Sunburn can be the worst thing for your skin. It not only makes it dark and dull, but also robs it off its natural moisture by making it dry and leathery. More importantly, it is very difficult to repair sun damaged skin, and you mostly end up slathering creams and gels, and yet your skin feels tight and damaged.
Stop wasting money on expensive sun damage control creams and serums available on the market as you are never really going to achieve the desired results. You need a trusted natural treatment that will improve your complexion, remove the tan and make your skin soft and supple. Simply rummage your kitchen cabinet for some very common ingredients and put together this hydrating face mask that will heal your sunburn and bring back your natural glow. This is such a nice, soothing face mask that you will want to apply it even after achieving the desired results.
1/3 cup Yoghurt
1/4 cup warm honey (it is easier to work with warm honey, blends well)
2tsp Olive oil
Method of Preparation:
In a small bowl, first blend the honey and olive oil into a homogeneous mixture. Further on, tip in the fresh yoghurt into the bowl and combine thoroughly till it forms a fine paste. Your natural face mask is ready to use.
Now, cleanse your face with a cotton ball dipped in rose water and then apply the mask in a thin layer. You will feel an instant cooling sensation, which will be a great relief for your sun-burnt skin. Allow it to dry fully for about 15 minutes and then rinse off with cool water. Your skin will feel soft and glowing just after one use. But for better results, repeat this ritual thrice a week for about two weeks. All the damage from the sun would have healed and your skin will be softer and brighter.
Yoghurt will help cool the sunburn and expedite the skin healing process.
Honey is a natural hydrating agent that helps heal skin which is dry, tight and sun damaged.
Why Olive Oil
Olive oil is a wonderful skin softener and also has anti-inflammatory properties that helps soothe the burning sensation in a sun-burnt skin and make it soft and nourished. Olive oil penetrates through the skin easily and repairs all the dryness.
