    How to Get Rid of a Sunburn: 10 Things You Can Do

    How to get rid of a sunburn

    Don't let the sun scare you out of going to the beach.

    Almost everyone will get a sunburn at some point in their life. Luckily as we age it becomes easier to endure the resulting burning sensation. Sometimes though the burn may be annoying enough to ruin a day or two after an otherwise great vacation.

    Do you want to know how to get rid of your sunburn?

    While a little makeup might be able to help a sunburn look better the simple answer is:

    It may take a some time to "get rid" of your sunburn. Sadly, there isn't a way yet to apply a magical cosmetic to your skin and wipe away the sunburn.

    Sunburns fall into three categories First Degree Burns, Second Degree Burns, and Third Degree Burns. The sun can burn you in the same way that a fire burns your skin. "Wiping off" a sunburn would entail wiping off the skin tissue that is burnt.

    To help speed up the skin tissues healing process, and endure the pain, we have 10 solutions that will help you deal with the side effects of having a good time at the beach.

    1. Pain relievers

    The burning sensation and the pain from the burn can be partially alleviated by Pain relievers such as Aspirin, Tylenol, and Advil.

    2. Hydrocortisone

    A topical, Over the counter drug. Applying a 1% hydrocortisone cream to the affected portion of the skin, can help alleviate some of the burning sensation caused by the sunburn.

    3. Aloe Vera

    The common "goto" for sunburn victims: Aloe Vera. The Skin Care products that we sell below contain Aloe Vera, and for a good reason-It works!

    Facial Wipes 

    Find out if you are allergic to Aloe Vera first. On a recent vacation in Kauai a friend of ours discovered he was allergic to Aloe Vera. His legs began to show signs of inflammation, and assuming that it was caused by the sunburn, he applied even more Aloe Vera. Thankfully a trip to the hospital wasn't required. This might be because Kauai is such an incredible destination.

    4. Cooling Lotions Anti-Redness creams

    Aloe vera isn't the only thing that can cool off your burnt skin. Don't count out cooling Menthol lotions or Redness reducing creams. However use them in moderation: use it too often and you could dry out the affected area.

    Menthol is the natural extract from a mint plant.

    5. Oatmeal Bath

    Recommended by several sources, Oatmeal baths can help temper the burn on your skin, and aid your skin in the healing process. Studies show that the avenanthramides and phenols, chemicals contained in oatmeal, have anti-inflammatory properties. See the research here... 

    6. Vinegar Cider

    No, it is not an old wives tell, yes Vinegar Cider can temper the burning sensation of a sunburn. It is recommended that you dilute the Vinegar Cider, usually in a bath, maybe even in an Oatmeal Bath1 

    7. Cool compress

    A pretty simple solution to reduce the burn, a cool compress can help your skin feel a lot better. Don't use cold water, but rather a "cool" water compress is what we are looking for. You can find more information on doing this here... 

    Instead of water, cool milk is often recommended as an alternative.

    8. Topical Application of Food

    Cucumbers
    Grind a cucumber down into a paste. It can give a cool and soothing effect if applied on Sunburned Skin. Cucumber contains healthy nutrients including Vitamin A and C, folate, manganese, silica, sulfur etc. It also has healing properties caused by a high concentration of antioxidant and analgesic agents.

    Coconut Oil
    Coconut Oil can be used as a sunblock and it can heal sunburned patches of skin. Lauric acid, a major component of the oil, promotes the healing of sunburns.

    Live cultured yogurt
    The yogurt should be plain, not flavored, and it should also contain probiotics. The probiotics and enzymes are helpful in healing skin. It can aid in the recovery of pain and redness from burns.

    9. Witch Hazel

    Witch Hazel has been used topically to treat burns, skin irritation, and sunburns. Studies have shown that Witch Hazel counters the effects of UVA and its harmful anti-free radical activity. You can experience the cleaning and soothing properties of Witch Hazel with our Fearlessly Refreshing Facial Wipes. http://www.goadventuress.com/products/fearlessly-refreshing-facial-wipes

    10. Prevention

    "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
    - Benjamin Franklin(a regular user of Oatmeal Baths)

    Yes, a quote from the 1700's is applicable.

    Use Sunscreen

    The best way to prevent a sunburn...is by using sunscreen. Anything over SPF 15 should work. Reapply every thirty minutes or as directed by the sunscreen bottle.

    Simple, but learning about Prevention is most likely not the reason you are here reading this article

    Don't like the mess or lugging around an annoying sunscreen bottle?

    We have a natural compact wipe on sunscreen that you can easily carry in your pocket. 

    11. Rose Hip Oil(Extra)

    Containing essential fatty acids, Rose Hip Oil is an intensive moisturizer that can replenish dry skin, without over-treating non-dry skin. It can help soothe sunburns, and reduce the visibility of scars.


    Our Boldly Nourishing Moisturizer contains Rose Hip Oil

    3 Things That You Can Do to Make Your next Vacation Better


    Every day we go about our routines. We have tasks that need to be performed, completed, over and over again. A vacation for most, especially if we are traveling is a means to take us out of that monotony and provide us with some well-needed rest. It is a brief moment of time that allows us to relax, free our minds, and really give us the "breath of fresh air" that we need to return to work with more vigor.

