Solution: Soothe Your Itchy, Dry, Sunburnt Skin

July 28, 2008 by SheFindsErin

There are hundreds of folk remedies for dealing with sunburn, and everyone you encounter seems to have a tried-and-true favorite that trumps the rest. But one thing everyone can agree on is that once you take the initial sting off, moisturizing is of the utmost importance. Use one of these heavy duty body creams rich in soothing ingredients to keep redness to a minimum, prevent painful tightness, and stave off that icky peeling phase for as long as possible.


Best for Always-Outdoor Divas: Though it may sound more like a pizza than a prettyfier, Mega-Mushroom Body Cream by Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins ($45) means serious business. Packed with a signature blend of exotic mushrooms (try saying "hypsizygus ulmarius," "reishi" and "cordyceps" five times fast!) and skin-imitating lipids, this cream from the Plantidote line combats all the outdoor toxins that are at war with our skin. Slather this on and say adios to damage caused by sunlight, pollution, weather, detergents, perspiration and friction.

Best for Exotic Eco-Friendlies: The best thing about Shea Terra's all-natural body products is that the entire lush line serves a double purpose. The rich, silky Miombo Mango Indigenous Silk & Shea Butter Lotion ($18), for example, soothes your burn with sweet-smelling mango from the Miombo forest in Central Africa. Sales of the indigenous mangos are keeping the forest—home to endangered elephants and exotic birds—from being torn down by foreign logging. Win win!

Best for Bargain-Minded Burners: In that long list of household items that soothe sunburn, milk is almost always at the top. Why not pull a double-whammy on your bummer of a burn by hitting it with milk and moisture in one fell swoop? SkinMilk Body Cream ($6) comes in a huge tub and is packed with skin-softening vitamins A, D and E on top of real milk proteins. As the saying goes, milk does a body good, and that includes your sunburnt skin, too.
