Summer is the season for sun! Getting outside, being active and staying healthy are some of the easiest things to do in the summer. Whether it be relaxing on the beach, swimming in the water, riding bikes, going on evening walks with your loved ones, or just enjoying your own backyard with the family, summertime is the best time to do it!
Soaking up all those rays can be good for your body, but when you get too much sun, we all know what happens!
We’re all too familiar with the red, painful skin that’s hot to the touch, sensitive, and itchy. And if it’s really bad, even blisters!
Sunburn is very common and usually nothing too serious. It’s most often self-treatable, self-diagnosable, and goes away within a few days to a week. But repeated exposure increases the risk of other things, conditions like skin cancer, wrinkles, and dark spots. Best to avoid getting sunburned in the first place!
Always wear sunscreen when you go out in the sun! Your risk of developing skin cancer doubles after being burned only five times! Learn more from one of our previous blogs about sunburn by clicking HERE
But what do you do if you get sunburned?
Well, you can go to the store, and there you’ll find hundreds of pain relievers and creams and lotions, all claiming the best relief for sunburn. But did you know that noni might provide the best relief for your sunburn?
Noni contains several different compounds that help with pain relief, inflammation and healing, making it a great treatment for sunburn. It contains:
- Scopoletin, which is the main compound that relieves pain and reduces inflammation.
- High levels of antioxidants, which reduce free radicals and the breakdown of collagen in the skin.
- Vitamin C, which erases age spots and can reduce future damage of the skin. A diet high in antioxidants, particularly Vitamins A, C, and E, has been shown over time to reduce the damage caused by UV rays. (This does not mean you can stop wearing sunscreen!)
But how on earth is a fruit going to help your painful skin right now?
Thanks to our water-based, organic noni lotions, it’s easier than ever to find real relief and healing for your sun damaged skin!
Try our Noni Lavender Lotion on your sunburn to feel real relief from itching, burning, and inflammation. Within minutes after applying you will feel soothing and cooling relief as the painful sting from your sunburn subsides and the compounds in noni go to work reducing redness and healing your skin.
If your sunburn is blistering, or if you “missed a spot” when applying sunscreen, use our Noni BioBandage on these areas. It will provide a healing, relieving shell and protection for those extra tender areas of sunburn.
This summer make sure you get outside, stay active and stay healthy! Enjoy the sun, enjoy your friends, enjoy your family, and enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer. But make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen and take care of your skin by making good use of our Organic Noni Lotions!
