Pre-protected as you may be with sunscreens and their SPF, hats, towels and much more, he is not going to spare you and the result – a hot, red, painful and unattractive skin. So to help you deal with this problem here we are with some amazing beauty tips that would help you cover up your sun burn in the best way possible. Read on.
Treat the Burn
Camouflaging your sunburn should not mean that it is left untreated. The first thing you should do is to try healing your skin and reduce the redness and irritation. It is the same as you do when you suffer from anxiety. Experts suggest applying Aloe Vera gel or the Bio Oil available in market to your face. This would heal and soothe the inflamed skin.
Hydrate the Skin
Skin hydration is absolutely essential to restore the original glow of the skin. This could be achieved with the help of hydrating sprays that contain essential oils and vitamin c. Avoid using moisturizers that contain salicylic acid in order to further aggravate the redness of the skin. You can even keep your moisturizer inside the refrigerator for a more cooling sensation. Moisturizers also enhance the skin’s absorption of the makeup base.
For sun burned skin, it is necessary that you apply a sunscreen without fail to avoid the skin getting burned even more. Prefer applying physical sunscreens that contain zinc oxide or titanium oxide
Do not use Petroleum Jelly
Do not use petroleum jelly as a moisturizer after sunburn since it prevents heat from escaping and thus worsens the burn.
On a sun burned skin, you should only have a minimal mineral makeup to cover up the redness and avoid skin damage and irritation. Instead of mineral make-up you can even opt for airbrush spray make up tapped with a non latex sponge.
Do not use liquid foundations as these block the skin pores and mix some amount of moisturizer to the foundation to keep the skin hydrated.
Apply a bronzer cover up the redness on your face such as forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and to have a even skin tone. Avoid pink bronzers and apply it with a soft brush to avoid causing irritation and redness.
Avoid using dark lip colors and lipsticks in order to worsen the appearance of your sun burned skin. It is suggested to use simple lip gloss instead.
Eye shadows and mascara
These two are the best way to divert the public attention from your sun tanned skin. You can use extra mascara coatings and a dark eye make-up, however, avoid purple and pink eye shadows.
Having a sun tanned skin is a serious problem only, if you do not take good care and have a plan ready for trouble.
