While we at selftan.co.za love the idea of a golden tan but recognise the harmful effects of the sun and do not advocate exposing your skin unnessecarily to the harmful of the sun, we often get asked by those who have spent too long in the sun for a remedy for painful sunburn.

We recommend wherever possible natural remedies and happily have come across this fantastic product fromessentialoils.co.za

“This Sunburn Blend, as with all our blends, were born from necessity, when clients requested specialized oils to help with specific problems.

We have formulated this blend using the feedback given by clients on what oils or combination of oils they find most effective.

Please note – this blend should not be used to tan with, and although some people claim that it deepens their tan, and helps to turn a sun burnt skin into a tanned skin – as it was developed to nourish and soothe inflamed and irritated sun burnt skin.

The carrier oils were chosen for their moisturizing and soothing properties, while the essential oils were selecting to sooth the pain, lessen the increased skin temperature, reduce swelling, help to prevent secondary inflammation as well as scarring and marks, promote the repair of the skin, encourage the formation of new skin and limit the damaged caused by the sun.”
