3. Baking Soda for Your Body
Baking soda can be used to heal sun damaged skin by being applied to the outer layer of your skin. It can be used to break down threatening acids and proteins, and also lead it to balance back your pH levels. This solution can also help with the itching from sunburn and help lock in moisture.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Or use them as a solution for everything!
Lemon juice is a wonderful route for an organic remedy to sun damage on your skin, neck, and chest. The acidity in the lemons known as alpha-hydroxy pushes for cell production and nourishes the skin.
A little lemon juice on a cotton ball is just enough to stimulate all natural cell healing, production and regrowth. Gently swab the damaged areas and leave on the skin until dry for about half an hour. Wash with warm water to hydrate skin before applying moisturizer.
Disclaimer, when using lemons to skin back to health, watch out for irritation after initial use. DO NOT leave on further than 30 minutes, doing so can further damage to your already affected skin.
5. Vitamin C
The three benefits of this vitamin:
1. Rejuvenates skin by encouraging fresh, healthy cell regrowth
2. Tackles premature aging of the skin by preventing free radicals that can damage collagen
3. It discourages enzyme tyrosinase that plays a role in the formation of melanin that is guilty of producing dark spots.
Excess sun exposure increases free radicals that impede collagen production and accelerates aging. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields against the damage from ruining your skin. To prevent skin discoloration, reach for products such as lotions and serums that contain vitamin C. Consuming foods with vitamin C such as kale, kiwi, or oranges can help as well.
