In hot summer, when the sun is fierce, it is inevitable that skin sunburn will occur. After exposure, the skin is extremely fragile and needs special care to recover as soon as possible. What should we do? What should I pay attention to? Next, let’s take a look at what to do after sunburn?
Don’t wash your face with hot water after exposure to the sun: hot water makes capillaries dilate and congest, resulting in patches of flushing and even sunburn. Only cool water can make pores shrink, cool skin, and eliminate heat and redness.
If you want to whiten after sunburn, you must understand
1. The fastest cycle of whitening is one month
We must abide by the physiological mechanism of the skin. Keratinocytes are renewed every 28 days (some of the blackened keratinocytes are metabolized), so it takes at least a month to see some effects if we want to whiten.
2. If you want instant whitening, use foundation make-up
Using a foundation make-up that is one color darker than your skin can whiten your skin quickly, but this is also temporary. If you want to really whiten, you need to rely on skin care measures.
3. If you don’t do a good job in whitening and sunscreen, you will certainly break your skill
What should I pay attention to after my skin is exposed to the sun?
Sunscreen is just like armor worn in battle for whitening. It can protect the skin and reduce the possibility of sunburn. If the sun is not well protected, the skin will be too sunburned, which will also affect the speed of whitening after sunburn. What needs special attention is that if you misuse makeup and maintenance products after sunburn, it is likely to rapidly develop into contact dermatitis. Some sunburned people feel that their faces are burning, and without knowing it, they beat the lotion desperately to calm their skin; Some people are afraid to get in the sun again, but obediently apply sunscreen; Of course, some people think that their skin has been sunburned, and they think that basic maintenance can not be ignored. However, in this way, the injured skin will be more stinging, and it may also present an inflammatory reaction similar to burning.
1. Be sure to stop exfoliating:
It is thought that the skin after sunburn is very fragile, and even gentle exfoliation will make the skin “worse”. You can relax and calm your skin first, and then consider exfoliating care a week later.
2. Proper use of some green tea water can slow down slight sunburn:
After light sunlight, if there is erythema, burning and other phenomena, you can cold compress with concentrated green tea water for 1 hour. Fresh green tea contains rich tea polyphenols and can resist ultraviolet damage. However, it is best to use the new tea of that year, cool it after brewing with boiling water, soak it in facial mask paper or clean towel, and then apply it to the face. After that, maintain it according to daily procedures.
3. Try to choose sunscreens that can lock zinc oxide:
The skin after sunburn is fragile and sensitive. It is recommended to use physical sunscreens. At present, sunscreens containing zinc oxide are commonly used. They can protect UVA and UVB at the same time, and they are not irritating to the skin, so there is almost no allergy. It’s also easy to remove makeup. It’s OK to use olive oil. Gently wipe your face with a cotton swab dipped in olive oil. Finally, wipe off the olive oil with a paper towel.
4. Repair after exposure to the sun needs your “taboo”:
Eat less acidic foods such as sweets and meat, so as not to affect the metabolism of vitamin B groups and cause acne and blackheads. In addition, we should drink plenty of water and eat more fruits and vegetables. Especially cooked tomatoes, which contain a large amount of lycopene, can help repair the skin after sunburn, do a good job in whitening and antioxidation.
How to do after skin sunburn?
First: first, check the degree of sunburn. If it just turns red and doesn’t feel painful, then just apply a few Hydrating Facial Mask. However, if you have reached the level of redness and pain, then immediately rub some sesame oil on it after you go home. Sesame oil has the effect of reducing inflammation and swelling, and can also moisturize the skin.
Second: cold compress. Apply cold compress according to your sunburn. If it’s just a slight sunburn, the best way is to dip the cotton pad in the lotion and apply it in turn. If you have serious sunburn, you’d better put it in the refrigerator to cool down and apply it. The effect is better. Cold compress is best, half an hour each time, two or three times a day.
Third: watermelon cures sunburn. Watermelon can clear away heat and relieve summer heat, and watermelon skin has a wonderful effect in treating sunburn. Gently smear the watermelon skin on the sunburn, and you will find that the water in the watermelon skin is quickly absorbed by the skin. The best way is to cut the watermelon skin into small slices and apply it to the sunburn. Replace the watermelon skin every five to ten minutes. If it is serious sunburn, it is best to choose the chilled watermelon skin and persist for about a week. The effect is obvious.
