Body detox alternatives for weathering a sunburn

So you've just picked up a pretty bad sunburn in spite of your religious attempts to keep yourself slathered in SPF at all hours of the day - it happens to the best of us. What's most important to know is that there are other ways to recover beyond the use of body skincare products (although aloe vera gel and lotion are just as important).

According to skincare experts who dished their secrets to Vogue.com, there are ways to tone down the extent of the damage even when you see it start to happen. Taking an ibuprofen pill will help reduce swelling and inflammation, and a cold shower or milk compress can lower body temperature, the news source reports.

If you're going into sun rehab, it's best to reach for a body lotion that's specially designed to treat sun-damaged skin. CND Almond Soothing Creme enlists the aid of shea butter to form a protective barrier to better help the skin heal and provides an intensive moisture treatment for scorched skin.

Those with a particularly nasty burn may wish to use a skincare product that will take down some of the redness and soothe the irritation. Elemis SOS Emergency Cream helps restore the skin's natural balance and provide soothing relief, while Elemis Daily Redness Solution can help reduce the appearance of redness and comfort your irritated complexion.
