How to Soothe Sunburnt Skin
Australia has one of the highest UV ratings in the world, and effectively shielding your skin from the harsh UV rays can feel like a full-time job in the warmer months. Here at Cannabella, we’d always recommend the full Slip-Slop-Slap approach (i.e.wearing sunscreen, a long sleeve shirt, and a hat!) to prevent sunburn before it happens. But at the end of the day, we’re all only human and sometimes we end up soaking in the sun for a little too long. It’s especially easy to misjudge the power of the sun in Spring, when you’re desperate for some much-missed Vitamin D!
You’re probably reading this right now because you’re a recent victim of the Aussie sun. Your skin may be feeling hot, tight, dry, and tender. We’ve all been there. Getting sunburnt is never ideal, but luckily, we’ve got some amazing products that can help to soothe and heal your damaged skin.
What are the benefits of Hemp Jelly for sunburnt skin?
If you’re feeling a bit crispy from recently spending too much time in the sun, we recommend you whip out a tub of our forever versatile Hemp Jelly.
Like most of our products, one of the key ingredients to our Jelly is – you guess it – raw and unfiltered Hemp Seed Oil. Hemp Seed Oil is high in fatty acids and chlorophyll which both help to reduce inflammation, increase moisture, and relieve your skin fast.
Our Hemp Jelly formula blends our favourite ingredient with Shea Butter and Beeswax to lock in moisture and Vitamins E and A, which speed up the healing process. If you prefer to stick to 100% plant-based products, our Vegan Hemp Jelly serves the same purpose and is equally as nourishing for parched skin. By applying either jelly regularly to burnt skin after a shower, you’ll create a nutrient-rich protective layer that your skin will happily drink up as it recovers.
After getting burnt it can feel like your skin is angry with you, but Hemp Jelly can go a long way to helping your skin to forgive and forget!
How can La Tropica Body Serum be used to treat sunburn?
Our La Tropica Body Serum has been specifically designed with the needs of summer skin in mind; to soothe and restore bodies that have received a little too much sun. After a big day outdoors, lathering on this coconut-scented serum will help you to recover fast from UV damage (and smell wonderful at the same time).
We’ve used Aloe Vera, a world-renowned ingredient for treating burnt skin, as the base for our serum. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties and high level of antioxidants, it’s unbeatable in its natural ability to cool you down and reduce the irritation of burnt skin.
Of course, the true secret to soothing sunburn is preventing it in the first place. Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world per person, and avoiding the sun during the hottest hours of the day is your best bet. But, if sunburn does happen, rest assured that with the help of Cannabella Hemp Jelly and La Tropica Body Serum, your skin can find relief and recover faster.
