Cindie Allen-Stewart got a huge shock when she recently shared her go-to home remedy for sunburn with her facebook friends. It went viral! This proves just how many people are being affected by this common complaint. Here’s what she said.
“I recently told a friend about a sunburn treatment that works wonders and she told me she had never heard about it. I thought I’d make a post because I was sunburned recently.”
There’s no “trick,” and it takes one product you may already have hanging out in your bathroom cabinet. It is Foamy Menthol Shaving Cream.
She says this unusual remedy works in a few hours and she almost never peels. She also explains that it is better to have someone rub it in on your back as it is very cold. She lets it soak for around 30 minutes and then washes off with lukewarm water. If the burn is still there the next day, she repeats.
When experts were asked about the treatment, Dr. Ross Radusky told Inside Edition that it’s a good moisturizer given that it has a substantial amount of coconut oil and coconut butter. It is this combined with the glycerin that helps repair the damaged skin.
