    What everyday items can reduce sunburn?


    Some common accidents in the summer involve slips, trips and falls at family barbecues or around the paddling pool. While summertime injuries are usually minor, if you sustain sunburn the effects can be extremely debilitating. If the summer sun catches you out when the shops are shut, it is good to know which everyday items can reduce sunburn.

    Which everyday items can reduce sunburn?

    While many people uncover in the hope of bronzing their skin when the sun comes out to play, the effects of the sun on the skin can be deadly. Not only does repeated, prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays cause ageing and pigmentation, it can also lead to skin cancers.

    In the summer months, if you do accidentally suffer from sunburn, rest assured that there are some everyday items can reduce sunburn in your home. These everyday items can reduce sunburn:

    • Mayonnaise
    • Baby wipes
    • Milk
    • Baking soda
    • Aloe Vera
    • Cucumber
    • Teabags
    • Yoghurt

    A quick search online also reveals that many sunburn victims are fans of potato paste, proving that everyday items can reduce sunburn. This paste can be made by scrubbing your potatoes, popping them into a blender with a touch of water, and applying the paste to affected areas with clean cotton pads.
