I’ll save that one for desperate times 😀 – try a solution of vinegar instead (add a cupful to bathwater or washing water, or soak a cloth in vinegar and water and place over affected area) this will adjust the ph of your skin. Burned skin has a different pH and vinegar is closer to the pH of ‘normal’ skin and hair.
