Owie! (Sunburn)

on Jun 14, 2016 @ 04:04 pm

This is the first time (that I can remember) that I sunburned my lips.  Who does that?!?!?!  Apparently I do.
I'm headed to SDM after work to look for something that can relieve the pain, and hopefully make the blisters heal.  Does anyone have a homeopathic remedy?  I'm willing to try anything at this point!

(...and yes...lesson learned for sure!  SPF on my lips in the future!)

Anything with Aloe Vera helps with after sun and burns. Try maybe putting some on your lips or a lip balm with Aloe?

Ouch.. I feel for ya, it must hurt like crazy!

I keep aloe Vera leaves in my freezer, and it is safe to ingest so you may want to try that. As juju samples said, anything with aloe. Hope it heals quickly, it sounds very painful.

Everyone is on the right track with suggesting pure aloe - or/and a balm with aloe in it. You are also going to want to avoid anything with perfume in it. A lot of lip balms and lip sticks these days have perfume, so be cautious.

Nivea Sun Lip Care is the perfect product for you to buy today and use for the rest of summer. It's got SPF30 and will help heal your lips right away.

Marcelle cosmetics offers an entire line of perfume-free products, just in case you still want to wear makeup while your lips are healing

Another thing:
Til your lips heal, you should eat only bland foods - no spices, nothing acidic. And try to not lick your lips (even though we usually do that without thinking).

Feel better! xo

Ouch is right! The aloe vera works great and it's natural so you don't have to worry about ingesting chemicals, since it is your lip area that's been affected. I usually buy a bottle at the health food store and keep it in the fridge for emergencies. On a side note, you can even use it if you have sensitive skin in general to help with flare ups. Feel better!

I normally wear lip balm, especially when cycling, but can only imagine the pain!

Aloe is your friend for sure!

When I first moved back to Ottawa, we went cycling in the morning, got home, and my knees were burnt. And the same colour as a watermelon. I couldn`t work for 3 days. Cold cloths immediately got hot, and you could feel the heat from a foot above the new cold cloths as I changed them.

Lesson learnt - the GTA`s smog protects from burns, Ottawa - not so much!

I hope you have a quick and painless recovery!

Oh, Ouch! on Jun 14, 2016 @ 09:21 pm

That sounds so painful!

You can get a lot of lip balms that have spf in them, so make sure to use one of those in the future.

Are you on any medications? Those can often make you more sensitive to the sun, so do be careful! <3 Sending healing thoughts.

Thank you on Jun 16, 2016 @ 03:42 pm

Thank you everyone for the advice and sympathy. @dnbmokus thanks for the link to your article. I'll be reading more on that site for sure!

I think the main thing would be to keep your lips moist.
