Summer and sunburn come hand-in-hand. If you forget to apply sunscreen, get overexposed to the sun, or have a long day out with friends, it’s difficult to avoid sunburn in the scorching heat.
Luckily, aloe vera helps to eliminate or reduce the harmful effects of sunburn. Easily available in most house gardens, aloe vera is one of the most common ingredients in every Indian DIY skincare. This could include mixing the aloe vera extract in your homemade face pack or applying it directly on your skin for instant relief from any kind of irritation.
In today’s busy life, many people do not have much time to spend on skincare. Hence Yahvi has brought Aloe Vera into your regular products to make your skincare easy yet effective without much effort. We have a collection of Aloe Vera-specific skincare products from face wash to body butter, that will help you treat sunburn and any other skin issues.
But before moving any further into the blog exploring how you should plan your aloe-vera rich skincare routine, let us first understand what sunburn is and how Aloe-vera works and helps to heal your skin from sunburn.
Sunburn occurs when the skin is exposed to UV radiation from the sun. This radiation damages the skin cells and can cause redness, pain, and inflammation. Aloe vera contains several compounds that can help alleviate these symptoms and promote healing.
One of the key compounds in aloe vera is acemannan, a polysaccharide that has anti-inflammatory properties which mainly help to reduce the redness and swelling associated with sunburn. Acemannan also stimulates the immune system, which can aid in the healing process.
Aloe vera also contains antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, that can help neutralize the free radicals that are produced by UV radiation. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to skin cells and play a role in the aging process. By neutralizing these free radicals, aloe vera can help prevent further damage to the skin.
In addition to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, aloe vera also has moisturizing and cooling effects on the skin. This can help soothe the pain and discomfort associated with sunburn.
Plan Your Complete Skin Care with Aloe Vera
Cleanse Your Face
Start your skincare by cleansing your skin with Aloe vera. Yahvi’s Face Wash Neem, Aloe Vera & Khas is a great product for this summer. Along with Aloe vera, it also contains neem and khas which help to reduce the damage from sunburn, fight infection-causing bacteria, and calm down irritated skin. The Ayurvedic face wash gently cleanses the pores of the skin, pulls out dirt and pollution, and leaves you with clear radiant skin.
Exfoliate with Face Scrub
In summer, your skin produces excessive sebum and sweat which clogs your skin pores and triggers many skin-related issues. The effective way to avoid such skin problems is to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. Include the best scrub for oily skin that unclogs the pores, removes dead cells, and deeply cleanses your skin without stripping away the natural oils.
Yahvi Face Scrub Apricot With Walnut & Aloevera and men is one of the popular face scrubs rich in Vitamin A and fatty acids which ensures that your skin is getting deeply cleansed and nourished.
Hydrate Your Skin with Aloe Gel
If you are dealing with redness or rashes, applying a generous amount of aloe vera gel after washing your face is highly recommended. It helps to reduce redness, provide relief from any irritation and keep your skin hydrated.
Aloe vera gel is also great for sensitive skin because it is a purely natural and fragrance-free moisturizer. The anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce irritation and deeply hydrate your skin. You can feel an instant plump and glow on your face.
Moisturization is Must
Some people avoid moisturizer in summer because it makes their face sticky and oily. But did you know that avoiding moisturizing your skin can trigger the oil glands to produce more sebum and cause skin problems like acne and blemishes?
Hence, you must include a good moisturizer in your summer skincare routine to keep your skin moisturized. Yahvi Illuminating Day Cream With Manjistha & Aloevera is a lightweight cream that doesn’t feel heavy on your skin and provides it with the required nourishment. The cream contains anti-inflammatory properties that help to heal your skin and reduce other issues like acne, blemishes, wounds, etc.
With Yahvi body butter cream, you can also include aloe vera into your body care regime. The Yahvi Body Butter Rich Coffee With Shea Butter, Aloevera & Coffee Extract is a must-have because it gets easily absorbed and hydrates your skin from deep within without making it sticky. It promotes collagen production, heals the damaged cells, nourishes it, and provides a youthful appearance.
In conclusion, aloe vera is a natural and effective way to reduce the symptoms of sunburn and promote healing. Its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, moisturizing, and cooling properties make it a valuable tool in the fight against sun damage. However, it’s important to remember that prevention is always the best approach when it comes to sunburn. Wear sunscreen, and protective clothing, and seek shade when necessary to keep your skin healthy and protected.
