Treat Minor Burns with Aloe

997Should you burn yourself, immediately place your affected area under running, room temperature water to help ease your pain. Then, gently pat your skin dry and liberally apply some all-natural aloe vera gel. Aloe vera will not only soothe your irritated skin, but it’s been known to act as an antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory pain reducer and even a scar inhibitor.*

Aloe vera gel is commonly sold in convenient containers, but it can also be extracted directly out of cut aloe leaves. Remember that if your burn causes your skin to blister, never pop your blisters as this can make you susceptible to infections and will prolong your healing.
