Milk and Honey Calming Compresses
Next time your skin is red and sore from too much time spend in the sun, skip the far from natural aloe gel and simultaneously promote healing, prevent peeling, and relieve discomfort through the power of whole milk’s lactic acid fat. Combined with the antibacterial and moisture-boosting properties of honey, these compresses will help immediately alleviate discomfort and reduce redness white also cutting healing time. Top that with antibacterial coconut oil applied to moist skin and you’ll lock in healing moisture and prevent infection, too.
1 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons raw honey
1 tablespoon extra-virgin cold-pressed coconut oil
- In a small bowl, mix whole milk and homey until well combined.
- Saturate cotton pads (or soft washcloth for larger areas) with the mixture and apply to sunburned skin
- As the compresses warm from your body’s heat, discard and repeat until your skin is soothed.
- While your skin still moist, massage coconut oil into affected areas
Have a fun and safe in the sun 🙂
