Beauty secret - Sun burn

September 10, 2015



Summer is almost over, yet the sun is still strong.

What should we do when we are over exposed to the sun?

Over exposure causes burn, if your skin is burned, the first 

thing you need to do is COOL IT DOWN.  

Cool it down with a cold compress; an old remedy is to 

put potatoes on the burn which in turn would relieve the 

pain. Grate the washed potato (preferably kept in the 

refrigerator to make it cold), save the liquid from it, or you 

can use a blender to make a paste then soak the gauze and 

lay it over your burnt area.  When I was little I was staying 

with my grandparent during a winter vacation and I 

accidentally touched the stove with my leg and was 

severely burned,  my grandma immediately grated a potato 

and applied it to the burn area, then she wrapped it around 

with saran wrap.  And I was soon healed and I had no scar.

For minor sun burns, again cool it down with a cold 

compress.  Milk or plain cultured yogurt also works. 

Follow with hydrating moisturizer. I recommend INSOO

Intense Repair Oil which is one of my favorite products

we carry.  Secondly, hydrate by drinking plenty of water,

it's also a good idea to start taking a Vitamin C supplement.   

I read an article about a French woman who started taking 

Beta carotene and Vitamin E supplement just before going 

on her summer vacation in order to prevent her skin from 

aging due to sun exposure.  


Remember, sun exposure is the number one cause of 

aging.  Protect by using sun tan lotion with a high SPF, or 

even a hat -- or anyway you can.  


Beautiful skin begins with good habits and good products 

are a must.
