As we enter the long sunny days of summer with exposure to intensifying heat and light, it is time we gear up on our sun protection! While most of us prefer to slather layers of high SPF sunblock on our skins, it is equally important to carry out an ‘After-Sun Treatment’ regimen regularly to reduce damage to the skin and heal it from the severe effects of the summer sun.
Here we recommend you a few natural ointments that are great to treat skin damage associated with sun exposure.
Jojoba oil is a phenomenal repairing and stabilizing moisturizer for sun-damaged skin. It is rich in Omega 9, vitamin E, with sebum-like properties and can be directly applied on irritated skin to yield repair and nourishment. Jojoba oil also helps to soothe skin owing to its anti-inflammatory properties, proving a very effective treatment for sunburns. Furthermore, it is non-volatile, non-toxic, and has no recorded side effects, which makes it an ideal candidate for all skin types. The YellowBerry Jojoba Oil - all-natural and organically extracted, packed with active ingredients, is your go-to solution for the best after-sun treatment you can do while staying home!
Peppermint oil is an essential oil packed with many active ingredients. The most important of these is ‘Menthol’ which gives it its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-septic, and vasoconstricting (narrowing inflamed blood vessels) properties. Peppermint oil is an astounding reliever for sun-damaged skin as it not only soothes the skin but also prevents it from getting any infections. The YellowBerry all-natural Peppermint Oil is packed with essentials to suit your needs as an amazing after-sun skincare oil.
Aloe Vera is a miracle plant with virtually countless benefits for your skin! A layer of Aloe gel can not only help reduce the damage done to your skin from sun exposure, but it can also help to heal wounds and cold sores and keep your skin hydrated, moisturized, and glowing. It can be a great remedy in your after-sun skin care regimen. You can either extract fresh Aloe gel directly from the plant or you can use Aloe gel from over the counter as well. YellowBerry uses natural Aloe gel in most of its skincare products. Explore our shop to find out more.
The nourishing nutty-scented Shea Butter, known for its fabulous moisturizing properties, is packed with vitamin E which makes it an amazing after-sun reliever as well. Vitamin E helps to combat free radical damage from sun exposure. Furthermore, it helps maintain the moisture balance of your skin, keeping it an ideal condition for quick healing and repair. Shea Butter can be applied before getting exposed to the sun. YellowBerry’s Raw Organic Shea Body Butter is an effective yet affordable solution for your after-sun skincare. You’ll feel amazing even before going out!
