Now that summer is in full swing, many of us are spending more time outdoors and in the sun. While it is great to soak up vitamin D, it is also so important to protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays. We know how important it is to cover up with sunscreen on our face and body before heading out into the sun, as well as reapplying sunscreen when outside for extended periods of time. But sometimes you need sunburn relief!

 

Most of us have had one of those days when you lounge outside on a sunny day by the pool engrossed in a good book and forget to reapply sunscreen. Then the next thing you know, you’re burnt to a crisp. It’s so bad that you can barely move or get dressed without flinching. If you’ve been there at least once, then we’ve got some tips for you to help you find relief after sun exposure

 

Our Top Tips When You Need Sunburn Relief Recovery Roll-OnRecovery Roll-On

Recovery Roll-On is a great option for quick on-the-go application, offering a combination of menthol and white willow bark extract. Since sunburns are hot to the touch, applying menthol, which is cooling, may help bring down some of the heat from the sunburn. Plus the Recovery Roll-On is quick and easy to apply, something you can keep in your beach or pool bag. 

 

Aloe Vera

This has been the go-to for sunburn relief for years. Since aloe vera is commonly used for its moisture-rich properties, it can be effective in helping cool down the skin after sun exposure as well as providing moisture back into the skin. When looking for quality aloe vera, try to find one that is dye-free.

Our Relief Balm is another great topical that may provide additional support to sunburned skin. Our Relief Balm contains our full-spectrum CBD, coconut oil, shea butter, arnica, menthol, lavender, and rosemary. The combination of menthol to cool down the skin and coconut oil and shea butter for extra hydration for dry, sunburned skin can help bring fast-acting relief.

Any time you are exposing yourself to the sun, you want to make sure to stay hydrated. Often when we spend a lot of time in the sun, we naturally become dehydrated in addition to feeling a bit fatigued. Adding in extra water or electrolytes to support hydration can also be helpful with a speedy recovery from sunburn by essentially hydrating from the inside with water and using a topical to hydrate the skin externally.
