Experts told how to comprehensively correct the effects of burnt skin after a day at the beach.

If your skin burned in the sun, try not to take until very hot baths or walk in bath or sauna. A cool bath with the addition of 5 tablespoons of baking soda or Apple cider vinegar will be very useful. After the bath do not wipe with a towel, allow skin to dry independently, the doctor advises Victoria Savitskaya.

“To neutralize the effect of free radicals, which are beginning to accumulate and cause rapid cell aging, eat and drink more beverages and foods that contain antioxidants. For example, green tea, chamomile tea, grapes with seeds. Drink plenty of room temperature water to moisturize skin from the inside. At the same time from any alcoholic drinks should be abandoned,” says the expert.

However, she recommends you to forget about any alcohol-containing cosmetics until the skin returns to normal.

If the skin has red areas, be sure to as soon as possible to lubricate their thick layers of gel or cream on the basis of dexpanthenol, for example, bepanthen or panthenol.

“If there is no cream or lotion, use an effective folk remedy – yogurt or sour milk. But in any case, do not lubricate the body with oil (butter and sunflower), as recommended by some “experts”, it will only aggravate the problem” – warned the doctor.

By the way, to relieve itch help cool compresses of calendula. They are prepared very simply – tablespoon of calendula flowers pour a glass of boiling water and infuse for half an hour. It is recommended to moisten the gauze or cloth in this solution and apply three times a day to affected skin for 20 minutes. Compress by the same recipe can be made from the Echinacea.
