How do you get rid of sunburn Fast at home?
The first step is identifying what caused it. That way you will know how to prevent it from coming again.
Were you using your lightening cream during the day?
Lightening creams are best suited to be used at night because that’s when your skin absorbs the most.
Were you going out without a sunscreen?
Please, before stepping out in the sun, wear a sunscreen so as to reduce the risk of having skin cancer in the future. I always recommend the Ivory caps Sunscreen which contains an ingredient called “Zinc Oxide” that supports skin lightening. So make sure when you’re on the lookout for sunscreen, check that it has zinc oxide as one of its ingredients to prevent skin darkeneing.
Sometimes sunburn tend to show few hours after excess sun exposure. Nigeria is hot no doubt, but there are sun protective measures you can adopt such as using sunscreen, wearing shades, cap, hats (be fashionable about it), etc.
Then use face mask powders such as Turmeric or camwood to clear it. These masks help in getting rid of sunburn.
In the past when I was struggling with my skin, I went to use a fake cream like that which gave me black sunburn on the sides of my face.
How did I clear it?
By seriously taking care of my skin with face masks and face scrubs. There are different face masks for different skin types and skin concerns.
Is your face color darker than the rest of your body? Face mask powders can help with that.
If you’re wondering why your face cream isn’t working, try adding face masks to your routine. They help draw out impurities, exfoliate, hydrate, soothe or tone your face.
Face mask powders are even added in black soaps to make them super effective.
