Beauty Secrets: Sun burns

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.
