Sunburn, that is, burns on the surface of the skin caused by excessive exposure to the sun, it is best to use aloe vera gel frequently to remedy it. It is a natural product that provides immediate soothing relief and promotes the healing process. Whether you live in a sunny resort or not, this is also a natural complement to any massage or body therapist’s practice.
Vacation destinations that are much sunnier than where people live often cause painful sunburns. This is just a fact. Although there are a large number of public service announcements warning of the risks and imminent dangers of skin cancer, and almost every store provides too much sunscreen and sunscreen to help prevent sunburn, this is indeed the case. However, the most common and unexpected souvenir brought home from a sunny holiday is, literally, sunburn. Of course, when the epidermis recovers from damage, there is no unsightly peeling, flaking, and itchy skin, and any sunburn is incomplete.
Growing up in Southern California, I happened to know one or two things about sunburn~ In fact, it was much more than I wanted to know. Specifically, I grew up in Los Angeles and spent almost every Sunday and even some Saturdays of my childhood on the beach. After a week of hard work, my mother likes to go to the beach to relax, lying on the beach, holding a good book, and sunbathing. Our business ~ my brother’s and mine ~ is playing in the waves, digging endless holes in the sand. We are often asked if we are going to dig in China. No, just dig. As a result, every Sunday we return home exhausted and sunburned.
Every spring, starting in the early 1960s, for diversity, my family will venture a hundred miles east to the Palm Springs desert. The crystal clear blue sky of the desert, the swaying palm trees, the hot sun, the sparkling pool, the warm night temperature and the indigo sky full of countless stars welcome us. Sometimes we only go for a weekend, sometimes we only go for a week.
My brother and I would play in the swimming pool on hot desert days ~ shivering in our air-conditioned motel room at night, using the then “new” product Noxzema to relieve our raging sunburn. Throughout the sixties and seventies, the white cream in the cobalt blue jar was the staple food of our family. Developed as a sunscreen in 1914, it was originally called Townsend R22. In the early 1960s, it was discovered that it could also improve eczema, so it was renamed Noxzema and relaunched. The three main ingredients of Noxzema skin cream are camphor, menthol and eucalyptus. Camphor is a natural pain reliever; menthol comes from the peppermint plant and has cooling properties. Eucalyptus acts as a moisturizer and can provide short-term, soothing soothing effects.
At that time, we didn’t have sunscreen ourselves. The only sunscreen lotion I remember was Coppertone, which was famous for its advertisement on the billboard that the puppy pulled the bottom of the little girl’s swimsuit. It is designed to enhance the tanning effect and does not necessarily protect the skin from UV rays. I remember that there is always a bottle of it at the bottom of the beach bag, but we rarely use it.
It’s not just obvious bright, sunny days that can burn your skin. On cloudy days, I get more sunburns on the beach or water than my share.
When I was a teenager, I often tried to destroy my skin. Tanning is “cool” and it is popular to use baby oil, Hawaiian tropical oil or cocoa butter to try to achieve the ideal brown berry skin tone. Some of my friends even use regular butter! This makes me want to cringe at what we have done to the skin of the future. Unfortunately, when you have ultra-white skin like me, it is difficult to get a deep tan no matter what product you use, so any of my tanning attempts are accompanied by ~you guessed it~painful sunburn, Then came the convenient playboy Noxzema treatment.
I remember the first time I tried to really “tan” on the beach ~ Give up all the teenagers digging and frolicking in the waves ~ Through actual “laying”. All day long, I lay patiently on the beach, rotating my body carefully every fifteen to thirty minutes. I have never been as boring as tanning in my life, and what is my reward for surviving boredom? A lovely second degree sunburn, my skin blistered after two weeks. Too bad, I really have scars for many years. Quite fun.
Fortunately, as the years go by, my pursuit of perfect tan has become less and less important, especially as more and more information shows the risks of unrestricted exposure to ultraviolet light. As I became more aware, I became more cautious about my skin.
It was the day when I caused my skin damage, and I hope that one day I won’t come back to bother me. Now I live full-time in a resort with almost all year round sun. Excessive sunbathing or tanning is actually no longer interesting to me because of the potential life-threatening risks and long-term effects that have an impact on skin quality. Living in a place where a long-term sun worshiper retires, I have seen years of sunbathing, excessive or even moderate, what effect on the skin, I have to say, it is not beautiful. I may lie down for ten to fifteen minutes every few days to get a natural dose of vitamin D, but other than that, I’m just not interested in sun exposure unless I’m hiking or working in the yard. It is important for the body to get a natural source of vitamin D directly from the sun, so of course I don’t avoid sun exposure completely, and I don’t recommend it either.
As a massage therapist in a sunny resort town, I have witnessed sunburns from tourists from all over the world. The Warriors suffered the most over the weekend. They tried to pack the week’s tanning time into the first day, so that their second and last day would be spent in pain. The sunlight where I live, like any place with plenty of sunlight and a lot of interference, really sneaks close to people. I will tell my visiting customers to be careful when they are here because the sun is so strong that you can almost get sunburned in the living room!
