With summer not too far away, people across the country will be heading outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather. Unfortunately, they’ll also be exposing themselves to the sun’s rays, increasing their chance of sunburn if they’re not careful. This year, don’t just heal your burns with cream, use soy skin care products instead.
It can be very painful when we get a sunburn. Between the burn and the eventual itching, sunburn can really make you uncomfortable – often for days at a time. When the day has come to an end and you’re looking to take care of a sunburn, start by first taking a very cool bath to help cool your skin down. The calmness of the bath is perfect as you can soak in the cooling water, as opposed to taking a shower where the continual blast of water can be painful on your skin.
Once your bath is done, it is time to apply a cream, lotion or oil to your skin. While the common convention is to use aloe – which is definitely a beneficial element for burns – using a lotion that contains soy can be a great benefit, as well. Having soy in your after-bath care routine will help rehydrate the skin and prevent the dryness and loss of moisture that’s common as sunburns heal. Soy will also help keep the moisture in your burnt skin, too, preventing it from drying out even more. Try the S.O.S. Body Quencher, a specially designed conditioning spray that’s perfect for use after your bath or even after a day in the sun at the beach or pool to help rehydrate your skin.
Soy will also help with the elasticity of the skin and keep it from severely cracking as the sunburn begins to peel. This may not get rid of your sunburn overnight, but it will make the healing process a whole lot less painful.
