Simple tips to Recover Quickly After Sunburn

Simple tips to Recover Quickly After Sunburn

Ouch! What you thought as a short visit for sunbathing, your skin starts to develop itchy sunburn soon after and boy it didn’t sit well – I mean, people are staring at the awkward patches on your body. Any time that your skin gets exposed to the sun, some may develop a healthy tan (though we don’t agree to the side effects) while another may develop some unsightly burn to the skin. Here’s what you can do to fix it, and provide some impromptu relief.

Sun burn doesn’t just exist as mere patches on your skin; they even cause you pain as well. If you do have constant pain in the affected area, take some pain reliever such as ibuprofen to ease the pain as well as the inflammations produced from the burn. The inflammations can also be reduced by applying some cortisone cream.

Taking a hot shower when you have sunburn is a big no-no as it will irritate your skin further. Your best bet is to keep your skin (particularly the affected area) ‘cool’ at all times. That includes a cool shower/bath, using a cold compress on the burned skin, or simply applying some menthol/aloe vera gel regularly to soothe the skin (it even reduces the chance of the skin to develop infections).

If the skin starts to peel on itself, then it’s safe to do so. Though I don’t mean you can touch the burned skin unnecessarily – you may create skin infections from that habit.

Use the gel all the more if the burned skin starts to develop blisters. And don’t pop it – of course, with sterilised tools – unless the blister too large, or it covers at least 20% of your body, consult your doctor ASAP.

It’s no brainer, but wearing protective clothing is also essential even if you’re not going out. The key is to protect the burned area from extra irritation (as if the skin hadn’t had enough already). Make sure it’s loose and covers up burned skin and you’ll be fine.

And if you do go out, applying a good dose of sunscreen is all the more better. Especially in the sunburnt skin, a dose sunscreen mix with a moisturising lotion will certainly help to soothe and protect your skin.

A burnt skin means you need to up your daily water intake all the more, to speed up the repair and recovery process. No caffeinated drinks, please! Ditch the frappe and switch to green tea for the time being as the tea is packed with a good dose of antioxidants, which is essential for skin repair.

A point to remember here though sunburn is typically can be treated by yourself; if you starts to experience a number of symptoms such as dizziness, chills, or intense pain; you need to seek medical attention, like immediately.

Cover Up Your Skin In Seconds!

Cover Up Your Skin In Seconds!

Compared to lipsticks, I would agree that concealer is you must-have  for your whole look because trust me, nobody is that flawless, unless you really eat super healthy and you don’t have any problems, at all.

A concealer, just like the name, is needed to conceal any flaw that you have on your face, so you’ll look fresh, awake, and energetic. And what you used to have flesh-toned concealers, there are also colour-correcting ones that work to neutralise any patches of uneven colour on your face. So without further ado, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty, should you have one of the following skin flaw mentioned below.

Dark circles or panda eyes – who hasn’t had them? Seriously, nobody wants to see that panda or red, puffy eyes before the conversation even started Contrary what people might think, getting enough sleep is a luxury and with the fast-paced world we’re living, it’s hard – hence you get dark circles .

What you need is a yellow-toned concealer with a shade lighter than your current skin tone. Apply some eye cream to plump up the area and wait until it absorbs well into the skin. Dab and tap (not smoothing them over) with a concealer brush until bluish tone from dark circles fade away smoothly and naturally.

For extreme panda eyes like Po, a colour-corrector will provide more power – pick pinkish corrector to counteract the green and bluish tones. A good rule; the darker your skin tone, the darker colour corrector would be.

Reddish acne pops out of nowhere? Not to worry – after a dab of benzoyl peroxide, cover up with a dab of concealer with the same shade of your skin tone, to even the color out. The same steps also apply if you have acne scar or minor cuts, as it’s still a possibility that you can minimise their appearance.

As for wrinkles, a concealer is certainly up for the job. After moisturising your skin, apply concealer by dabbing them onto the area by creamy formulations (powder can settle into wrinkles, making them more noticeable). You can use concealer brush for precise application and to build up coverage, depending on the severity of your wrinkles. Here’s a tip: team them up with some light-diffusing powder to reflect any light from coming at the lines.

Sounds simple, doesn’t it the key is to use concealer to hide the flaws and not making them more obvious with off-white spots on your face. So get out and try out the technique now, I’m sure the flaws that you’ve been having can be cover up nicely.