No matter where you go during the tourist season, you will see many really terrible sunburns. Some sunburns are almost funny. You can tell the person to forget to turn over, or to float in the swimming pool for too long, or not to wear sunscreen when playing golf or watching golf, or other things left interesting on the skin The activity of the dividing line. The most difficult thing to witness is that the obvious vacationers are burned to the ground. Every movement, no matter how small, is painful.
Working in a hotel spa and then being alone, I keep encountering unpleasant situations where people either come to participate in physical exercise classes, or they are too burnt to really get a massage or body scrub, or they end up at the end because of the burnt skin Cancel at a moment. After canceling too many times, I saw that this is clearly a problem that needs a solution.
When looking for a solution for my own sunburned client, my first brilliant brainstorm was to give them a Noxzema app, and I quickly rejected the idea. Not only is it expensive, but I know it will be too messy, and it has such a strong menthol smell, almost medicinal aroma. I also prefer more natural and ideal organic products. In addition, applying a white cream coating on your skin is not very attractive. It’s common to see a person’s nose or lips are white, but I think the whole body will be a bit more. So I browsed my massage supplier’s directory to find the right application. Sadly, almost all the products I found contained excessive synthetics and chemicals and/or were very expensive.
Finally, I discovered organic aloe vera gel ~ a product that is so natural and so simple. I think it is a magical skin elixir, so I integrate it into body care and applications to treat my clients’ skin, especially sunburned clients. Aloe vera gel also travels with me during my own tropical vacation, and I know I will be exposed to any place in the sun, just in case I end up getting burned, or for that matter, stings, or even some Annoying bug bites.
Organic aloe vera gel, also known as desert lily, because it is a member of the lily family, it has a long history as a healing plant, as early as the early Egyptians were used for skin and so on. It is very soothing when applied to the skin and prevents skin blistering and peeling unless the skin is extremely damaged. It also greatly speeds up the healing process. There are many more extensive healing properties of organic aloe vera gel, and it is now a new staple for many households for first aid purposes-both internally and externally. Burns, cuts, crumbs, rashes…the list goes on.
Many reputable sources, including major aloe growers, say that aloe has five main functions. The first is that it is an antibiotic, it is also a preservative and coagulant. It is also an analgesic, it is a growth stimulant for normal external and internal cells. This means that it helps to speed up tissues and skin surfaces that have been injured in some way. In addition, it is also non-toxic and non-allergenic. In addition to being an antidote, aloe vera has no side effects, which is known to occur frequently with synthetic drugs.
For an easy-to-obtain plant, these are some impressive healing properties. What dislikes natural substances with these wonderful properties, especially when the subject is sunburn?
Ideally, the best way to use aloe vera is to extract fresh aloe vera from the plant. I actually know that some people in this valley put a lot of aloe vera plants in their yards specifically for medicinal purposes in emergencies and other situations. Most people can’t or won’t do this, so the next best option is a commercial organic gel, or at least a non-organic aloe vera gel. It is really a miracle plant, especially when it comes to sunburn. It is also a very hardy plant and may be subject to a lot of abuse or neglect before it finally yields.
Aloe vera gel can be successfully used on customers. You can successfully use aloe vera gel whenever you are working or hiking in the yard, participating in a ball game, or overexposing to the sun. In my own experience, using organic aloe vera gel during sunburn can significantly (if not completely) reduce blistering and subsequent peeling. The healing time is really short.
If you are a bodyworker in a sunny place or resort, I suggest you consider adding aloe vera massage to your menu or service list, or at least adding an app to serve customers who over-massage in the sun. who knows? You are likely to be the one who saves the customer’s holiday! As a bonus, the amino acids in aloe vera help soften the skin, so if you are dealing with people with rough, weathered skin, they will definitely feel different after using aloe vera. Even if you do not live in a sunny resort town, you are still very likely to have customers come back from sunburn with souvenirs.Providing some type of aloe vera gel treatment to speed up the healing process for sunburned customers may help your receipt
If you plan to go to a sunny place where you will be exposed to more sunlight than before, my best advice is obviously to bring your sunscreen ~ and use it ~ but also bring some aloe vera gel glue. Of course, for sunburn, the absolute best and 100% successful remedy is not to take measures in the first place. However, despite taking various precautions, it is not always avoidable, so aloe vera in a suitcase or cosmetic bag is an excellent travel companion~ just in case. Unfortunately, you can’t always find it where you are going, it is indeed the best natural remedy, so take it with you. But please note that since it is a gel, if you take a commercial airline flight, you need to pack it carefully. Even the original bottle, if it exceeds a certain size, you will not be able to carry it on board.
If you are like me, have experienced a lot of skin…