    Here is a small guide to help make your next vacation better. We hope to create the foundation you need to help plan your next trip. Each section has a small subsection with a helpful link, or app that you can use to help you move one step closer to your vacation. 

    Plan Ahead

     

    Decide where you want to go. First and foremost before you decide to travel you must have an idea of where you want to travel to.

    It may not be a very concise location, and it may be as simple as, "I want to go on a vacation". However traveling, just like any other activity requires a creating a goal and a plan that you can work towards. You don't want to get on a plane and just go anywhere. You want to go somewhere, ideally somewhere better than where you are.

    Obviously:

    So, to get yourself started on the right foot, determine exactly what place is better than where you are? Where have you dreamed about visiting? What have you wanted to see with your very own eyes? Once you know you now have a goal to work towards and you can begin defining your plan to not only accomplish that goal of traveling but to also enjoy the trip while you are there.

    Okay, I'm ready:



    Now that you have decided where you want to go, you have to determine how long you want to be there. Everyone has responsibilities that they must attend to prior to traveling. For instance you may have a job, bills, family, a house, etc that you need to take care of on a daily basis.

    You need to determine how long you will be on vacation, and make the reasonable accommodations required so that these responsibilities are appropriately taken care of. Unless you are planning to travel indefinitely you will have to return to your normal life at some point, it is best if you return to it in working order.

    What will you do on your trip?



    Another part of determining how long you are going to be somewhere is determining what you are going to do while you are there.

    Some people prefer that everything is planned out prior to leaving, others, however, prefer to have the freedom to do what they want. Some prefer not to do anything. Those that do not plan what they are going to do argue that traveling is not about having a schedule, rather it is about having freedom from a schedule. Either way it is good to know what you can do while you are on vacation. This tends to be more important if you are going on a trip with others.


    You don't need to schedule anything, but a having good idea of what you can do can help. Prior to leaving you can accomplish this through various means such as reading a book, or searching on Google. While you are on your trip you can consult with a local travel agency, or you can find things to do just by driving around town. Many people would recommend consulting with a local travel agency as the information they have about the things you can do are not always available online or in books because they may not have the ability to do either.

    "Most local travel agencies do not have the resources to publish books or run a website about the activities you can do while you are visiting their country, so they are great resources to find special unknown activities"
    There is a great mobile phone app called Taylor that can help you find food, people nearby, a place to stay and activities if you are traveling.

    Pamper yourself

    Whether you are out hiking all day, or binge watching your favorite Television show, travelling gives you the ability to pamper yourself, either for travelings sake, or by removing you from the day to day monotony of a normal life.



    While you are on your, trip take time, as much time as you can, to do the things you want to do, and not the things you have to do.

    "Pampering" doesn't have to mean that you sleep all day. While on vacation pampering yourself really can include doing anything that you don't normally have the opportunity of doing.

    There are activities that you can do locally, such as shopping, going to a spa, getting a massage, or eating out and meeting people. If you travel to a foreign country, there are really unique items that you can find while shopping, or there are unique people that you can build new friendships with.

    These activities remove you from the work-life balance "mindset" leaving you with an "I'm living" mindset. This new mindset is the most recognizable when you return from your vacation, disappointed that you have to get back into a balanced work-life mindset.

    If you either want to pamper yourself by enjoying the local culture, or if you want to pamper yourself without having to leave your room, be sure to find a great room with amenities while you are planning. Many travelers recommend finding a room with a large bathtub to soak in, a good TV for movies, and a great bed.



    Of course no trip is complete without some time at the beach, some would even go so far as to argue that no trip is a good trip without spending ALL your time at the beach. We won't argue either way but if you are going to the beach: Rebekah George on the HLN Network did a great feature on how to glam up your day at the beach, which you can find here.

    Be at Home

    Traveling is more than an activity that you do, it is a mindset that you have.

    We all have our idea of what the ideal trip is, for some it is going on some great adventure, for others it is about meeting new people, or staying in bed the entire time. What makes traveling so alluring is the mindset of travel. You may create a schedule for yourself, but since it is not your work schedule, you enjoy the things you do, on the other hand, you may not have a schedule and you prefer to remain in your room.

    As a catalyst to put yourself in that "travel" or "I'm living" mindset, make yourself at home. Unpack your suitcase, put your items in the drawers, set your things in their place, almost as though you were moving into a new home. Even if it is a short stay, make yourself at home

    Finally, if you are the adventuring type immerse yourself in the culture. Use Taylor to help you find something to do, or meet a new friend. Get photos, and if you keep a diary record your day. Find the best restaurants, the best beach, the best hike, the best attractions. By seeing and doing the best things while travelling, you can really enjoy traveling for what it is.

    Look no further! These three favors will be appreciated by everyone on your guest list.

    Wedding season is going strong, which means if your guests are anything like us they’ve probably already attended a handful of nuptials already.

Customized shot glasses, door hangers, and koozies were fun at first, but now they just pile up in a junk drawer never to be seen again.

    Why waste your wedding budget on something that will just be tossed or forgotten?

    Instead, give your guests a keepsake they’ll actually use and think of you fondly when they do."
