The Memorial Day Sunburn: How to Deal

Attention, sun worshippers! Chic's very own Dr. Oz (of beauty), Francesco Clark, is here to help. 

"So it’s the week after Memorial Day, and everyone has been running around the Hamptons or Berkshires. The return to Manhattan always feels like the trip back to school. As you return to your cubicle, it hits you: "I thought I had applied and reapplied sunblock all weekend, but I look like the Red Lobster mascot. What the frick?" One helpful nutritional remedy to help prevent damage is to take beta-carotene before going into the sun, as the antioxidant will help stage off the free radicals of the UV rays, but this should be used in conjunction to generous sunblock applications. 


Here are my quick, at-home remedies for sunburn relief:


1. Vinegar. Mix it with cold water in a spray bottle and reapply as often as you like. It won’t get do much about the redness, but it will help you get rid of the pain very effectively. Weirdly, I didn’t even notice the smell—probably because my skin just soaked it all up. I added a drop or two of lavender oil to make it more pleasant before spraying. Tip: don’t rub the vinegar in. Spray or gently splash it on and let it drip dry. You don’t want to aggrevate the skin!


2. Cold tea bag compresses. Make tea, place the used bags in the freezer until almost frozen solid, and place as many bags as you can spare over the affected area. This will help with the inflammation and pain.  


3. A make-it-yourself body mask. Combine oatmeal, aloe vera, a couple of crushed vitamin E tablets, and a drop of tea tree oil (to help keep the area free of infection and promote healing). This is going to get messy, but after cooling it for about 30 to 45 minutes, slather it and reapply it and leave it on as long as you can. It’ll help cool the heat of the area and decrease inflammation.
