Naturally hydrating and moisturizing to the skin, cucumbers are a great home remedy for painful sunburns. Whether juiced or sliced, applying cooling cucumbers to your skin can help reduce the inflammation and itching often brought on by sunburns. You might think about eating some too; cucumbers have powerful antioxidants that help protect your skin cells by building up collagen and elastin.*
For an even more powerful natural home remedy for sunburns, combine some cucumbers slices, aloe Vera, and vitamin E oil into a blender. Liquefy and apply the cooling concoction directly to your scorched skin and let the healing begin.
