Mother Nature is chock-full of chemicals and nutrients that help to heal your skin from the outside in. The more we learn about holistic health and skin care, the better we understand that synthetic chemicals often do more harm than good. Rather than grabbing the mostly-synthetic products off your average grocery store shelf, start looking for products that use high concentrations of natural ingredients.
Here are some natural skin care remedies for your sun-damaged skin.
Products with plantain powder. Plantains are a member of the banana family and are native to India, Asia, and the Caribbean.

The most notable is an ingredient called allantoin, which is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and helps to relieve red, itchy, sunburned skin. Look for soaps
Make it Better First Aid Spray! If you have badly sunburned, blistered or peeling skin, you’ll need immediate relief. Make it Better First Aid Spray has been specially designed for cuts, bites, and burns – and that includes sunburns. There are several ingredients in Make it Better Spray that work to soothe and heal damaged skin. One of the most potent is comfrey, which has been grown in medicinal herb gardens for thousands of years. It’s often called “knit together,” or “bone knit” because of its ability to stimulate cell regeneration and heal tissues quickly.
Use Aloe Vera. We think everyone should have aloe vera plants growing in their garden or a pot in the window sill. The accessible gel in this plant’s leaves are an instant sunburn soother and can be used for a variety of other ailments. You can use aloe gel directly on your skin.
