5 At-Home Remedies To Try When Your Skin Starts Peeling

July 25, 2016 by Keren Leshem

I’m obsessed with the sun, so any activity that’s in it – tanning, swimming, just generally basking – you can count me in! But there’s that one issue that comes along with getting too much sun: peeling. When I was younger, it used to be fun to peel away my dead skin, but the second that I realized I was peeling away my summer tan, I stopped. You only get that natural glow for a few months a year, so you know, it’s precious. 

So then, if you shouldn’t peel it, what should you do when your skin starts peeling? Here are the top 5 home remedies to help ease the itchiness and irritation that comes with your skin peeling:

1) Olive Oil: Olive oil’s natural fatty acids make the ingredient a great natural moisturizer for dry skin. Try warming up some extra-virgin olive oil in the microwave and then massaging it into the dry areas so your skin absorbs it. Repeat this three times a day to see results!

2) Aloe Vera: Obviously aloe vera will be a great choice, since it’s known to help with burnt and dry skin, along with reducing irritation and redness. Mix some aloe vera gel with vitamin E oil and apply the mixture to the affected skin three times a day, and hope for some improvement!

3) Oatmeal Bath: At first you might be thinking ew, but oatmeal has great soothing qualities. Mix a cup of oatmeal into a warm bath and soak in it for 30 minutes, then apply moisturizer after you dry off. Try it out!

4) Milk: Milk’s natural proteinaceous qualities greatly help reduce peeling skin. Soak a washcloth in ice-cold whole milk, and apply it to the affected skin. Do this once a day until you see a difference.

5) Lemon and Sugar Scrub: Lemon’s acidity is great at dissolving dead skin cells and help reduce peeling. If you mix sugar, lemon juice, honey and olive oil, the product will be a great scrub that you can apply to your skin in circular motions to help the peeling.
